Harry Redknapp and Piers Morgan against Sam Allardyce and Susanna Reid. Mo Farah against Usain Bolt. John Terry against Robbie Keane. The bizarre but beneficial contest that is Soccer Aid is back once again, delivering its consistently comical highlights.
Soccer Aid is a fundraiser for UNICEF who help protect the world's most vulnerable children, working to ensure child rights and providing health care. Over the past 13 years it has raised £30miillion for the charity.
This year's game took place in Stanford Bridge. It didn't take long for Jamie Carragher to be exposed by sprinter turned striker Usain Bolt, who used his strength more than his speed to swat aside the former Liverpool man and cooly finish past David Seaman.
There's no doubt a brutal Monday Night football post-mortem awaits Carragher's efforts to defend here.
As a whole, the exercise is entertaining as well as immensely worthwhile. There's something endearing about watching Dermot O'Leary try to understand James Nesbitt or Piers Morgan try to identify who sprayed him with water. What it's all about.
