Edward Norton And Woody Harrelson Sign Up To Soccer Aid 2012

Last week we announced that Serge Pizzorno would be joining the Rest of the World squad for Soccer Aid 2012. This week we have yet more superstar names confirmed to take part in the big game at Old Trafford...

Actor Woody Harrelson returns to the Rest of the World team alongside newcomer, actor, filmmaker, and UN Goodwill Ambassador for Biodiversity Edward Norton!

"As far as chances to have fun while doing something that helps other doesn't get much better than this," said Edward, talking about taking part in Soccer Aid 2012.

Anyone watching in 2010 will know that Woody scored the winning penalty during the game, securing the trophy for the Rest of the World team for the first time in the tournament’s history and he'll be hoping for victory once again at Old Trafford.

Scoring the winning goal at Old Trafford in 2010 was probably the highlight of a pretty great life," said Woody Harrelson. "Granted, I instantly became the least popular man in England, but they loved me in Ireland. It was great to be a part of the Rest of the World’s first victory against the English team, I can't wait to see what happens this time!”

Joining Woody and Edward in the Rest of the World team will be four-time Champions League winner, Dutch international and current AC Milan midfielder Clarence Seedorf.
Taking on the formidable Rest of The World are the latest England team signings, striker Kevin Phillips and defender Des Walker.
Kevin was the only Englishman to have won the European Golden Shoe – an award for the top goal scorer in the European premiership league and Des, best known for playing in England's famous Italia '90 team which got to the semi-finals of The World Cup, earned 59 caps playing for England during his career.

The best news is that tickets are still available! Be a part of one of the most exciting football matches of the year and support UNICEF...
