Paul Pogba and Vinicius Jr feature in Ronaldinho vs Roberto Carlos exhibition

Paul Pogba and Vinicius Jr. were among the big names on show in a star-studded exhibition game hosted by Ronaldinho and Robert Carlos.

Dubbed 'The Beautiful Game', the Brazil legends called on a whole host of famous pals from the world of football for the match at Inter Miami's DRV PNK Stadium.

Team Ronaldinho started with the likes of past heroes Rene Higuita, Patrick Kluivert and Rafael Marquez, plus current stars Pogba, Paulo Dybala and Vinicius Jr. While Team Robert Carlos began with legendary names like Cafu, Rivaldo and Carlos Valderrama, as well as current pros Radamel Falcao, Alphonso Davies and Arturo Vidal.

In an action-packed first-half, Ronaldinho opened the scoring after seven minutes with a classy finish from inside the box. Remarkably, that was the first of 13 goals in the opening 45, as Rivaldo, Cafu, Dybala and Vinicius all got themselves on the scoresheet before half-time.

Even NBA legend Steve Nash got in on the act, latching onto a perfectly timed ball into the box before taking a touch out of his feet and executing a delightful finish past Colombian legend Higuita.

Team Roberto Carlos led 8-5 at the break, but the goals didn't stop there. The net bulged another nine times after the interval, helped in part by Real Madrid star Vinicius swapping teams for the second half.

The 21-year-old managed to score for both sides, with his goal for the Roberto Carlos XI helped in no small part by some questionable goalkeeping from Higuita.

Team Roberto Carlos ultimately secured a whirlwind 12-10 victory on a night where spectators at the home of David Beckham's Inter Miami certainly got their money's worth.

Team Ronaldinho XI: Higuita, Aldair, Rafa Marquez, Lugano, Ronaldinho, Dybala, Pogba, Matuidi, Rauw Alejandro, Vinicius Jr, Kluivert.

Team Roberto Carlos XI: Mimmo Conte, R. Carlos, Cafu, Militao, Vidal, Valderrama, Rivaldo, Alphonso Davies, Falcao, Nani, Trezeguet.
