Now I’m not a massive football fan and, as is the norm with women, I don’t understand the offside rule or even how many players are in each team, but in the name of good fun I bought tickets for this year’s event and off I went, and I must say it was a brilliant match to watch.
Slyly, I was rooting for the Rest of the World to win, mostly because I knew who more of them were, and the fact the Gerard Butler was playing for them may have helped a little bit, but everyone was in good spirits and cheered for both sides.
One thing I cannot believe is that Sergio Pizzorno, guy from Kasabian, scored the first and only goal for ROW.
He looked so gangly and unlike a footballer that he was the last person I expected to score. Another annoyance was Aston Merrygold, he just showboated throughout the entire game, with fancy footwork whenever he got the ball, but never actually kept the ball long enough to score a goal.
He was also the first one to take his top off once the match had finished, obviously. Apart from that, it was a pleasure to be part of the experience, everyone was jolly and light-hearted and the best thing to come from it was that the match raised £4m for UNICEF.
Brilliant work from everyone involved and I actually can’t wait for next year.
