The annual Match Against Poverty featuring (slimmer) Ronaldo and friends against Zidane and friends once again featured a staggering collection of talents from past and present. In addition to the two legends the teams were named after, the likes of Zico, Juan Roman Riquelme, Roberto Carlos, Romario and Bebeto gathered in Porto Alegre, Brazil to bring back memories of greatness for older fans. But for one young mascot, simply being in the presence of Neymar was enough to bring out the tears.
Ronaldo's team ended up winning 3-2, though the now 40-year-old Zidane did score with a volley off a lovely set-up from Loco Abreu. Here's video of his goal and some pictures from the event...
