Time will always erode the past years, making memories gradually mottled. Those stars who have accompanied us, those legends who have influenced football, use the football under their feet to depict a colorful and colorful world.
Knowing the ball Emperor grandly launched the Football Hall of Fame, condensing the touch that every legend brings to us. Every Tuesday night at ten o'clock, wonderful presentations.
In the early 21st century, among the 19 football players selected by UEFA to change the world, Pirlo once commented on Pirlo: a leader with new creativity. He is the youngest player on that list. He has redefined the position of the midfielder historically. He is the last master of art in Italian football so far. In addition to elegance, it is still elegance. Because of his unique literary and artistic temperament and sleepy eyes that can never be opened, Chinese fans kindly call him: Sleepy.
If someone asks you, who is the key figure for Italy to win the 2006 World Cup? Many people will answer Grosso, Materazzi, Totti, Cannavaro, etc., but will ignore the low-key midfielder Pirlo.
In the first match of the group stage, Pirlo shot four long shots, opened the goal of Ghana, and also harvested his first World Cup goal. In the second half, he found Iaquinta with a long pass and indirectly assisted him to seal the victory. In the second game against the US team, Pirlo once again found Gilardino with precision guidance, allowing him to comfortably score the header that seemed vital after the game. Gilardino also contributed the classic World Cup celebration after scoring, playing the violin.
After the elimination of Australia and Ukraine, the Azzurri will face the host German team in Westphalia. And Germany's record in this Devil's home court since 1935 is an astonishing 13 wins and 1 draw.
The strong dialogue progressed to the last few minutes of overtime. Once the penalty kick came into play, it was difficult for the Italians to control the situation in the face of the powerful German team. In 118 minutes, Pirlo volleyed from outside the penalty area and was saved by Lehman. Corner kick.
This time he didn’t take the corner kick. Piero’s corner kick was ejected. Pirlo crossed the front of the penalty area. An ecstasy through-throw lightly downplayed and found Grosso on the right, who made a tricky kick. The odd arc hits the ball into the far corner of the goal. Breaking the deadlock while breaking the German defense line, with Piero's stoppage time goal, Italy entered Berlin!
Everything is dreamlike, as if God's favor, but from then on, there is only regret about the Cup.
Andre Pirlo was born in a middle-class family in Brescia. His father ran an ordinary metal trading company. There was a time when it was rumored that Pirlo’s father was the steel king of Italy, and Sleepy Skin became a rich fan in the eyes of fans. Second generation.
安德烈·皮尔洛（Andre Pirlo）出生于布雷西亚的一个中产阶级家庭。他的父亲经营一家普通的金属贸易公司。曾经有传言称Pirlo的父亲是意大利的钢铁之王，而Sleepy Skin成为粉丝眼中的有钱人。第二代。
When he was a teenager, Pirlo showed a keen interest in football. He could have inherited his father's business and had no interest in business. He was often taught by his father because he played truant to watch football.
At the age of 15, Pirlo got his wish into his hometown team Brescia, but was relegated with the team the following year. In the 96/97 season, the 18-year-old Pirlo's performance helped the team win the Serie B championship and successfully promoted to Serie A.
Although the team was downgraded by one point again in the second year, the outstanding performance of Pirlo has been taken by several giants. In the end, Inter Milan was brought to Milan for the first time with a value of 6 million US dollars in this competition. .
Although Pirlo, who was new to the giants, was appreciated by the coach Simeone at the time, the Inter Milan's big names were gathered at that time, and Pirlo performed mediocrely. He was loaned to Regina the following year. It is worth mentioning that in Regina's time, Pirlo broke through the door of another Milan team twice, laying the groundwork for the ten-year marriage a year later.
After drifting around, Pirlo was once again loaned back to his hometown team Brescia. It is in this small team that Pirlo's football talents gradually began to show. His teammates have his own idol: Baggio, who gave all his football philosophy to each other, and the two masters of art completed the historical inheritance here. (Actually, when they were at Inter Milan, the two were teammates, but they didn't sparkle.)
When Moratti was asked about the worst decision in an interview, his answer was to let Pirlo go to his rival in the same city. In 2001, in a trade between Milan and Inter Milan, Pirlo came to AC Milan.
On September 23, when Pirlo wore a red and black jersey to step into this football hall for the first time, he might not know that he was about to create a new glorious time with his teammates.
