Ronaldinho's Highlights Vs Team Roberto Carlos Are Joyous, He's Football's Best Entertainer

Ronaldinho's highlights from 'The Beautiful Game' vs Team Roberto Carlos have emerged and it's fair to say the Brazilian legend put on a serious show.

The charity match took place at the DRV PNK Stadium, home of David Beckham's MLS franchise Inter Miami, and featured a slew of footballers from past and present.

Cafu, Rivaldo, Patrick Kluivert, Paul Pogba, Paulo Dybala, Alphonso Davies and Vinicius Jr were just some of the big names involved.

Ronaldinho's side were beaten 12-10 in an absolute goalfest but he was still the most enjoyable player to watch by some distance.

The 2005 Ballon d'Or winner, with a big chain hanging on his neck, opened the scoring with a tidy finish into the bottom corner after slaloming in between defenders in the build-up, while he also set-up compatriot Vinicius Jr.

And of course football's greatest entertainer had to bust out a plethora of flamboyant, no-look passes.

Some didn't quite pull out but then in the second half, just before half-time, 'R10' took us straight back to his Barcelona days with a ridiculous disguised pass in behind for Dybala.

The Argentine went for an elaborate finish and denied Ronaldinho a sumptuous assist. He also went close with a curling free-kick that just sailed over the bar and onto the roof of the net.

There really aren't many better sights than watching Ronaldinho strut his stuff, even if he retired seven years ago and isn't as sharp as he was in his pomp.

On YouTube, a compilation of Ronaldo's best bits has been posted online and it doesn't disappoint.

When Vinicius scored in the first half from Ronaldinho's past, he couldn't help but perform the very same dance as his idol in a superb tribute.

Real Madrid's Champions League hero also did a wonderful bit of showboating in pulling off the 'Seal Dribble' and juggling the ball on his head. The Samba sauce really was all over the place.
