We miss Andrea Pirlo. A lot. Yes, he plays in the MLS but come on - watching Pirlo's passing dismantle teams on the international stage is something that we'll never witness live again.

That's where Leonardo Bonucci comes in. The Italian defender sent a raking pass forward for Emanuele Giaccherini to score the first goal as Italy beat Belgium 2-0 at Euro 2016 and brought back memories of Andrea Pirlo, while sending the internet into crazy mode as well.

He picked up the ball just behind the half-line and then sent... oh forget it. Just watch.

And here are some reactions on Twitter, which are perfectly justified...

And here's what Bonucci had to say about the assist...

I always did try that kind of pass and doing it regularly leads to improvement, as I’ve done it quite a few times at Juventus and now for Italy. We hope this is just the beginning, because we came here to amaze.
