    Idris Elba will be assisting Arsene Wenger and Robbie Keane in coaching the Rest of the World XI, with the summer sun beating down I am not sure he will be wearing his recognisable wool trench coat.

    It makes one hell of a trio on the touchline, perish the thought of a half-time tongue lashing by these three.

    The visitors have some real world-class talent on their team tonight, some of whom would still get into to football teams throughout Europe.

    Both sides show a mix of ex-footballing talent and a who's who of the showbiz world.

    A real chance for those who take the path of a career as hit musicians, actors and athletes rather than their preferred path of League Two footballers.

    Welcome to Soccer Aid 2022

    The original brainchild of Robbie Williams to raise money for Unicef, Soccer Aid has snowballed to be become a huge annual event rather than the bi-annual event that it was first intended to be.

    An England XI will take on a Rest of the World XI at West Ham Utd's London Stadium, the England side being managed by a due of Harry Redknapp and David Seaman.

    The Rest of the World XI will be managed by a partnership of Arsene Wenger and Robbie Keane.

    The ex-Arsenal manager Wenger knows a fair bit about managing teams in London after his dominant spell with The Gunners between 1996-2018.

    Both sides will have a mixture of ex-footballers and celebrities looking to put on a show for the crowds in order to raise more money for Unicef.

    This is the 11th year the charity football match has taken place and this year every donation, up to a maximum of £4m, will be matched by The Power of Nutrition.

    Intended to help support the health and nutrition of children around the world, this offers those who donate the chance to make double the difference in changing peoples' lives.
