ENGLAND VS THE SOCCER AID WORLD XI
On Sunday 16 June, Soccer Aid for Unicef took place at Chelsea’s Stamford Bridge. Over £6.8 million was raised on the night as a star-studded lineup of football legends and celebrities battled it out on the pitch so that more children can grow up happy, healthy and able to play.
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.
