The fifth-ever Soccer Aid Match was held at Old Trafford on Sunday, and as usual, the biennial charity game to benefit UNICEF UK brought out the stars, the donations and the laughs.

Jose Mourinho managed the “Rest of the World” team featuring the likes of celebrities Gordon Ramsey and Jeremy Renner, and legends Edwin van der Sar, Allesandro del Piero and Andriy Shevchenko, while Sam Allardyce coached the England side, consisting of captain and event co-founder Jonathan Wilkes, David Seaman, Teddy Sheringham and Paul Ince, among others.

The highlight of the match was - surprise! - produced by Mourinho, when he suddenly ran onto the pitch to trip up English singer and songwriter Olly Murs:

You could totally see Mourinho pulling this off in a real match, couldn’t you?

There were also goals, of course. None were better than Clarence Seedorf’s second of the match, a vintage screamer that gave the Rest of the World team a 3-2 lead:

Seedorf later sealed his hat trick for the final tally of the match. In a lovely coincidence, the 4-2 scoreline for the ROW team mirrored the only number anyone really cared about: the £4.2million+ raised for UNICEF.
