Watch Eric Cantona ping a rugby ball onto the crossbar in novelty game

Class is permanent.

MARSEILLE TOOK ON Toulon in a unique charity match at the Stade Mayol this evening.

A game of half-football, half-rugby saw the Ligue 1 side win 5-4 in their own sport before their Top 14 opponents clinched a 36-35 victory.

Special guest referee on the night was none other than Eric Cantona, who typically stole the show with a trick-shot – using a rugby ball.

Watch the former Manchester United and France striker line up a penalty and chip it effortlessly onto the crossbar.

Still got it.
