Former Juventus midfielder Andrea Pirlo scored his first goal in the Major Soccer League for New York City FC during their 3-2 victory over Philadelphia Union.
The 37-year-old midfielder finally opened his MLS goalscoring account with a trademark free kick at the Yankee Stadium on Saturday.
NYCFC midfielder Frank Lampard and forward David Villa gave his side a 2-0 lead at half-time, before Pirlo made it 3-0 five minutes into the second-half.
Philadelphia hit back with two goals of their own, but the home side held on ensuring that Pirlo‘s first goal for the club was the decisive goal.
