This is Fabio Cannavaro.
He is the former Italy captain and FIFA World Player of the Year and he was in town as Tiger Street Football Ambassador.

Thanks to Tiger for the invitation to this unforgetable opportunity to meet Fabio Cannavaro in person and getting his autograph.I’m sure Fred had his fun, check out his jersey.
