PHIL Neville has been unveiled as one of five former England stars taking part in this year's Soccer Aid match.

The Bury football legend was announced by Robbie Williams on St George's Day as one of the latest names to join his squad for the charity match on June 10 at Old Trafford.

The team also includes David Seaman, Danny Murphy, Jamie Redknapp and Robbie Fowler, who with nearly 200 England caps between them should provide stiff competition fro Usain Bolt's Soccer Aid World XI.

Former Manchester United star Mr Neville said: “This is going to be the best game yet.

"The England team looks really strong.

"The most important result is how much we raise, something that will be helped massively following the government’s decision to match every pound you donate with another pound."

Mr Neville and the other five stars will play alongside an already impressive line-up of celebrities and former footballers, including: Sir Mo Farah, Gordon Ramsay, Olly Murs, Mark Wright, Brendan Cole, Joe Wicks, Clarence Seedorf, Robert Pirès, Yaya Tourè, Jaap Stam, Patrick Kluivert, Edwin van der Sar and Kevin Pietersen.

The international friendly match was launched in 2006 by pop star and Unicef UK Ambassador Robbie Williams and Jonathan Wilkes.

Every pound that is donated to the children's development charity by the public will be matched by the government through its UK Aid Match helping to support more children in need around the world.

So far over £24 million has been raised by Soccer Aid over the last 12 years.

International Development Secretary, Penny Mordaunt, said: "We are excited to be involved once again this year in what promises to be the biggest Soccer Aid for Unicef to date.

"The UK Government will match public donations pound-for-pound, meaning that, together, we can double the difference for children around the world."

Tickets priced between £10 and £50 for the match are available at or by calling 0161 444 2018.
