Italian veteran Antonio Di Natale might not have found the net in his latest outing for Udinese, but he did manage to 'score' with the assistant referee.

The 36-year-old planted a kiss on the man with the flag after he was correctly given offside, with the former Empoli starlet jogging across to the linesman to show his affection.

Apart from Di Natale's romantic moment, it was a game to forget for the hosts, who fell to a 1-0 defeat against Roma.

Michael Bradley scored the only goal of the game for the visitors after 82 minutes, with the winner coming despite the Giallorossi being down to ten-men.

Maicon was sent-off for two bookable offences after 66 minutes, but that didn't stop Roma ending Udinese's 22-game unbeaten run.

Forget the late goal though, and check out Di Natale kissing the assistant referee at the top of this story...
