Other prominent Italians in the list of players set to take field on Tuesday at the the Stade de Suisse include former AC Milan midfielder Gennaro Gattuso as well as 2002 Guerin d'Oro winner Christian Vieri.

Former Arsenal trio Freddie Ljungberg , Robert Pires and Patrick Vieira have also made the cut and are among the 32 players who have confirmed their participation in the match.

The star studded side will be coached by former Chelsea manager Ruud Gullit who is overwhelmed at the prospect of being in charge of a team comprised of some of the best players to ever grace the game.

"It is a privilege and a challenge to steer a team with such great world football names," said the Dutch international.

"We would like to count on a massive public presence to see us playing and help us support the people of the Philippines.”
