How the exhibition match panned out

Intriguingly, it was Ronaldinho who broke the deadlock in the seventh minute with a classy finish from inside the box before Falcao restored parity shortly afterwards.

The two goals opened the floodgates of goals, with the likes of Rivaldo, Cafu, and Dybala all finding the back of the net.

However, it was Team Roberto Carlos that was leading by the interval that had seen 13 goals shared between the two teams.

Vinicius Jr, who also scored in the first half after he was set up by Ronaldinho later switched sides after the break, turning out for Team Roberto Carlos in the second half.

The match eventually finished 12-10 in favour of Team Roberto Carlos, with NBA legend Steve Nash also getting his name on the scoresheet.
