On Thursday night, 08 November, the Inter Milan youth team will play a commemorative friendly against Sheffield F.C, who are the oldest club team in the world. The club celebrates their 150th anniversary this year, and the kick-off is 19:45 GMT at Bramall Lane.
Interestingly, one of the protagonists of last year’s World Cup final, Marco Materazzi, made the trip to England and will appear with the Internazionale Primavera. It says a great deal about a very rich and celebrated professional who decided to pay tribute to world football history. Materazzi, a former Everton player, has been injured since August.
According to the International Herald Tribune, Pelé will also be on hand to lend his support for this momentous occasion.
In football, all roads lead to Sheffield F.C.
