He then scored 59 goals in his time as Fiorentina, before turning out for Genoa and Bologna. He became a bit of a journeyman after that, and though you probably thought he'd called time on his career, he is in fact still going strong at the ripe old age of 35.

The 2006 World Cup winner signed with Serie B side Spezia in October and proved he still has with a brilliant brace in the 2-1 win over Cittadella on Friday.
