Soccer Aid 2010: Team Meeting
Robbie with some of Soccer Aid's, stars including Michael Sheen, James Corden and Woody Harrelson, ahead of the gruelling few days of training preparing them for the big game. Meeting for the first time, the two squads of players gathered for a bit of pre-match banter with team captains Robbie and Michael Sheen posing for a few snaps.
"I am so excited that Soccer Aid is back," said Robbie, "and at Old Trafford once again. I have such amazing memories of my last game.” “It will be a great time for football, with World Cup fever at boiling point, and there's never been a better time for us to show our support for UNICEF given the recent tragedies affecting children around the world. I hope the whole country will join me and support this fantastic event."
Welshman Sheen, star of The Damned United in which he played legendary football manager Brian Clough, revealed a few cunning tactics of his own in the hope to outsmart Robbie and the England boys, saying he aims to "put the ball in the opposition’s goal as many times as possible!" Easier said than done, Michael!
