New FIFA president Gianni Infantino has organised a football match for his first day in office to try to deflect away from previous scandals.

He played alongside former stars including Deco, Clarence Seedorf and Robert Pires.

Infantino was voted in on Friday and said the match is symbolic of the fact that the players and supporters are what matters most in football, not the world governing body.
