Soccer Aid is an annual charity football match set up to raise money for the charity UNICEF. Many famous musicians, actors and veteran footballers participate in the match every year, and this year the two teams were captained by Robbie Williams and Michael Sheen, with Williams’ team claiming a 3-1 victory.

Football fans who donated money to Soccer Aid helped raise £4 million for UNICEF, a charity that protects the rights of young people. In the six years that Soccer Aid has been running, it has raised £7 million to help children around the world.

Even though the game is over, you can still donate money by clicking on the link below:
