On Sunday, I attended Soccer Aid at Old Trafford as a guest of ITV, an event organised by Robbie Williams, to raise money for the charity UNICEF, the World’s leading children’s organisation, which saw an England of legends and celebrities lose on penalties to a Rest of the World team which contained three times World player of the year Zinedine Zidane and Luis Figo.
It was a great event, and I thoroughly enjoyed the game. There were a few good performances from the celebrities, particularly England players Jonathan Wilkes and Ralph Little who are both good footballers. Others were less talented – notably Mike Myers (Austin Powers & Waynes World) and Woody Harrelson, who despite scoring the winning penalty, did not look at home on the pitch. I hope that their performances rather than the result is a sign of things to come on Saturday!
