Born on May 19, 1979 in Flero, Lombardy, Italy, he made his debut for Brescia against Reggina at the age of 16. After making into the Brescia first team, he was spotted by the Internazionale coach Mircea Lucescu and signed him to the club. However, he wasn’t able to break into the first squad. Inter finished eighth in the 1998-99 Serie A campaign.
As a deep-lying playmaker, he is praised for his technique, dribbling, control, incredible vision, inventive play and his accurate passing ability. He was nicknamed “l’architetto” (the architect) by fellow Italian players because of his long passes that frequently setup goal-scoring chances for the national team.
Pirlo has also played for the Italian youth teams – U15, U18 and U21. He captained the U21 team and lead to victory in the 2000 UEFA European Under-21 Football Championships where he earned the Golden Player and Top Scorer titles in the tournament. He was part of the national team in the qualifying round for the 2002 World Cup and captained the team for a bronze medal in the 2004 Olympics.

He was the man of the match for three times, including the final game, that is more than any other player in the tournament.

He was also elected to be part of the Euro 2012 Team of the Tournament after leading the national team to the finals and winning man of the match award three times, the most for any player along with Andres Iniesta.
Pirlo joined the AC Milan and has won two UEFA Champions League and two European Cups in 2003 and 2007, two Serie A titles in 2004 and 2011, a 2006 FIFA World Cup, an Italian Super Cup in 2004, and the Copa Italia in 2003.