With the arrival of Ancelotti, Pirlo finally waited for the bole of his life. An Shuai drastically transformed Milan, the most important part of which was to put Pirlo in the front waist position to the back waist position and the front waist back. This tactic has since been proven to change the course of football. Pirlo released all his football talents in this position. For the next ten years, Pirlo has always been the core of the red and black team's midfield, and has become a real master step by step, unrestrained and effortless.
The following year, with the arrival of Gattuso, Pirlo found the best midfield partner of his career. And Gattuso has only one task on the court to protect Pirlo.
With the escort of bodyguards, Pirlo ushered in an explosion in the 02/03 season, scoring 9 goals, and ranked in Serie A in several statistics such as the number of passes, the success rate of passes, and the number of threats passed. Top of the list.
He and his team finally stood on the stage of the Champions League final at Old Trafford, and the fight with the Juventus midfielder meat grinder consumed Pirlo’s stamina and allowed him to take more than 70 minutes. Being replaced can only witness Sheva's penalty win on the bench. And this victory also allowed Pirlo to get the first championship trophy of his club career.
Subsequently, they won the Italian Cup and the European Super Cup. In the 03/04 season, Pirlo scored 6 goals in the league, all of which were worth a lot of money. They helped the team get 15 points. The team won the league championship again after 5 years.
But in the year he won his first league title, he and his team experienced a heart-wrenching defeat in the Champions League. In the second round of the 2004 UEFA Champions League quarter-finals, Milan was a guest at the Riazor Stadium. In the first leg, Milan beat Deportivo 4-1. The match was won 4:0 by the tenacious Deportivo and the defending champion Reversed out by Riasso Night. Afterwards, Pirlo said that the probability of us being reversed is even lower than the probability of Gattuso getting a Bachelor of Arts.
However, Pirlo and his teammates did not know that a year later, they experienced a nightmare more cruel than the night of Riasso in the Champions League, and the beginning of this nightmare was so beautiful. In the 2005 UEFA Champions League final, Milan played against Liverpool, and Pirlo sent an assist in the opening minute to help the old captain Maldini achieve the fastest and oldest goal record in the Champions League final. It was Pirlo's backcourt strategy that allowed Crespo to score twice, 3:0 at halftime, everything was so perfect.
Later, everyone knows everything afterwards. That night was called the "Istanbul Miracle" and the miracle belonged to the Red Army Liverpool.
"When you feel that you are invincible, maybe you have already taken the first step towards no return. Even if you win 100 trophies in the future, this scar will never heal." Pirlo said afterwards that it was football. That night taught him the truth, he compared the game to the collective suicide of the Milanese, and even had the idea of retiring.
The coronation of the World Cup still cannot conceal the impact of the phone call incident on Italian football. In 2006, it was reported that Pirlo was infinitely close to joining Real Madrid, but the club came forward and called for a stop. Later, a long contract extended Pirlo until 2011, when he will play in Milan for ten years, he said in an interview that he hoped to retire in Milan.
After the renewal, Pirlo and Milan once again embarked on the journey of the Champions League, which belonged to Kaka's Champions League, and also belonged to Pirlo and the whole team. Two years later, they once again stood in the UEFA Champions League final, fate reincarnation, the final opponent is Liverpool. In the Athens Olympic Stadium, Pirlo was the first to sound the horn of revenge, and his free kick was blocked by Inzaghi. With Inzaghi scored twice in the corner flag area, Milan succeeded in revenge.
Time will always allow you to experience the baptism before crowning you the crown. The red and black kings swept Europa and defeated the Boca youth in the Club World Cup with Pirlo's help and attack. At this time, Pirlo won all the championships at the club level and helped Milan become the club with the most cup championships.
In the 09/10 season, with the departure of Kaka, the retirement of Maldini and the departure of the meritorious coach Ancelotti, Milan sought to change in the turmoil. Many giants once again rumors with Pirlo. The first request of the coach Leonardo to Berlusconi is not to let Pirlo go. He is the core of the team's midfield. Pirlo also stated once again that he is willing to end his career in Milan.
Everything looks like a beautiful love, but even the best love will have cracks. And the long-distance love race of this decade was successfully disillusioned with the arrival of Allegri. Under Allegri’s account, Pirlo no longer became indispensable. In the case of his long absence, Milan won 10 /11 season champion.
