Bearded football artisan Andrea Pirlo has scored five goals for Juventus this season and all five of them have from direct free kicks. His latest bit of sorcery was the only goal in the second leg of Juventus' Europa League tie against Fiorentina, allowing Juve to advance on a 2-1 aggregate score. Have a look...

When asked after the match how he decides which of his various free kick techniques to employ, Football Italia reports that the 34-year-old midfielder replied:

“How do I decide which way to take free kicks? I make my decision at the last moment. This time I looked at the wall and decided to hit it with more power."

As for the other four, Juventus' YouTube channel edited them together and added a fitting soundtrack to create 47 seconds of pure viewing pleasure.

And now you're pregnant.
