Football Idols Zidane and Ronaldo Team Up in UN Ebola Fundraiser

From an online report, football idols Zinedine Zidane and Ronaldo will be leading a star-studded team in a friendly match on Monday, aimed at raising money to help Ebola-hit Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone.

The 12th annual 'Match Against Poverty', organised by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), will be contested in France between French club AS Saint-√Čtienne and a team of past and present international players.

Former France captain Zidane and renowned Brazilian striker Ronaldo, both UNDP Goodwill Ambassadors, will be joined by Ivorian Chelsea striker Didier Drogba, retired Dutch midfielder Clarence Seedorf and ex-Brazilian captain Cafu.

Proceeds from the annual match have previously helped to fund earthquake reconstruction in Haiti and Pakistan, post-typhoon recovery efforts in the Philippines and post-famine relief to the Horn of Africa, according to the United Nations.
