Ex-Juve striker Anastasi dies, aged 71

Former Juventus striker Pietro Anastasi, who scored in Italy’s 1968 European Championship final victory over Yugoslavia, has died at the age of 71, the Turin club announced Friday.

“Today is a sad day for Juventus, Italian football and for all those who knew him. Pietro Anastasi has left us at the age of 71,” said the Italian champions in a statement.

Anastasi spent eight seasons with Juventus, playing in three league title winning teams.

He scored 130 goals in 303 games during his stay before moving on to Inter Milan, Ascoli and Lugano where he ended his career in 1982.
