Kasabian's Serge Rocks Up For Soccer Aid 2012

There are just over three weeks to go until Soccer Aid hits Old Trafford and there are still some huge names to be announced. The latest megastar to be confirmed Sergio Pizzorno from the mighty rock band, Kasabian.

Serge had originally dreamt of being a footballer when he was younger, but his plans soon changed when his careers adviser disagreed: "I told my careers adviser I wanted to be centre forward for Leicester City. When he said 'No' I thought I'd be in a rock 'n' roll band." It's time for him to swap his guitar for football boots and sell out arenas for the Theatre of Dreams to help raise money for UNICEF!

He joins the Rest of the World team, captained by Welsh actor Michael Sheen, alongside Will Ferrell, Gerard Butler, Mike Myers, James McAvoy, Patrick Kielty and Gordon Ramsay with ex Manchester United players Edwin van der Sar, Roy Keane, Ruud Van Nistelrooy and Jaap Stam. The team will be managed by legendary Scot, Kenny Dalglish.

The formidable England team will be captained by Robbie Williams, with Jason Isaacs, Mark Owen, Marvin Humes, Aston Merrygold, Olly Murs, John Bishop, Jonathan Wilkes, Ben Shephard, Jamie Theakston and Paddy McGuinness. Football heroes Teddy Sheringham, David Seaman and Martin Keown will complete the squad. For the first time Bradley Walsh takes on the role as Coach with Jamie Redknapp assistant managing.
