While waiting for the draw for the Copa América, which will have the Argentine National Team as the top seed in group A, Conmebol organized a match of legends at the DRV PNK Stadium, home of Lionel Messi's Inter Miami, with outstanding figures of the soccer planet: Ronaldinho, Sergio Agüero, Javier Zanetti, Ivan Zamorano, Carlos Valderrama, Dida and Diego Godín, among others.

Also present was Usain Bolt, winner of eight Olympic gold medals in the 100 and 200 meters and the 4x100 relay. And there were several leaders. Among them, Claudio Chiqui Tapia, the president of the Argentine Football Association (AFA), who was the protagonist of a moment that generated laughter from those present at the Inter Miami stadium.

Tapia started as a starter and wore the '10' jersey of the "Tango", the team dressed in white, but lasted only seven minutes on the court and was replaced by Bolt. Yes, that's as bizarre as it sounds. Usain Bolt came on for Chiqui Tapia in a football match.

The change you never thought you'd see: Usaín Bolt replacing Chiqui Tapia 😂

What was the reason for your early departure? "Plantar fasciitis," said the former president of Barracas Central, now the highest authority in Argentine soccer, laughing and went to sit on the substitutes' bench.

SAMBA GOAL! 🔴

⚽ It had to be HIM: from the penalty spot, Ronaldinho made it 1-0 against Tango.

At the end of the first half, which lasted 40 minutes, a penalty awarded for a foul by Diego Godín on Ronaldinho put the "Samba" team, who wear red, in the lead. And it was the Brazilian footballer himself, world champion with the Canarinha in Korea-Japan 2002, who was in charge of breaking the zero.
