Ghana international, Sulley Muntari, joined South American football legends Ronaldo and Diego Maradona who were among the old players dusting off their boots for a one-off appearance in Switzerland on Friday.
A huge number of past heroes turned out in the Swiss city of Brig to play in a legends match for FIFA president Gianni Infantino.
Alongside the famous pair were the likes of Alessandro Del Piero, David Trezeguet, Gennaro Gattuso, Clarence Seedorf and Gianluigi Buffon to name but a few.
The match is not the first Infantino has organised, and it comes almost 18 months after he marked his first day as FIFA president with a star-studded friendly.
A huge 52 former players turned up for the event, with plenty of media and supporters arriving to watch the match on Friday afternoon.
The players were split into three teams – an Italian XI, a Switzerland XI and a World XI – with the crowd being wowed by their skills on the pitch.
Maradona, of course, is not quite in the shape he was back in his heyday but he still managed some flicks and tricks, much to the crowd’s delight.
There was a place for Swiss-Italian Infantino in all three of the squads of course, as his mother watched on from the sidelines in his hometown.
The match took place at Infantino’s old football club FC Brig-Glis, with the stands packed out for the aptly-titled ‘Gianni’s Game’.
Muntari, Ronaldo, Diego Maradona and Gianluigi Buffon were among the 52 legends
