With the excitement building for the return of the Premier League, we're certain that Old Trafford is going to see some incredible football this year as Manchester United go toe-to-toe with the best teams in England.

Aside from this, the Theatre of Dreams is also going to see some incredible players grace its hallowed turf.

Granted, we're not quite sure if Dermot Kennedy would be able to give Bruno Fernandes a run for his money, but we'd like to find out!

On a more serious note, Soccer Aid for Unicef, the biggest charity football match in the calendar, is back this weekend and it will take place at Old Trafford.

The organisers have pulled out all the stops to make sure the match can go ahead and they've also lined up a few very interesting faces from the world of football, film, and TV to take part.

As usual, it's going to be England - managed by Wayne Rooney, Sam Allardyce, and The Chase's Bradley Walsh - taking on a World XI who will be managed by Harry Redknapp, Bryan Robson, and Vic Bettinelli.

In terms of the World XI, Ireland is well supported with Shay Given, Robbie Keane, and Dermot Kennedy all featuring.


We can just see Keane getting on the end of a through-ball from former Crumlin United midfielder Dermot Kennedy and finishing with aplomb!

Elsewhere, the World XI has some strength to it with Michael Essien, Patrice Evra, Darren Fletcher, Claude Makelele, Mikael Silvestre and Yaya Toure all featuring alongside the likes of Jason Manford, Serge Pizzorno, and Iain Stirling.

As for England, they'll also have a decent side with the newly-retired Gareth Barry playing alongside Ashley Cole, David James, Joe Cole, Michael Owen, Andy Cole, and Wes Brown. We'll be very surprised if Rooney doesn't lace up his boots too.


We're also expecting to see good things from the likes of Theon Greyjoy - known as Alfie Allen to his parents - James Bay, John Bishop, and Joe Wicks - he should be the fittest player on the park.

Coverage starts at 6:30pm on Sunday, September 6 and the match will be shown on ITV and UTV.

Donations to the cause can be made here.
