‘The impossible match’

Athletic Bilbao played a fixture dubbed the impossible match as they said farewell to club legend Joseba Etxeberria. The La Liga side faced a team of 200 local youngsters – 100 in each half – in front of 20,000 fans at San Mames.

The kids made the most of their numerical advantage to take the lead, but eventually the pros triumphed 5-3. The video above shows Etxeberria bagging his final goal for the club, and a scrappy effort it was!
