Alessandro Del Piero celebrated his 800th professional match with a goal and a Sydney FC victory over Perth Glory.
The former Juventus legend has now notched up 705 games with Juventus, 91 for Italy at various levels and four in a Sydney shirt.
Pinturicchio could not have asked for a better day on which to mark the historic occasion, as he was on target to complete a comeback and beat Perth Glory 2-1.
Sydney had been trailing 1-0 at half-time and away from home, but Del Piero converted a penalty in off the inside of the upright.
Emerton then completed the turnaround with a lob.
