Tehran Times – HAMURG, Former Iran national team captain, who played in the FIFA All-Star match against Mexico’s All-Star friendly on Thursday, believes that Ronaldinho is still one of the best footballers in the world.
The game was held in a stadium which was under renovation so there were no fans while the FIFA officials were the only spectators. The game time was divided into four 20-minute periods and the Iranian went to play in the third period alongside Salgado, Marcel Desailly, Ronaldinho, Aimar and the other.
“Ronaldinho is really a great player. He has an unbelievable control on the ball and made a lot of technical moves during the match. He also provides an assist for me to score a goal. At the end it was a great honor for me as an Iranian to take part in the FIFA congress and also FIFA All-Star friendly game,” he added.
The 66th FIFA Congress is shaping up to be a historic one for the organization. Not only will the assembly in Mexico City be the first one presided over by FIFA President Gianni Infantino, but it will also mark the first time that FIFA’s supreme body meets under the revised FIFA Statutes that came into force on 27 April.
