Family guys help raise £4m for children’s charity

Dads join together for Soccer Aid and raise millions for Unicef


Dad-to-be Robbie Williams pulled out all the stops in the heat yesterday as his England side beat a team of Hollywood A-listers 3-1 to raise more than £4m for children’s charity Unicef.


Fellow dad-to-be Mark Owen was also on Robbie’s team, that included dad-of-two David Seaman in goal.

Robbie’s team were victorious against a rest of the world team that included well-known dads John Bishop, comedy actor Mike Myers, 47, who became a father for the first time last year, Will Ferrell, who has three sons, and dad-of-four Gordon Ramsey, who unfortunately was stretchered off after a collision with Teddy Sheringham. Teddy has a grown-up son, Charlie, who’s also a professional footballer.

Before the game even started, the event had raised a further £6.5m in ticket sales and donations. The Government has pledged to match all of the cash raised through donations.

Coleen and Wayne Rooney were among the 67,000 fans at Old Trafford yesterday to celebrate the third Soccer Aid charity success.

Coleen Rooney tweeted the day before that she’d been enjoying fun in the garden with Kai. “Toys and bubbles everywhere & the Disney soundtracks are blasting. Me and Kai dancing around to under the sea!”

Robbie recently let slip that he and wife Ayda were expecting a girl.
