Robbie leads England to victory in Soccer Aid

Monday May 28, 2012

Robbie Williams' England side beat a team of Hollywood A-listers and football legends 3-1 in the fourth Soccer Aid at Manchester's Old Trafford stadium.

Two teams of celebrities, including actors Will Ferrell, Edward Norton and Michael Sheen, clashed in the game which raised more than £4 million for Unicef.

The Soccer Aid event saw an England side, led by Take That's Robbie, take on a Rest of the World team.

Before the game Soccer Aid had raised more than £6.5 million through ticket sales and donations, with all profits going to Unicef's work helping children across the world.

And now the Government has pledged to match all the cash raised through donations.

Players on the England team included comedians John Bishop and Paddy McGuinness, singers Olly Murs and Mark Owen, with Robbie as team captain.