Allegri told him that if he wants to stay, he must change his left midfield position. Pirlo's heartbreak can be imagined, which is tantamount to the head coach imposing capital punishment on him.
On the night that Milan won the championship, when everyone started celebrating the championship, only Pirlo felt bitter in his heart. He wanted to say goodbye to Milan who had been in love for ten years. When the applause around you is surging like a tide, I see sad tears flashing in your eyes.
There is a classic copywriting on a certain sound, which is exactly from the album Tianzu made for Pirlo: How many decades in life can accompany all the peaks and valleys of a person, but when I stand in the crowd, look at thousands Bai waved his hands, but never saw you again.
It was the best time, as if I had a beautiful relationship with you. Football gives the best gift to everyone who meets her for the first time. When the touching melody of San Siro echoed in the ears, all those who love you know that Li Ge is also singing. Love is no match for reality, and the beautiful fairy tale leaves only a sigh, and there is no return date ever since.
Pirlo, who left Milan, was recruited by Juventus, who was in desperate need of revival. At that time, the Zebra Legion, who was badly injured in the phone door incident, was dormant for a long time, and they handed Shuai Yin to Conte, the meritorious captain. The Italians appreciate Pirlo and regard him as the cornerstone of Juventus' revival, and set tactics around him. In his famous 352 system, Pirlo is still at the back midfielder, and his performance on the court is even more perfect. , Reach into the world.
In the 11/12 season, in the Juventus home opener, Pirlo used two assists to help the team win the perfect performance, which captured the hearts of Juventus fans. And this season, Pirlo used a phenomenal performance to help Juventus win the league championship with an unbeaten record. He won the Serie A assists leader with 13 assists and also won the Serie A player of the season. In Milan, 150 kilometers away, I don’t know if Uncle Ji will be worried because he gave the artist free to his rivals, but Milan fans have been relieved by his decision so far.
In the 13/14 season, the team visited the Bernabéu Stadium in the Champions League. The most demanding fans in the world also stood up to the master. This season Juventus won the league championship with 102 points. Conte retired and joined the Italian national team. . The team ushered in the old acquaintance of Pirlo, Allegri.
Time has passed, the past grievances and entanglements have long gone with the wind, and Allegri still reuses Pirlo in the Zebra Legion. When everyone doubts that you are old, the best counterattack is the champion. During his four years at Juventus, Pirlo helped the Bianconeri to win four consecutive league championships. Looking down on the throne, lonely seeking defeat, few followers.
This season, Juventus won the league and cup championships, they have the opportunity to attack the triple crown, and Pirlo also wants to leave Turin with the only triple crown in his career. The final venue is the Berlin Olympic Stadium where Pirlo and Buffon won the Hercules Cup. Before the game, Barcelona midfielder Harvey praised Pirlo at the press conference and admitted that he has always been his fan and admirer. No one in the world has it. His football art.
It was the last duel of the two masters. Not only one master was the winner, but in front of the better Barcelona, Juventus had little power to fight back and could only watch Barcelona become the Triple Crown. And Pirlo could no longer hold back the tears from the corner of his eyes, and came out for the last time. This is not only tears of broken dreams, but also tears of parting, farewell to this beloved land and glorious past.
Soon, Pirlo went to the United States and spent three seasons enjoying football in New York City. And what makes Milan fans most impressed is that Pirlo and Kaka met again in the game against Orlando. The years of Milan have emerged one by one, leaving behind with beauty and emotion. Feeling that you will stay for a while. Don't sing away from the song.
After the World Cup in Germany, the Azzurri set out again. At this time, Pirlo only needs a European Cup to achieve the Grand Slam of Honor. It's just that this blue is full of melancholy and sentimental after Germany.
In the group stage, Pirlo won a penalty kick to help Italy knock out France into the quarterfinals. However, he was suspended for accumulating two yellow cards and Gattuso was sitting on the sidelines against Spain. Italy is inextricably divided in the fight with Spain. Without the midfield metronome, it can't make a counter-attack and can only drag into a penalty shootout. Later, fans always said that if Pirlo and Gattuso did not have a yellow card suspension, then the results of the night under the Alps in 2008 will be changed.
