Their team – Bull in the Barne Utd – won and now they have a superstar.

But software engineer Liam may not make the team as he plays in the same position as the former Real Madrid star, 48.

But the age of the 29-year-old is still on his side, and he goes to the gym in the hope of making it to the selection.

World Cup winner Carlos, accustomed to playing in stadiums like the 81,000-seat Santiago Bernabéu, will find himself on a muddy parkfield in Shropshire, in the Greenhouse Shrewsbury & District Sunday Football League Division One.

Liam said: “It’s a completely different game.

“The fields are filled with balls, the linesmen are substitutes or fans, and despite our best efforts, we are definitely not world class players.

“Arguments, fights and a lot of fouls are common.

“I’m sure there are a few opposing players who want to make a mark on him.”

Carlos hasn’t played professionally in six years and Liam is hoping there’s still room for both of them on the field.

He said: “Without a doubt, he will be a fantastic asset to the team.

“In order to have this level of experience and technical ability, I will strive to play with him as often as possible, knowing that if I make this fast run, he will be able to find me.

“I’ll be pleased if we can exchange quality interactions on the wing and set up – or dare I say a goal in a dream scenario – to score a goal at the end.”

“HE owes me”

Liam’s team is named after his local drunk, and he hopes to invite Carlos there for a few post-match chills.

He joked, “His pockets are deeper than mine, but I’ll get him one to tell him he owes me.”

The match date has not yet been confirmed.

The eBay draw also featured English lioness Eni Aluko, 35, paired with Sussex Sunday League team Pevensey and Westham FC for a one-off game.

Broadcaster Chris Kamara will provide commentary for both games.

Proceeds from the eBay giveaway will go to the Football Beyond Borders charity.
