Andrea Pirlo Makes The Impossible Possible With Stunning Close-Range Free Kick Against Fiorentina

Andrea Pirlo Makes The Impossible Possible With Stunning Close-Range Free Kick Against Fiorentina

Andrea Pirlo has established a reputation as somewhat of a set-piece expert over the last decade.

He’s scored against the biggest teams in the world, from all over the pitch, during a career which has seen the 34-year-old play for Inter Milan, AC Milan and amass 107 caps for Italy.

And the Italian maestro has now added to his impressive back catalogue of stunning free kicks, after scoring a beautiful close-range effort for Juventus to knock Fiorentina out of the Europa League.

By Stuart Hynd – @supers0nic_

The two Serie A sides played out a 1-1 draw a week ago in the 1st leg, and with both teams unable to score tonight’s, the calm, cool and ever-collected Pirlo shimmied up to take what would prove to be the decisive free-kick.

And you can guess what happened next..
