There's no doubting that the Real Madrid legend hasn't lost his touch.
Rest of the World won the contest on penalties at Stamford Bridge on Sunday night.
England took the lead through Jeremy Lynch and would double their lead thanks to his superb half-volley finish into the bottom corner of the net.
But the Rest of the World were not ready to throw the match away and found life thanks to an error from Jamie Carragher, which gifted Usain Bolt the opportunity to pull one back.
Kem Cetinay would equalise for the Rest of the World and send the match into a penalty shootout after the scores remained level at full-time.
