In the lead up to the World Cup 2006 coverage from Germany, Soccer Aid is a special football match. It features World Cup legends and top celebrities merging into two teams, for an England vs The Rest of The World game in aid of the charity UNICEF and all of its associates. Each squad consists of six footballing legends and ten celebrities from various backgrounds. Over 5 days, we will watch as the two teams prepare for the biggest game of most of their lives. Who will win, you'll have to watch to find out but the main reason for this event is to raise bundles of money for UNICEF.
