The 12th annual contest against poverty raised money to help fight the Ebola virus in West Africa. The match was played against a Saint-Etienne XI, which featured past and present stars, with the French outfit taking a 9-7 victory over the team of all-stars.

A capacity crowd of 35,000 turned out at the Stade Geoffroy-Guichard to watch as former United winger Karel Poborsky set up David Trezeguet for the opening goal, whilst Ronaldo proved he's still got it after scoring a hat-trick.
