Soccer Aid is back for 2024 with the annual charity football match once again featuring a whole host of celebrities and former footballers in order to raise money for charity.

The event was created by singer Robbie Williams back in 2006 in order to raise money for the children's charity UNICEF.

Every year an England XI takes on a World XI and the 2023 match saw an incredible £14.6 million raised.

After last year's 4-2 victory, World XI have emerged victorious in the previous five matches so England will be hoping to finally end that losing run.
