Soccer Aid 2020 returns to Old Trafford
Next year’s game, due to take place during summer 2020, will return to ‘The Theatre of Dreams’ at Old Trafford – the original home of Soccer Aid for Unicef where the first match took place in 2006. It will be the sixth time the match will be played in Manchester, with Soccer Aid for Unicef 2019 having taken place at the iconic Stamford Bridge stadium in Chelsea.
The Soccer Aid World XI team were led to victory as they beat England 3-1 following a 2-2 draw in 90 minutes. Highlights of the match included F2 Freestyler, Jeremy Lynch, scoring a double in the first half – his second year in a row scoring for England. Usain Bolt scored the first goal for the Soccer Aid World XI just before half-time and Kem Cetinay followed up with an equaliser in the 84th minute. The game then went to a dramatic penalty shootout.
England’s Ben Shephard scored the first goal in the penalty shoot-out but a miss from Mark Wright and a save from Nicky Byrne denying Lee Mack left England wanting. F2 Freestyler Billy Wingrove, Locksmith and Kem Cetinay all scored past England goalie David Harewood, securing victory for the Soccer Aid World XI.
