The man idolised and aped by Zinedine Zidane, Uruguayan legend Enzo Francescoli (Zizou even named his first-born son after him!), took to the field for Ariel Ortega’s testimonial at River Plate over the weekend – coming away with a four-goal haul, including an audacious overhead kick which, at the age of 50, is risky whichever way you look at it…

Gah. The man’s got the best part of a quarter-century on yours truly and he’s still attempting acrobatics that would put me in hospital for a week.

While we’re here, what say we have a little glimpse into why Zidane regards Francescoli so highly…

Mmm. Creamy Uruguayan goodness.
