AFTER Fabio Cannavaro and Dennis Wise, global superstar Cristiano Ronaldo is being eyed to grace next year’s edition of Clear Dream Match.
In a short chat with Spin.ph after the second staging of the event on Saturday night, Clear brand manager Drew Copuyoc expressed eagerness to bring over the Real Madrid striker regarded as one of the best footballers in the world today.
The Portuguese striker happens to be the global endorser of Clear.
“We’re very open about it. We’ll ask the fans what they want. And let’s see who Clear Dream Match will bring next year, but it’s not yet sure,” said Copuyoc.

This year, local endorsers James and Phil Younghusband were given the chance to pick the international football stars to take part in the event.
Aside from Ronaldo, Formula One driver Kimi Raikkonen is the other international athlete who endorses Clear, according to Copuyoc.
Copuyoc said holding a third edition of the charity all-star game depends on the success of Saturday’s event.
All signs, though, are encouraging as Cannavaro and Wise were warmly welcomed by football fans in the match that was well-attended despite the heavy rains on match day.
“We’re very happy with the reception despite the bad weather,” the 24-year-old Copuyoc said.
Cannavaro, the former Fifa World Player of the Year who skippered Italy to the 2006 World Cup title, helped James Younghusband and his team get even with Phil Younghusband’s team featuring Wise, the Chelsea icon, by way of a 4-1 victory.
