Olympic hero Usain Bolt has announced on social media that they will go head-to-head for the eagerly anticipated Soccer Aid for Unicef match, as part of a new look charity campaign for Unicef UK and ITV, ending speculations that he was joining the ABSA Premiership.
Usain’s Soccer Aid World XI will go up against global popstar Robbie Williams’ England with competing teams made up of A-list stars and footballing legends.
The international friendly match will take place at Old Trafford on Sunday 10 June, just four days before the FIFA World Cup in Russia begins.
Soccer Aid for Unicef is the original England V Soccer Aid World XI charity match. It has previously featured A-list stars such as Will Ferrell, Woody Harrelson, Mike Myers and Niall Horan, plus footballing royalty including Maradona, Zinedine Zidane, Luis Figo and Ronaldinho.
