Several former Arsenal, Borussia Dortmund and Sparta Prague stars took to the field for Tomas Rosicky’s testimonial on Saturday – but it was the Little Mozart’s son who earned the biggest cheer of the day.
Rosicky was forced to retire through injury at the age of 37 in December, but he returned to Letna Stadium in Prague for a final farewell and was joined by several high-profile former team-mates.
He started for a World Team alongside Cesc Fabregas, Mathieu Flamini and Alex Song, with Jens Lehmann, Bacary Sagna, Gael Clichy, Robin van Persie, Alex Hleb and Kieran Gibbs also representing the Gunners.

Petr Cech started in goal for the Czech Team, with Rosicky switching sides for the second half and eventually giving the crowd what they wanted with a goal from the penalty spot.
It came in rather amusing fashion, with Rosicky being flagged for offside only for the assistant referee to conveniently change his mind.
Fabregas then bought Rosicky down in the area to give away the spotkick, which Lehmann duly saved in his attempt to spoil the fun before a retake was ordered which was this time put away.
The best moment, however, came late on when Rosicky’s young son entered the field and scored through the legs of Lehmann.
