When 'a Pirlo' goes bad...

We documented Andrea Pirlo's exquisite chipped penalty against England the other night here, and a couple of days later even the still shots of the dramatic, game-changing penalty shot look super fabulous. However, as always, there is two sides to every coin.

Have a little peek at this footage from a 2010 friendly between Pirlo's AC Milan and the great Barcelona.

Last week we kept hearing the England camp were doing all sorts of scientific research into the potentiality of a penalty shoot-out with the Italians. Seems like time-wasted when you consider that all Joe Hart had to do was watch this YouTube clip.
