Soccer Aid 2019

Recommended Posts

It was the match that pitted former Chelsea team-mates John Terry and Didier Drogba against each other at Stamford Bridge, while quadruple Olympic champion Mo Farah took on One Direction singer Niall Horan.

But the plaudits should go to Brazil's Roberto Carlos, who was as classy as ever as the Rest of the World beat England in Unicef's Soccer Aid 2019.

England, managed by ITV presenter Susanna Reid and former England manager Sam Allardyce, stormed into a two-goal lead via a double from freestyle footballer Jeremy Lynch.

Eight-time Olympic gold medallist Usain Bolt pulled one back for ITV presenter Piers Morgan and former football manager Harry Redknapp's side just before half-time and Love Island 2017's Kem Cetinay equalised late on before RoW won on penalties.

This year's edition of the event, which was established by singer Robbie Williams and actor Jonathan Wilkes in 2006, has so far raised more than £6m.

So, apart from Manchester United legend Eric Cantona allegedly snubbing Piers Morgan's selfie request, TOWIE actor Mark Wright, fitness coach Joe Wicks and comedian Lee Mack all missing penalties and Line of Duty's Martin Compston swapping police acronyms and waistcoats for a football kit, what were the big talking points?
