Where do you grow skills like that?

The other striker just stands there and lets the magic occur. Great goal

Is it just me or is Pirlo starting to look a little bit old? I'm wondering if Lippi will want to stay with him as the playmaker all the way until the wold cup next summer. He can still deliver a pass better than almost anyone, but the physical aspect of the game might be beginning to pass him by.

For what it's worth, the Amazing Dr Z* on Contacto Deportivo said Mexico would start this lineup tomorrow:

---------------Osvaldo Sanchez

R. Osorio--R. Marquez--A. Galindo--C. Salcido

--------P. Pardo---Leandro Augusto

Gio dos Santos--------------Alberto Medina

-------------------Nery Castillo
--------------Carlos Ochoa

*all of Dr Z's reports, whether factual or not, come from the highest placed sources.

That was sick! Sick!

And seeing the Azzurri (or is it Assuri) lose is an added bonus.

hmmm, will chelsea pick him up over the summer?

Even more amazing was Pirlo thinking he could walk that ball out of danger!

What a surprise, a bunch of Italians on the floor complaining

CGomez can do that.

@ PHXguy:

That's exactly what I was thinking! On the interception, he has two immediate releases available on short passes away from pressure.

Nice work by Robinho to A) Take advantage of Pirlo's casual play and 2) Shake and bake to open a gap for his left foot

The other Brazil goal was almost as good. It's annoying and obvious, but damn they're fun to watch.

I saw it live, and about a dozen more times since, and that goal doesn't get any less impressive over time.

BTW, is it just me, or did GianLuigi Buffon have a real Alice Cooper vibe going yesterday?

On the one hand, it takes a very talented player to skin Pirlo, Zambrotta and Buffon on the same play. On the other hand, Pirlo and Zambrotta are aging fast; even Leo Messi couldn't have pulled off that move three years ago. Lippi needs to shake up the Azzurri even more than he has, and bring in a few more young players. If he relies too much on the veterans of 2006, Italy may not get very far at the next World Cup.

Great camera work.

Speaking of great goals, Giggs still has it at 35.
