Roberto Carlos, Júlio Baptista And Others To Play A Match In Zimbabwe.
A few months ago, FC Barcelona legends and Zimbabwe all stars played a friendly match in Harare.
The match was the legends’ way of promoting tourism in Zimbabwe through football.
Now, another exhibition match is being planned and this time, it’s not solely a Barça affair.
According to African Football, the match will feature international football legends who at some
point in their career played for a club in Europe.
While we await the full list of players from the organizers, Brazilian legend and former Real Madrid
player, Roberto Carlos is confirmed. Carles Puyol, the Spaniard who made more than 400
appearances for Barça, will also feature in the match.
The retired football stars will be joined by Brazilian, Júlio Baptista who played for Real Madrid, Arsenal and most recently, Orlando City SC.
The match, which is set to take place on June 8, will see the international football legends play
against local footballers in Harare.
