Lazio star Ciro Immobile has been handed the captain’s armband for the upcoming ‘Match for Peace’ charity match.
The 32-year-old Biancocelesti striker is no stranger to charity and community work, often taking the time to appear in charity events or visit the local children’s hospital in Rome. Immobile is a strong role model in the Lazio squad and is known for his willingness to help in positive initiatives.
As reported by LazioNews24, Immobile and former Brazil star Ronaldinho have been made captains for the upcoming ‘Match for Peace’ charity game, scheduled for 14th November.
The game will be held at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome and is organised as an inter-religious charity event by the international faith association Scholas Occurrentes. The accompanying slogan to this match is ‘We Play For Peace’.
Besides the two stars, a number of other footballing legends will feature like Hristo Stoichkov, Ciro Ferrara and Claudio Caniggia, setting up an exciting spectacle in the Italian capital.
