Legendary match on the cards

Arsenal legends Thierry Henry, Dennis Bergkamp and Robert Pires are set to take part in a charity match against a star-studded Milan side on 3 September.

The two footballing greats will field several past stars of the game between them at the Emirates Stadium, with all proceeds from the affair to go to the Arsenal Foundation.

David Seaman, Lee Dixon, Freddie Ljungberg and Emmanuel Petit are also set to lace up their boots once again for Arsenal.

Seven-time European Cup winners Milan are yet to announce a full list like Arsenal, but have confirmed Paolo Maldini and Franco Baresi will feature for them.

Cafu and Filippo Inzaghi have also been announced as participants for Milan. A very strong Milan side is expected to be taking part in the match.

The match promises to be a treat to watch for all football fans. One of the greatest footballing attacking duos will be going head-to-head against arguably the greatest defensive pairing in football history. Milan fans will also be overjoyed to relive the glory moments of the past after such a dismal patch of form for the past few years.

It will be interesting to see who comes out on top and will be keenly watched even though it’s just a friendly match.

Full Arsenal legends list:

Jens Lehmann, David Seaman, Lee Dixon, Nigel Winterburn, Steve Bould, Silvinho, Giovanni Van Bronckhorst, Robert Pires, Freddie Ljungberg, Ray Parlour, Marc Overmars, Anders Limpar, Edu, Emmanuel Petit, Gilberto, Dennis Bergkamp, Sylvain Wiltord, Thierry Henry, Kanu.
