Williams Accuses Uk Press Of Bigotry

British singer ROBBIE WILLIAMS refused to take part in a charity soccer match against Germany - because the UK press revel in slamming the European country. The ANGELS hitmaker is captaining the England team at this month's (MAY06) Soccer Aid match to benefit the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF), for which he is ambassador. But he has categorically refused to be a part of any match which might incite the traditional berating of Germany and parody their involvement in the World Wars. He says, "I couldn't play in a game England versus Germany, because the press in England can't control themselves when it comes to bigotry. And I happen to love Germany. "And I sell a lot of records there, being honest - all three of those things. And I wouldn't want to be part of anything that would darken their door." Williams will play the charity game in Manchester, England on 27 May (06) with a team comprised of celebrities representing the rest of the world, captained by chef GORDON RAMSAY.
