Argentinos Abroad: 36-year-old Cambiasso heads Europa League goal for Olympiakos & Fazio scores in Roma defeat (VIDEO)


He might be 37 this year and past his prime but Estéban Cambiasso rolled back the years with a superb headed goal in Olympiakos’ 1-1 draw with Besiktas in the Europa League last 16.

Cuchu joined the Greek giants in 2015 after a memorable season with Leicester City and has already celebrated a league title with Olympiakos but the former Argentina international is now trying to add the Europa League title to his considerable medal collection.

Cambiasso’s well-timed run and powerful header gave Olympiakos a first half lead against Besiktas but the Turkish side leaving with a draw will make them favourites to progress.

Elsewhere in the tournament, Federico Fazio headed his third goal of the season but Roma slumped to a 4-2 defeat away to Lyon.

After a pretty disastrous spell with Tottenham, Fazio has rebuilt his reputation with Roma and was linked to an Argentina call-up in the recent squad.

His towering header had the Italians firmly in control at half time but a ragged second half performance allowed Lyon to come away from the first leg with a two-goal advantage.
