Zinedine Zidane and Kaka led an All-Star side against a team of current and former Benfica players on Monday, with proceeds from the United Nations charity game going to victims of the Haiti earthquake.

UN goodwill ambassador Zidane and Real Madrid's Kaka were joined by Luis Figo, Rui Costa, Thierry Henry, Pavel Nedved, Edgar Davids and India football skipper Bhaichung Bhutia at Benfica's Luz Stadium.

"By coming to the stadium people have done a great thing. I am very happy we can do something to help," said former France playmaker Zidane after the 3-3 draw. "This is a good cause, that's why there are so many players here," said Bayern Munich coach Louis van Gaal who was in charge of the All-Star team. Kaka put the All-Star ahead before Nuno Gomes struck twice for the home side. Zidane set up the equaliser for Robert Pires only for Eder Luis to restore Benfica's lead in the 60th minute. Frenchman Christophe Dugarry scored the last in the 85th minute.
