Chilavert scores in emotional farewell
Paraguayan goalkeeper Jose Luis Chilavert fittingly scored during his farewell testimonial match at Argentine first division club Velez Sarsfield.
RONALDINHO: Feet on the ground!
The 39-year-old former Paraguay captain, who notched 56 goals from penalties and free kicks during a 24-year career, equalised from the spot in a 2-1 win over a South American All Stars team in Monday night's game.
Both sides were made up largely of retired players, Velez fielding many of the team that Chilavert helped to win the South American Libertadores Cup and World Club Cup 10 years ago.
Chilean Ivan Zamorano, Uruguay's Enzo Francescoli and Colombians Carlos Valderrama and keeper Rene Higuita played for the All-Star team coached by Argentina's 1986 World Cup-winning coach Carlos Bilardo.
Chilavert led Paraguay to the second round in the 1998 World Cup and also played in the 2002 tournament in Asia.
