The match, which is raising money for worldwide children’s charity UNICEF, went to a penalty shootout after finishing 2-2.

Former Britain’s Got Talent star Jeremy Lynch put England XI 2-0 up in the first-half.

However, World XI captain and Olympic legend Usain Bolt pounced on an error from Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher to make it 2-1 just before the break.

And a late strike from Love Island 2017 winner Kem Cetinay ensured the game went to a dreaded spot-kick.


World XI goalkeeper and Westlife’s Nicky Byrne turned out to be the hero as he saved penalties to deny celebrity fitness coach Joe Wicks and comedian Lee Mack, while TOWIE star Mark Wright put his effort from twelve yards wide.

It was a memorable evening at Stamford Bridge all in aid of a great cause and below are a selection of the best bits from Soccer Aid 2019.
