Kolkata: Former Colombian goalkeeper Rene Higuita on Thursday promised to give "one of his best shows" in a veterans' exhibition game involving former Brazilian world cuppers and a local side two days later.

Known as much for scorpion kicks as also his crazy side during his playing days, Higuita was all praise for the Salt Lake stadium which would be the venue for the match.

"It is a very good stadium. The turf is very good. Grass is very costly to maintain so world over grounds are turning into synthetic grass. I hope there would be a good game on Saturday," Higuita said after inspecting the venue.
