Thank you to the organisers of the Indian Futsal League for creating a league which allows us to see Ronaldinho at his skilful best.
The Barcelona legend scored five goals – including a first-half hat-trick – as his Goa team beat Paul Scholes’ Bengaluru 7-2.
Scroll down to watch the Samba king delight the Indian crowd.
The futsal league has taken off in a similar manner to MLS by attracting players beyond their peak years but still capable of putting on a show.
Ryan Giggs, Hernan Crespo, Michel Salgado and Falcao (no, not that one) have all made appearances in the league, while Portuguese hero Luis Figo is the president.
