Andrea Pirlo’s sensational free-kick at the very end of Italy’s 2-1 win over England last night is arguably one of the moments of the World Cup thus far – and he didn’t even score.
L’Architetto’s swerving free-kick was simply breathtaking, all the more so for the Italian’s characteristic nonchalance.
And the guy at the receiving end of it, Joe Hart, went straight up to Pirlo at full-time go gush over his work.
Doesn’t take a lipreader to make it out: ‘WOW! Fucking hell!’
