On this day in 1999, Juventus hosted Udinese at the Stadio delle Alpi. The home side broke the deadlock through Daniel Fonseca, but the Zebrette replied via Roberto Sosa.
Nevertheless, birthday boy Edgar Davids provided an exquisite corner kick for Filippo Inzaghi who struck the volley home to give the Old Lady all three points.
“Super Pippo” then wildly celebrated with his teammates, including a young Thierry Henry who eventually left towards North London following a short spell in Turin.

1999 was a bad season for Juve, but Pippo and Davids had good a good season. A typical inzaghi finish. A bit akward execution and not the cleanest of hits but over the goal line it goes and celebrated as it was his first ever Serie A goal. Inzaghi was a akward striker of a genious who`s read of the game was absolutely borderline brilliant and I don`t know of any other who have ever matched his movement.
