VIDEO: Former Chelsea, Arsenal and Liverpool stars play as Zidane provides masterclass

Zinedine Zidane

A number of Chelsea, Arsenal and Liverpool players participated in the charity football match between Ronaldo, Zidane and Friends vs Young Boys Bern.

As much as it maybe a cliche on occasions like this, it was a special match that involved very special players and it resulted in an incredible exhibition.

Premier League teams were represented very well by their former players in the match, with a number of Arsenal, Chelsea and Liverpool players taking part.

Carlo Cudicini, Paulo Ferreira and Claude Makelele were there to represent Chelsea. Patrick Vieira, Robert Pires, Freddie Ljungberg and Davor Suker were there to represent Arsenal. And Liverpool had Jamie Carragher and Steve McManaman representing them.

In truth their was one man that stole the headlines and that was due to a staggering display by former World Cup winner Zinedine Zidane. Zizou well and truly rolled back the years for the match, but he wasn't the only one.

After finding their side 3-0 down within the first 40-minutes, it took some really legendary names to pull the game around.

Zidane claimed the first goal after slamming the ball past the keeper at an incredible rate from close-range. It was then a classy quick brace from Italian legend Christian Vieri to set the scores level.

Young Boys Bern got their noses in front once again following two quick goals, putting them 5-3 up going into the last 25 minutes of the game.

Some really exquisite play from Zidane, once again, saw him set-up former Bolton and Blackburn striker Youri Djorkaeff to make it 5-4. Not long after, Zidane and Nuno Gomes linked-up well inside the box to allow Hakan Sukur to bring the scores back level.

Zidane and Gomes was it once again, this time to set-up Youri Djorkaeff for his second goal, and to put their side in the lead for the first time in the match.

In the final 10-minutes there were three more goals, the first coming from an unstoppable Zidane penalty that nestled firmly into the left-hand side of the net. The second coming from Nuno Gomes rounding the keeper and slotting into an empty goal and finally the last Young Boys Bern goal to end the scoring at 8-6 to Zidane, Ronaldo and Friends.

And despite not getting on the scoresheet and looking rather weighty, Ronaldo pulled off arguably the best piece of skill from the game, wowing fans with his still incredibly quick feet.
