Video: Zinedine Zidane is still really good at football then

The French legend is now 41 but we reckon he could still do a job for most teams.

Last night's annual Match against Poverty was as star-studded as always. The big names were Brazilian Ronaldo and Zinedine Zidane but the likes of Marta, Suker, Hierro and Nedved meant the UN Development Programme All Stars were pretty stacked. Check out the full team here.

The opposition, Swiss side Young Boys, had a sprinkling of class too, including Stephane Chapuisat and two names very familiar to Irish fans, Hakan and Murat Yakin. Chapuisat bagged an early hat-trick before Zidane and his mates kicked into gear.

The man himself bagged the first goal, with this emphatic finish.

And he also showed he still oozes class with this exceptional back-heel pass.

Ronaldo also showed he still had some of his old moves with this bit of magic.
