UNICEF UK Ambassador Robbie Williams said: “Soccer Aid returns for the fifth time in June and I admit there are scores to settle.

“Leading the England team, I will be making sure we defend that trophy against Rest of the World. There’s never been a better time for us to show our support for UNICEF, so please dig deep and buy your tickets now!”

UNICEF UK Executive Director David Bull added: “Soccer Aid 2014 will raise vital money to help some of the world’s most vulnerable children get life-saving food, medicine and clean water.

“Every day, children are in serious danger and thousands die needlessly in the struggle against poverty, hunger and disease. It’s time for us all to act. Please, buy a ticket to go to Soccer Aid or watch the match on ITV and help us change children’s lives.”

The event will be hosted by Dermot O’Leary and Kirsty Gallacher. Last year it helped raise a staggering £4.9 million for UNICEF and this year that total is hoping to be beaten.
