Living Legends United

  • Written on:

The mood was wonderful behind the stadium, as the players from Ivory Coast, Ghana and Cameroon got together before the big Unity Game.

They might be rivals in two weeks,  but none of that could be seen when they got together and goofed around like kids.

First up were some events with a football twist where the stars played to raise money to UNEP.

And the game itself? It was quite epic. Seeing all the stars together on the pitch, side-by-side in mixed teams united by one jersey is in itself both unique and totally, totally awesome.

Eto’o, Drogba, Mensah, Kolo & Yaya Touré, Muntari, Idrissou, Song, Eboué, Keita, Paintsil, Gervinho, Appiah, Kameni, Zokora – all the stars were there to show their support for Africa and football - showing the world massive statement of the Africa Unity Kit that football can bridge borders and unite people from 53 countries as one.

It was almost a pinch-your-arm kind of experience. PUMAFootball felt so very proud to stand by the sidelines and watch Ivory Coast, Ghana and Cameroon play together – united for Africa and football.
