Stats don’t lie: Ashley Young is better than Pirlo

by Josh Powell | June 25, 2012

It’s official. Match Attax never lie. Ashley Young is clearly better than Andrea Pirlo in every single way possible.

Whether it’s crossing, passing or shooting, Young (26) is far superior.

Even when required to come back and defend the England man has the edge over the 33-year-old Italian.

Don’t let Pirlo’s range of passing, ability to create space, or world-class penalty tekkers fool you. Ashley Young is far and away the better player despite the scoreline last night.

Don’t believe us? Here’s an exciting video of Young making loads of defenders look silly and scoring some wonder-goals. *Warning* This video does contain some of that crazy dance music that all the kids are listening to these days.

Strangely the lads at Paddy Power haven’t clocked on to the Match Attax stats and Pirlo is a 7/1 shot to be named player of the tournament.
