Some of the biggest names in world football will congregate at the Nou Camp on Tuesday night for a unique charity match to raise money for the victims of the tsunami in south-east Asia.

Organised by FIFA and UEFA in a joint venture, the idea is that 'football will help football' and that the cash raised from the Ronaldinho XI v Shevchenko XI match will go to the Tsunami Solidarity Fund in order to help those involved in football in the affected areas.

FIFA World Player of the Year Ronaldinho will lead one of the teams against a side captained by European Footballer of the Year Shevchenko. Among the players who will be turning out are David Beckham, Zinedine Zidane, Michael Ballack, Kaka, Thierry Henry and Raul. Ronaldinho's team will be coached by Carlos Alberto Parreira and Frank Rijkaard while Marcello Lippi and Arsene Wenger will be in control of Shevchenko's men.

"Football is a game of the people and in this difficult time it is important that the football world is mobilised to help with the tsunami disaster," said UEFA president Lennart Johansson.

"The football world has already acted quickly with FIFA pledging 1million and UEFA and the Asian Football Confederation 500,000 each.

Yeah they played it, a friend of mine said they used 51 players in the game and all the top players in the world was there. He said it was like a training ground match but they did do some good stuff in showing all their skills. What you wouldn't normally see in a match...
