Lionel Messi and Ronaldinho reunite in charity match with star Diego Maradona

In a heartwarming tribute to the late Diego Maradona, a star-studded charity match called the ‘Match for Peace’ is set to take place at Rome’s Stadio Olimpico on November 14, just days before the 2022 World Cup kicks off in Qatar.

Organized by Pope Francis’ organization ‘WePlayForPeace,’ the match aims to commemorate Maradona while raising awareness for global peace initiatives.

The event will bring together renowned football superstars, including Lionel Messi and Ronaldinho, who share a special connection with Maradona and have played alongside him on rare occasions.

The presence of these legendary players adds an extra touch of excitement and nostalgia to this remarkable charity match.

A Star-Studded Lineup: The ‘Match for Peace’ boasts an impressive lineup of registered superstar names, all coming together to pay tribute to Diego Maradona.

Players like Luis Suarez, Ivan Rakitic, Dani Alves, Angel Di Maria, Maxi Rodriguez, Gianluigi Buffon, and Pepe Reina have confirmed their participation. Additionally, the current Roma coach, Jose Mourinho, will also be involved in some capacity, further adding to the allure of the event.

Captaining the two teams will be Ronaldinho and Ciro Immobile, adding their own charismatic flair to the match.

Messi expressed his gratitude for the chance to participate in the charity match, joining forces with Pope Francis and a gathering of esteemed players. Reflecting on the importance of the event, Messi emphasized the collective responsibility to promote peace and create positive change.

Uncertainty Surrounding Messi’s Role: Due to a calf problem, Messi recently watched PSG’s Champions League group stage draw with Benfica from the stands at the Parc des Princes. As the focus shifts to the upcoming World Cup, it remains uncertain what role Messi will play in the charity match.

Given his commitment to the cause and his profound connection with Maradona, it is expected that Messi will actively participate, even if his involvement is limited due to his injury recovery.

Their participation adds a nostalgic touch to the event, captivating fans and reminding them of the immense influence these football legends have had on the sport.

As the world eagerly awaits the ‘Match for Peace,’ football enthusiasts anticipate witnessing the magic that will unfold on the field, celebrating the spirit of unity and goodwill in honor of Diego Maradona’s enduring legacy.
