Andrea Pirlo begins 2017 in typical Pirlo fashion by kicking the sun

How many players, past or present, do you know that would feel confident in trying to kick the sun?

Of course, the only appropriate answer here is Andrea Pirlo.

When it comes to the Italian maestro, all the world's a set piece and we are merely dead balls, waiting to be curled around a wall. In this case, the ball is the sun and the ocean is his barrier. We're guessing this went in off the underside of the crossbar, with outer space serving as the woodwork.

What will he do next?
