Didier Drogba, Dwight Yorke and Emile Heskey will be lacing up their boots for a charity match to support those affected by wildfires in Australia.

Former Chelsea striker Drogba is among a dozen internationals taking part in the #FootballForFires match at Sydney's ANZ Stadium on 23 May.

Devastating fires have been burning since September and have killed more than two dozen people, destroyed more than 2,000 homes and led to the evacuation of thousands of people.

Other names announced for the game include World Cup winner David Trezeguet, ex-Manchester United midfielder Ji-sung Park and former Sunderland and Leeds striker Michael Bridges.

Tore Andre Flo, Mark Bosnich, Dario Simic and Claudio Marchisio will also play, the Football Federation of Australia said.

Proceeds from the match will be spent improving football clubs and facilities in fire-affected areas across Australia.
