Michael Sheen - Michael Sheen's Rest Of World Team Triumphs At Soccer Aid

Welsh actor Michael Sheen's Rest of the World team was victorious over an all-star England squad at the 2014 Soccer Aid charity match on Sunday (08Jun14).

Sheen, who left the game with an elbow injury after just 15 minutes, captained a team of former international soccer stars and celebrities, including actors Sam Worthington, Jeremy Renner and James MCAvoy, Tv chef Gordon Ramsay, former Westlife singer Nicky Byrne, and Glee star Mark Salling at the sporting fundraiser in Manchester, England.

His team beat the England side 4-2 thanks to three goals from Dutch ex-pro Clarence Seedorf and one by Byrne.

The biennial event, organised by British singer Robbie Williams, raises money for Unicef Uk.

Williams helped manage the 2014 England team, which included his former Take That bandmate Mark Owen, Jls star Marvin Humes, singer Olly Murs and actor Jack Whitehall, after ruling himself out of the action with a back injury.
