Kasabian's Serge Joins The Rest Of The World For Soccer Aid 2012


Kasabian guitarist Sergio Pizzorno joins the Rest of the World squad for Soccer Aid 2012, along with funny men Will Ferrell ('Anchorman'), Mike Myers ('Austin Powers') and Patrick Kielty; actors Gerard Butler ('300') and James Mcavoy ('Atonement'); and the brutally honest TV chef Gordon Ramsay. The ROTW team will be captained by Michael Sheen ('The Queen') and managed by Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish. They will be joined by legendary ex-Manchester United players Edwin van der Sar, Roy Keane, Ruud Van Nistelrooy and Jaap Stam.

Captaining the England team is Soccer Aid co-founder and singing sensation Robbie Williams. His team will include his fellow Take That member Mark Owen; co-founder of Soccer Aid Jonathan Wilkes; Jls's Marvin Humes and Aston Merrygold; X Factor finalist Olly Murs; actor Jason Isaacs ('Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2'); TV presenters Ben Shephard, Jamie Theakston and Paddy Mcgunniess; and Liverpudlian comedian John Bishop. They will be joined by football's finest - Teddy Sheringham, David Seaman and Martin Keown, and managed by actor and former-footballer Bradley Walsh with Jamie Redknapp.

Soccer Aid was shaped by Robbie Williams, Jonathan Wilkes and Unicef UK - the world's largest children's charity - in 2006 and this year will be the fourth time the event has taken place. All funds from ticket sales and donations will go towards Unicef's work with suffering children all over the world. So far, Soccer Aid has raised £7.5 million towards the organisation.

The event will be broadcast live on ITV1 on May 27th hosted by Demot O'Leary and Kirsty Gallacher. Tickets are now on sale and can be purchased via itv.com/socceraid .
