“For Soccer Aid’s 10th anniversary, it is a great honour that Robbie Williams has asked me to manage the Rest of the World XI and I’m looking forward to helping them defend their title,” he said.
Previous Soccer Aid matches were held at Wembley in 2008 and at Old Trafford in 2006, 2010, 2012 and 2014, raising over £17 million in total for Unicef.
