Who’s playing Soccer Aid 2021? Find out the full star lineup including Usain Bolt, Paddy McGuinness and Wayne Rooney

Soccer Aid is back for the 10th time following a hiatus last year, having secured Gary Neville, Paul Scholes, Fara Williams and England’s all-time top scorer Wayne Rooney for this year’s squad.

Set up by singer and football fanatic Robbie Williams back in 2006, the charity match is organised in aid of UNICEF

The event sees professionals and celebrities competing alongside one another in an 11-a-side match between England and a team representing the rest of the world.

Talking about the game, Rooney said: “Pulling on an England shirt is always special, so I’m absolutely delighted to be doing that again in Soccer Aid for UNICEF this September.

“Managing the England team last year was great but being around the players made me want to lace up the boots again – now I’ve got that chance, one last time.
