A charity match hosted by the Stade “Veldorm” in France brought to mind some of the creativity of retired football stars, but it showed others in a shocking physical and physical condition, led by the player Samir Nasri.
The show match brought together a team of veteran players from French Marseille, and another representative of “UNICEF”, which included a group of stars from other sports, such as judo, tennis and Formula One, who hold French citizenship.
At the top of Marseille’s list was the Ivorian star Didier Drogba, whose foundation cooperated with the French club to organize this match, in order to raise funds to facilitate access to education for the children of Ivory Coast.

The match witnessed a wonderful festive atmosphere, and was attended by funny moments and distinguished goals, with which the fans of “Veldrome”, who attended in support of charitable work and helping children in Ivory Coast, interacted.
Despite his retirement in November 2018, Drogba appeared remarkably, in a great physical condition, and gave the audience some of his amazing artistic glimpses, as he showed strong and focused shots, bringing to mind the great level of the Ivorian “elephant”, who proved that he did not lose His scoring ability yet.
Unlike Dorgba, Samir Nasri appeared in a very shocking way, and he announced his retirement only a few days ago, specifically on September 26, 2021.
Nasri, the former player of Marseille, Manchester City, Arsenal, Seville, Antalya Sport, West Ham and Anderlecht, sparked ridicule on social media, after signs of obesity appeared on his body excessively.

European media did not miss the opportunity to talk about the Nasri scene, as a newspaper described it MARK Spanish as “terrifying”.
The Spanish newspaper pointed out that it is rare for a player to lose his physical abilities quickly after his retirement, as happened with Nasri.
It is noteworthy that Samir Nasri did not play football for about a year, before he announced his retirement from playing about two weeks ago.
Nasri sparkled with Manchester City in particular, when he won the English Premier League title on two occasions, in addition to the FA Cup once, and the same in the Charity Shield Cup.
In 2004, he led his country to winning the European Under-17 Championship, and was named France’s Player of the Year in 2010.
