The two legends went head-to-head on UEFA Champions League Final day in a pair of fun challenges with a Welsh twist, presented by Nissan

Deco and Michel Salgado both know their way around a football pitch. 

The two UEFA Champions League legends claimed two winner's medals apiece - one each at Porto and Barcelona for Deco, and two at Real Madrid for Salgado. 

But skills on a pitch are one thing. Applying those skills to a rugby ball and tackling the humorous parts of the Welsh language are another entirely.

So how would they fare? Goal, in conjunction with Nissan, found out. on Saturday.

Ahead of the UEFA Champions League Final in Cardiff on Saturday, we put Deco and Salgado through the two challenges. 

Rugby ball keepy-uppy was first, with the winner decided by the best score across three attempts.
