Verona were heading for a 2-1 win at the Stadio Marc’Antonio Bentegodi until the Ghana international climbed off the bench to power a home a sensational low-volley to peck the scoring and earn a point for his side.
A strike in each halve from Luca Toni and Iceland international Emil Hallfreðsson gave the host a comfortable 2-0 lead but Antonio Di Natale halved the scoring with a powerful finish in the 56th minute and Badu settled the scores with a 92nd minute bullet.
