Video: Alessandro Del Piero Scores Screamer for Sydney FC

He's a class act isn't he?

I mean, at 38 years of age, no one expected Alessandro Del Piero to still be going strong since leaving Juventus. But oh, how has the Juventus and Italian legend proved critics wrong. Not only has he continued to shine, but has done so to record-breaking effect.

Del Piero just notched up his 12th goal for Sydney FC, adding to the new record he has set for Sydney FC as their all-time top scorer in a single A-League season. What is more, Del Piero did so in emphatic fashion—do yourself a favour and watch the attached strike.

With Sydney FC down 1-0, Del Piero picked up the ball in the Perth Glory half, lined up a shot on his non-dominant foot and belted a strike into the top right corner of the Perth Glory net. The former Juventus captain left Glory keeper Danny Vukovic helpless as the ball flew right past the Perth No. 1 to bring Sydney level with the home side.

With 12 goals and four assists already to his name, who's to say Del Piero's career is over just yet?

"Oh my word, what do you say to that?"

Nothing...just sit back and watch as Alessandro Del Piero continues to age gracefully. 

A true legend of world football.

Enjoy.
