Chelsea striker Didier Drogba, Germany captain Michael Ballack and Liverpool's England midfielder Steven Gerrard are amongst the stars set to play a charity match in Munich next week to help raise money for Africa.

A selection of the world's top players will face off in the July 12 benefit match at Bayern Munich's Allianz Arena to raise money for the charity Goal4Africa.

The project plans to raising funds for football development and educational programmes throughout the African continent with fans making a donation for each goal scored by their favourite player.

Barcelona's Samuel Eto'o and Italian World Cup winner Gennaro Gattuso will also be in Munich for the match.

The idea is to help the continent prepare for the 2010 World Cup in South Africa and the event will also feature a concert by reggae band UB40.