Two years later in the World Cup in South Africa, the defending champions were out of the team, and Pirlo missed the first two games due to injury. In the final battle against Snovak, two goals in the first half fell behind, and Lippi had no choice but to rely on Pirlo who had just recovered. With Pirlo, the situation in the second half really changed. It was the best second half that I thought might have been the best-looking game. However, the general situation in Italy is gone and there is no way to recover.
I just finished the college entrance examination and looked at Pirlo's tears. What would happen if Pirlo was not injured. It's just that there is no if, only four years later.
Pirlo, who shined in the first Juventus season, brought his excellent form to the 2012 European Cup, the first group match against Spain. In the face of a booming Spain, Italy relied on the single-core Pirlo and the opposite dual-core Xavi and Iniesta. Pirlo sent a long pass, Di Natale took the lead, and there was a famous scene of Balotelli thinking about life in that game. You come and I meet, shake hands and make peace.
In the second battle against Croatia, Pirlo scored directly from a free kick to help the team score a point. In another fight against Ireland, it was Pirlo's corner kick assist, allowing the team to win.
In the quarterfinals against England, the two sides struggled for 120 minutes without a win. In the penalty shootout, facing the gate guarded by Joe Hart, Montolivo, who played second, missed the ball. At this time, Italy's morale was low. Pirlo, who appeared in the third appearance, was calm, strolling in the court, and couldn't make an incredible spoon penalty! The situation on the field was directly reversed, and the confidence of the England team was frustrated, and Italy had a breathtaking advancement to the semifinals.
With Bashen's genius, Italy advanced to the final, this time it was a repeat of the group stage. It's just that Prandelli didn't arrange tactics as in the group stage, and his performance in the semifinals made him decide to let go. The wrong tactics, the luck of consecutive injuries, and a strong opponent made Pirlo unable to cope with the power of the Spanish dual-core explosion, and finally hated Kiev with the biggest score in the final.
Judging from the various performances before the final, this should have belonged to Pirlo's European Cup. The 33-year-old Pirlo watched the European Cup close at hand, the only trophy he had never won in tears. He knew he had no chance, and the butterfly could not fly over the sea, no one could bear to blame.
Two years later, in Brazil, the Italian team went to the World Cup again. Although they had a dream start, they still couldn't escape the nightmare of fate. The first game was still against England. Pirlo was still a master. In the game, he contributed an assist without touching the ball, allowing club teammate Marchisio to complete a wonderful long shot. In the game, he also took a free kick with a weird arc and hit the goal crossbar, making Hart panicked.
The next two defeats allowed the Italian team to be out of the group for the second time. This time the 35-year-old Pirlo had no tears. He decided to accept the outcome of his fate. This was his last competition.
Outstanding vision and superb footwork make Pirlo's long pass with great lethality. And his football wisdom is undoubtedly revealed in every arc of the foot. As long as he stands on the court, you can enjoy his performance. Gattuso once said that watching him play, he will start to wonder if he is a football player.
Do not let Pirlo see the gap between the defender and the goalkeeper, because he will always use a precise long pass to tear open the defense. The striker only needs to appear on the ball to complete a fatal blow.
In addition to the deadly long pass, Pirlo also has a unique trick, that is, his deciduous ball. He once said in his autobiography that he had penetrated the secret of a free kick on the toilet, and the master really responded differently.
Pirlo has been imitating Junior Juninho's free kicks, and once reached the point of madness, until after contemplating on the toilet, a generation of free kick masters came out. "This kind of free kick requires you to use the first three toes to touch the ball, and the feet should be as straight as possible before touching the ball, and then completely relax at the moment of touching the ball. This way, the ball will not spin in the air, but He will land quickly when he gets close to the goal and start to spin. This is my secret of free kicks." In his autobiography, he told the secret of his free kick.
Throughout his career, Pirlo scored a total of 47 horrible free kicks. Later, in the four years of Juventus, Pirlo became more and more devilish, and 15 of the 19 goals scored were scored from free kicks. For Pirlo, kicking a free kick is like kicking a penalty. .
Over the years, no elegant figure can be seen on the court, and the skill of falling leaves has been hidden. We are fortunate to have seen pieces of art you complete on the stadium, so that football can be accompanied by elegance. When the wind started to rise and we turned our heads, you seemed to be standing on the court, and your opponents lined up the wall tremblingly. You opened your sleepy eyes and glanced at the goal, and the fallen leaves hit the net.
