A sandwich has been named after Andrea Pirlo in New York just a month after joining New York City FC
There is this maxim that is widely used with Andrea Pirlo.
'No Pirlo no party' they said and it seems the City of New York is making sure there will always be a party.
A sandwich has been named after Andrea Pirlo in New York just a month after joining New York City FC.
New York specialty sandwich shop No. 7 Sub, in conjunction with Howler, created 'The Pirl'" in tribute to the Italian maestro.
Naturally, the sandwich contains several typical Mediterranean ingredients, including salami, fried zucchini and mozzarella as well as the slightly random inclusion of pickled blueberries.
The veteran Italian midfielder was in action in New York City's 3-1 win over DC United in the MLS on Thursday, August 13.
The win took City to 27 points, although Jason Kreis' men remain eighth in the Eastern Conference standings.
