Lucky fans in the French city of Saint-Etienne were given a treat on Monday [April 20] night as Brazilian Ronaldo and Zinedine Zidane took part in the 12th annual Match Against Poverty. Footballing legends Ronaldo and Zidane were joined by a host of former greats including Clarence Seedorf, Fabian Barthez, Jay-Jay Okocha and Gianluca Zambrotta to name a few.

Brazilian ace Ronaldo had been rumoured to come out of retirement with American side Fort Lauderdale in recent times and the 38-year-old showed he still has what it takes with a hat trick.

Former French international David Trezeguet also played and scored in the match, but it was Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang who shone the brightest as he grabbed a hat-trick during his side’s 9-7 defeat.
