LCM - Andrea Pirlo

Football News

Cool, calm and classy - that is the best way to describe Andrea Pirlo.

The 34-year-old is nicknamed “the Architect” and it’s easy to see why because he orchestrates near-enough every attacking move for Juventus and Italy with his pinpoint passing. You could easily make a case for him as arguably the best passer this game has ever seen. He is that good.

That kind of precision has also lent itself well to dead-ball situations and has led to some jaw dropping free-kicks.

Oh, and look at that magnificent beard. Forget what he can do with his feet, that flawless specimen alone is enough to earn him a spot on this list. Marvellous.
