This year's Soccer Aid has so far raised £4.2 million, as the charity event saw the Rest Of The World defeat England 4-2 at Manchester United's Old Trafford tonight (June 8). Almost 70,000 fans witnessed the World's Clarence Seedorf score a hat-trick and a chip from Nicky Byrne cancel out goals from England's Jamie Redknapp and Kevin Phillips.
The World were managed by José Mourinho and captained by Michael Sheen, while Sam Allardyce took charge of England with assistance from Robbie Williams.
By full time, ITV viewers had pledged over £2 million to UNICEF's work saving children's lives, which will be matched by the UK Government pound for pound and brings the total to £4.2 million so far. The final figure will be announced in due course.
David Bull, executive director of UNICEF UK, said: "Tonight at Soccer Aid we've shown how the power of sport can unite people to help save and change children's lives all over the world.
"As a result of the generosity of the British public, and the Aid Match from the UK Government, UNICEF will be able to get life-saving food, medicine and clean water to some of the world's most vulnerable children. We're incredibly grateful to everyone who donated tonight."
International development secretary Justine Greening added: "The incredible public response to Soccer Aid shows Britain at its best. We are backing the generosity of the British people by matching all donations to Soccer Aid pound for pound, helping UNICEF double its impact.
"That means even more women giving birth safely and more children getting life-saving vaccinations and nutritious food in some of the world's poorest countries."
Dermot O'Leary and Kirsty Gallacher hosted the match, which aired live on ITV.
The public can continue to donate to UNICEF by texting the word CHILD to 70333 to give £5. Lines are open until June 30.
