You're a football superfan if you can name all these legends as past icons reunite for epic friendly match | The Sun

ONLY real football fans can name all of these legends as they gathered together for an exhibition match.

The fast pace of football means players get left behind as we focus on the next big thing, but fans are often reminded of the past when players they used to love reunite for friendly games.

And supporters got more than their money's worth last week as an array of stars from the past faced off to mark the centenary of LaLiga side Celta Vigo.

The match, which saw Vigo's legends – dubbed the Lendas Celestes -take on a team of international all-stars, had over 45 ex-pros taking part.

Fans will instantly recognise some of the big name players, but only true football fans will be able to name them all.

Goalkeeping legend Iker Casillas was one of a list of retired Real Madrid players who took part in the game.

While other former Los Blancos players included Fabio Cannavaro, Luis Figo, Roberto Carlos, Fernando Morientes and Guti.

While fellow ex-Bernabeu stars Michel Salgado and Claude Makelele wore the Vigo blue, having also represented the Galicians in their careers.

Ex-Chelsea star Makelele wasn't the only Premier League legend on show, with Arsenal icon Robert Pires and Liverpool cult hero Luis Garcia also playing.

International heroes re-laced their boots to take part in the match as well.
