Andrea Pirlo did what Andrea Pirlo does. He scored Italy’s third with a perfectly placed free-kick from 30-yards out. Then celebrated like he and his beard knew it was going to fly in to the top corner all along.
Italy’s comfortable 4-0 win over San Marino in their friendly on Friday was as predictable as an episode of Two And A Half Men. But with some actual entertainment. And Pirlo’s beard is considerably more manly than Ashton Kutcher’s.
Awful sit-coms aside this is a rather tasty free-kick and on this quiet weekend of football it will do to tide us over until tomorrow’s international friendlies. Enjoy.
