AC Milan don't do fucking about.
With club football taking a much-needed breather during international week, Liverpool's charitable organisation - the LFC Foundation - have taken the opportunity to use the free Saturday at Anfield to play host to what would have always been a glamorous exhibition game between the Reds and Italian giants AC Milan.
Scouse fans will be excited to see the likes of Sami Hypia, Jamie Carragher, Robbie Fowler and, of course Steven Gerrard.
But what they couldn't have expected to see was this.

Mary mother of God, now that is a line up!
World Cup winners galore, and only Paolo Maldini sitting on the bench.
The game is, of course, a rematch between the 2005 Champions League final participants, with no fewer than 18 players who were in Istanbul on that famous evening gracing the Anfield turf this afternoon.

The game will be broadcast live on LFC TV from 3 p.m. free of charge, with the club channel giving viewers the opportunity to trial this weekend.
What more could you want? The chance to potentially see a 60-year-old John Aldridge against Paolo Maldini is a gift that money simply cannot buy.
