The match

2020 Highlights

The Soccer Aid World XI FC team were led to victory for the second year running as they beat England 3-1 on penalties following a 1-1 draw in 90 minutes.

It was another enthralling contest between England, led by Olly Murs and the Soccer Aid World XI FC, captained by Mo Gilligan. England, co-managed by Manchester United and England legend Wayne Rooney and Sam Allardyce were up against Soccer Aid for Unicef stalwart Harry Redknapp and another former United and England star Bryan Robson.

After a close opening 45 minutes, the deadlock was broken early in the second half when Jeremy Lynch found Robbie Keane on the edge of the area. The Republic of Ireland’s all-time leading scorer curled a sublime effort in off the post to put his side one-nil up. England hit back quickly though. James Bay showed brilliant vision to pick out Yung Filly who controlled the cross before scoring past Ore Oduba. With the sides unable to be separated at the end of ninety minutes, the match went to a dramatic penalty shootout for the third year running.

With the shootout tied at 3-3, Love Island’s Kem Cetinay put World XI ahead. That left the sudden death penalty to Chunkz, whose sidefoot finish beat Oduba all ends up but flashed inches wide of the post.

What a fantastic night!

I’m so proud to have been involved in another fantastic Soccer Aid for Unicef and to have raised a record breaking amount of money. We missed the fans in the stadium but hopefully everyone watching at home enjoyed the show. There were plenty of moments to remember on the pitch and we’re all delighted to have, once again, been part of something very special.
