Soccer AidCricketer Brian Lara, retired Swedish footballer Henrik Larsson, boxer Joe Calzaghe and Manchester United’s Ryan Giggs lined up together on Saturday as Rest of the World teammates to take part in the Robbie Williams-organized UNICEF Soccer Aid charity match at Old Trafford.

The footy festivities had all the fixins – including manbag arrivals, bromantic goal celebrations and an exciting penalty shoot-out. Aside from Luis Figo’s full head of lush, silky hair, we’re pleased to see the amount of men past their prime who are letting their hair age naturally.

Our SMOTM (sexiest Man of the Match)? It was a tough, three-way tie between Larsson, Giggs and Redknapp.

  3. It was a really entertaining game (more than the United Relief one). So much fun! Shearer to Sheringham was a class goal (I felt like I was in a time warp!). Good job, everyone at Soccer Aid!

    How can you leave Sami Hyypia out of the Sexiest Man of the Match contenders?! He is the perfect man!

    The SMOTM Was Ryan Giggs.

    Zidane, Olly, Redknapp, Nicky Byrne & Larsson Looked Fit.

    Olly Murs Played Really Well, & I Also Think That The Celebrity England Goalkeeper Made Some Really Good Saves He Should Be Englands Number 1 :D (: x
