More than £13million was raised from the charity fixture in aid of Unicef with teams featuring a mix of celebrities and sports icons including former Man United and City players. 

Shaun Wright-Phillips, Gary Neville, Paul Scholes and Wayne Rooney and Lionesses legend Fara Williams were among the former Prem players representing England. 

And Patrice Evra and Nigel De Jong were among the stars on a World XI competing in Soccer Aid which celebrates its tenth anniversary this year.

Before the game, England saw two of their players pull out.

TV presenter Ronan Kemp withdrew due to a positive coronavirus test and Top Gear’s Paddy McGuiness pulled out after suffering an injury. 

Many of the best moments of the clash occurred in the second half with all three goals netted during this period.

Former Love Island star Cetinay buried his first beating The Masked Singer Joel Dommett in goal. 

And Kem registered his brace in the 73rd minute before Lee Mack finally got his long-awaited Soccer Aid after missing dozens of opportunities in previous fixtures.
