Who’s in the Soccer Aid 2018 line-up?
Robbie Williams will head up the England Team and Olympian Usain Bolt will be captain of the World XI Team.
They will compete against each other with teams made up of A-list stars and footballing legends.
Robbie Williams is a singer famed for being part of Take That.
In 2006, Robbie – who is Unicef UK Ambassador – and his best mate Jonathan Wilkes came up with the idea of Soccer Aid.
Robbie has captained the England team ever since.
Unicef Usain Bolt has signed up as captain of the World XI Team
Usain is one of the most famous athletes in the world – even though he announced his retirement from athletics last year.
The 31-year-old sprinter won eight Olympic gold medals, is an eleven-time World Champion and broke both the 100m and 200m sprint world records multiple times
On February 27 2018 Usain announced he would be playing for Soccer Aid, after weeks of teasing that he had signed to a team.

Gordon Ramsay has announced on social media that he will be joining Usain Bolt, Robbie Williams and more for Soccer Aid 2018.
The chef has previously played on the Soccer Aid pitch and hopes to reclaim his title.
He suffered an injury to his Achilles tendon when he tackled ex-footballer Teddy Sherringham back in 2012.
Who else is playing?
The full line-up is yet to be release, but over the coming weeks, the England V Soccer Aid World XI team sheets will see some of football’s biggest legends and celebrities join the line-ups.
Soccer Aid has previously featured A-list stars such as Will Ferrell, Woody Harrelson, Mike Myers and Niall Horan, plus footballing royalty including Maradona, Zinedine Zidane, Luis Figo and Ronaldinho.
When is Soccer Aid? And how do I get a ticket?
Soccer Aid is on June 10, 2018 and will be held at Old Trafford in Manchester.
Tickets are on sale now and are priced between £10 and £50.
They are available at www.manutd.com/socceraid or by calling 0161 444 2018
The match will be screened on ITV – a time is yet to be confirmed.
What does the money raised from Soccer Aid go towards?
All public donations to Soccer Aid will go towards Unicef’s work protecting children in the UK and globally.
An incredible £24 million has already been raised through the event over the last 12 years.
South African Premier Division leaders Mamelodi Sundowns teased his arrival on Twitter on Monday.
But the move looks to have been a PR stunt to get momentum behind Soccer Aid – at least it was for a good cause.
