Andrea Pirlo plays an inch perfect long range through ball v Brazil

Italy and Brazil drew 2-2 on Thursday night in a friendly in which Mario Balotelli stole most of the headlines with a superb goal.

However, now aged 33, Italy and Juventus midfielder Andrea Pirlo is rated as one of the best central midfielders in the world.

Last night the veteran midfielder played a pass to slip in his teammate that simply oozed class and outrageous vision.

If he keeps on playing passes like this he’ll be playing until he’s sixty. His footballing mind is something us fans can truly admire.
