Pirlo and Suarez – Confederations Cup deadball delights

by Back Page Football

The Confederations Cup has barely gotten underway and already we’ve been treated to a pair of stunning free kicks from Andrea Pirlo and Luis Suarez.

Italy overcame Mexico 2-1 thanks to a winner from Mario Balotelli but it was their first goal from veteran Andrea Pirlo that will make all the highlights reels.

In his 100th appearance for the Azzurri, the 34 year old stepped up and curled a wonderful dead ball into the top corner of the next passed a hapless Jesus Corona.

Not to be outdone, Uruguay’s Luis Suarez scored a similar effort in his side’s 2-1 defeat to Spain.

Doubts remain over where the Liverpool striker will be playing his club football next season and this latest wonder goal will only further enhance his appeal to potential suitors.
