To benefit UNICEF a all-star Soccer Aid match was held at Manchester United’s Old Trafford on Sunday. You know how these all-star sports event are, usually very light and easy. Apparently that’s not what happened on Sunday. The English team was composed of: Robbie Williams, Mark Owen, Aston Merrygold, Olly Murs and Marvin Humes. Don’t feel bad if you don’t know any of the people on the English team, I didn’t either.
They faced off against the world team that included: Will Ferell, Gordon Ramsay (I’m not sure why he didn’t make the English team), Mike Myers, Gerard Butler, Edward Norton, James McAvoy, Woody Harrelson and Michael Sheen.
Apparently after a tackle from former pro soccer player, Teddy Sheringham, Ramsey had to be air lifted off the field. He is sore but fine now. At least it teaches us that Ramsey is not immune from human pain, you wouldn’t know that from “Hell’s Kitchen.”
Later on in the game Ferrell limped off the field. As you would expect the English team won against a bunch of movie stars and one reality chef. They raised more than $6.4 million for UNICEF.
