In what has to be one of the best line-ups of all time the original Ronaldo joined Zinedine Zidane, Cafu and Clarence Seedorf, among others, in an all-star XI for the United Nation's 12th annual charity 'Match Against Poverty' in Saint-Etienne, France, this week.
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.
Other players on the all-star team included former France and Manchester United goalkeeper Fabian Barthez, ex-Barcelona and Netherlands defender Frank de Boer and former Bolton and Nigeria star Jay-Jay Okocha.
But it was this delightful goal that was the pick of the bunch, with Ronaldo and Zidane-both who played together at Real Madrid- combining excellently to finish off an excellent move.
