Last year, Soccer Aid raised more than £15 million for UNICEF, who were first founded in 1946. They work in more than 190 countries, providing humanitarian and developmental aid to children worldwide.

Soccer Aid was first launched in 2006. It initially took place every two years but since 2018, it has been held every year. The format sees England face off against a team made up of stars from around the globe.

The Rest of the World currently hold a 6-5 lead over England, and have won the last four in a row, with three of those last four being won on penalties. Before that, they had only won two matches.
