And Jill Scott will land the unique honour of being the first female captain of the England side taking on the rest of the world XI. Jill said: “The Euros, The Jungle and now Soccer Aid for UNICEF - I’ve won two of them, so just need Soccer Aid now to complete ‘The Treble’. I think of all three, this might be the one I’m most nervous about, though – just look at the names involved! Buy a ticket, support this amazing cause and cheer us on.”

Dermot O’Leary and Alex Scott will present the event.
