Lazio star Ciro Immobile said “dreams come true” after matching the Serie A goal record and claiming the European Golden Shoe for 2019-20.

Immobile tied Gonzalo Higuain’s record for most goals in a Serie A season with 36 after scoring in Saturday’s 3-1 loss to Napoli.

The 30-year-old Italian forward equaled the feat accomplished by Higuain in 2015-16, while picking up the coveted Golden Shoe award for top scorer in European football.

Immobile outplayed players like Bayern Munich star Robert Lewandowski (34), Juventus superstar Cristiano Ronaldo (31) and Barcelona captain Lionel Messi (25).

“I am super happy and proud of what I have accomplished, especially when I look back at where I started and all I have been through,” Immobile told Lazio Style Channel.

“If you really believe, sometimes dreams come true. I can only thank the coach and staff, my teammates, and I can assure you that these records are for the entire team.

“I also thank the Lazio fans, who made me feel indispensable to this team, and I am very proud of that. I want to be a living example that if you never give up, you can achieve any goal.

“I am very proud to have my place in the history of the sport. I am moved to think of how my teammates greeted me in the locker room after scoring a hat-trick in Verona. That is what the sport is all about.”

Lazio, who qualified for the Champions League, finished the season in fourth position, having played the Scudetto before the coronavirus-imposed break.
