Andrea Pirlo scores late derby winner, collects reverential hugs
November 30, 2014
Andrea Pirlo proved that you are never a man down as long as you have him on the pitch when he scored a last-gasp winner from distance against Torino. Juventus were reduced to 10 men when Stephan Lichtsteiner was sent off in the 78th minute, but that couldn’t stop Pirlo, who has the strength of 100 men with lesser beards, from guiding a shot into the bottom corner in the final seconds of the match.

After that, Pirlo’s teammates swarmed him with hugs as if they were trying to absorb some of the brilliance dripping off of him. Sadly, there can be only one, though.
