Miroslav Klose makes impact in Lazio's 5-2 win over Verona

ROME (AP) Miroslav Klose provided a perfect cross and Keita scored with a precise volley for a key goal in Lazio's 5-2 win over last-place Hellas Verona in Serie A on Thursday.

Alessandro Matri, Stefano Mauri and Felipe Anderson had put Lazio ahead 3-0 before Leandro Greco and Luca Toni brought Verona back within one entering the final 10 minutes.

That's when Klose showed his experience by stripping the ball from Verona, waltzing up the right flank and lifting a cross toward the charging Keita to put the match out of reach two minutes after he came on.
