UNICEF Charity Match - The Boots Worn by Legends Such as Cafu, Figo and Ronaldinho - Part 2

After we yesterday took a closer look at the boots worn by the 'Great Britain & Ireland' squad in Saturday's UNICEF Charity match at Old Trafford, we today analyze the cleats worn by the Rest Of The World squad. Managed by Carlo Ancelotti, the Rest Of The World selection features such legendary players as Edwin van der Sar, Cafu, Fernando Hierro, Luis Figo, Ronaldinho and Robert Pires.


While there were again various special boot choices including the on-pitch debut of the next-gen Nike Tiempo Legend 6 Boots in a blackout version, some of the players who were set to take part in the match including Zidane, Vieira and Maxwell were not able to participate in light of the tragic events in Paris.
