Basil AFoniThe former Barcelona man, Samuel Eto’o, came in at the second half to score twice and sets up former team mate, Lionel Messi to give the Barcelona class of 2006 the lead.

The striker’s first goal just like in the old days was set up by Messi and Eto’o had to wait on the goal-line for the defender to catch him before tapping in. Eto’o later on sets up Messi who scored Barcelona’s third on the night, converting a rare header from an Eto’o cross.

Eto’o’s cheeky antics were what had most people talking. The Cameroonian skipper, who is currently without a club, used the opportunity of the game to show that he still has to be at the top level.

However, Brazil superstar Ronaldinho was supposed to attend but didn’t end up making it to the game. Meanwhile, Edgar Davids bizarrely turned out to play for Barcelona on the night despite not being part of the 2004 side

The game featured the likes of Lionel Messi, Eidur Gudjohnsen, Benni McCarthy and Paulo Ferreira, ended 4-4, with Samuel Eto’o scoring twice and Deco getting the decisive strike for Porto having played for both sides.
