They say class is permanent and all that.

New York City FC's opening goal against the Vancouver Whitecaps was created by a 36-year-old and finished by a 37-year-old.

Andrea Pirlo showed that it's not quite bifocal time for him just yet when he used his weaker left foot like a wand to find full back Angelino, who pulled the ball back into the danger area.

The full back pull back (fun, eh?) landed at the feet of Chelsea legend Frank Lampard who guided the ball into the far corner to score his second goal in three games.

It's good to see two veterans still enjoying their football in the retirement home MLS.
