Spectacular Goal

Clarence Seedorf made an impressionful mark during his lengthy career as an amazing free-kick taker, winning four out of the five Champions League finals that he participated in with Ajax, Real Madrid and AC Milan - four consecutive Champions League trophies won! However, he will always be remembered for his amazing goal against Inter Milan in 2003-04 Derby della Madonnina match-up.

Seedorf let fly with an incredible strike into the top corner, leaving Lehmann no chance. His goal became one of the greatest ever seen and became instantly legendary.

Oleksandr Zinchenko and Andriy Shevchenko will lead Team Blue and Yellow as they fight it out to raise funds for rebuilding schools in Ukraine. Petr Cech and Jens Lehmann are expected to feature alongside them, and proceeds from the match will help rebuild one. Additionally, performances by Melanie C from Spice Girls as well as Pete Doherty Tom Grennan Ocean Elzy Band and Ukrainian artist Vakarchuk from Boombox are expected at Stamford Bridge this Saturday!

Re-watchable Goal

Seedorf's goal at Game4Ukraine was a classic. The Dutchman turned back time by unleashing one of his trademark screamers into the top corner, sending shockwaves through a charity match organised by former AC Milan teammate Andriy Shevchenko.

The 47-year-old began his strike with a quick shimmy, easily passing his defence with one flick of his right foot. From a regular camera angle, his shot may seem perfectly straight; however, it eventually takes an unexpectedly devious bend not long after leaving his foot.

Former Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech and Arsenal legend Jens Lehmann both served on Shevchenko's Blue team, while Arsenal legend Jens Lehmann captained Oleksandr Zinchenko's Yellow team, respectively. Also present were such legends as Gerard Pique, Patrick Vieira, Fabio Cannavaro, Samuel Eto'o, Gianfranco Zola and Michael Essien; proceeds raised at Game4Ukraine will help rebuild a school that had been destroyed due to Russian strikes in Chernihiv.
