England 2 - 4 Rest of the World

Last night saw a blistering Soccer Aid showdown take place between England and the Rest of the World as the sporting biennial returned to our televisions for the fifth time.

After a spirited performance from both teams, the Rest of the World managed to pip their hosts to the post, securing a 4-2 win and their second Soccer Aid victory in front of a crowd of 70ꯠ.

Managed by Jos√© Mourinho, the winners were captained by Michael Sheen, taking on Sam Allardyce’s England side with assistance from our Robbie.

At the final whistle, viewers had pledged over £2 million to UNICEF’s vital work saving children’s lives, which will be matched pound-for-pound by the UK government, bringing the total to a staggering £4.2 million so far.

As Robbie said himself on Twitter, a huge thanks goes to everyone who has supported Soccer Aid this year. Watch a tearful Robbie celebrating below and roll on 2016!
