Ariel Ortega provides assist for son in farewell match, bursts into tears | inside World Soccer

Ariel Ortega played his farewell match at the Monumental Stadium on Saturday, but it was his son who stole the show.

The 39-year-old, who won seven titles while playing for River Plate, played a half each for an Ortega XI and a River Plate XI.

The likes of Romário, Juan Sebastián Verón, Javier Saviola, Roberto Ayala, and Enzo Francescoli all appeared, but it was Ortega's 12-year-old son, Tomas, who put the famous names in the shade.

Tomas finished with aplomb from close range after being played through by his dad, who burst into tears amid the subsequent celebrations.
