UEFA and the UN brought together football legends for a charity match which was played at La Praille Stadium in Geneva. At 4.00 pm, Pierluigi Collina blew the starting whistle for this charity match. The Match for Solidarity brought together team captains Luís Figo and Ronaldinho, and their legendary players for a common cause—the UEFA Foundation for Children—in a match in which a football became a symbol of hope. The goal of the match was to reduce inequality, which is one of the 17 sustainable development objectives set out by the UN.
The La Praille Stadium in Geneva reverberated to the rhythm of the teams dribbling, first touches and volleys and bicycle kicks united in solidarity. Legends present included Éric Abidal, Vitor Baia, Cafu, Ronald and Frank de Boer, Deco, Dida, Youri Djorkaeff, Edmilson, Alex Frei, Luis García, Nuno Gomes, Christian Karembeu, Robbie Keane, Patrick Kluivert, Henrik Larsson, Jari Litmanen, Gaizka Mendieta, Robert Pirès, Pirlo, Célia Šašić, Michel Salgado and Kelly Smith.
