    The Brazilian's team emerged 3-2 victors, thanks to a late strike by Tottenham target Leandro Damiao.
    Legendary Italian referee Pierluigi Collina came out of retirement to officiate the game which will raise funds to support projects to reduce poverty in Brazil and Africa.
    In Zidane's side were former greats including Deco, Freddie Ljungberg and Fernando Hierro, as well as futsal star Falcao.

    Ronaldo's squad included Zico, Cafu, Roberto Carlos, Romario and Neymar.
    It was all too much for one mascot, who broke down in tears as he got to meet the Santos star.
    Neymar played in Bebeto to open the scoring for Ronaldo's team before Falcao levelled things up. 
    Zidane led by example as he fired in a fine volley to put his side ahead, but Caca Ferrari and Damiao made sure it was Ronaldo who ended up smiling.

    Famously an off-colour Ronaldo could not help his side during the France 1998 World Cup final, with Brazil going down 3-0 to the hosts. 
    But tonight the Samba star, who has slimmed down considerably in recent weeks, had the last laugh.
