Superstar Zidane Joins Soccer Aid Line-Up

French football legend, Zinedine Zidane, is the latest player to be added to the star-studded list of household names appearing at this summer's Soccer Aid 2010.

The match, which will take place on Sunday, 6th June 2010 at Manchester United's legendary stadium, Old Trafford, will also feature star turns from celebrities and ex-pros including Alan Shearer, Ricky Hatton, Jamie Redknapp, Gordon Ramsay, Henrik Larsson, oh… and of course a certain Mr Williams, too!

Robbie, who is A UNICEF UK ambassador and the mastermind behind Soccer Aid, said about Zidane's appearance: "I can't believe he's playing, I'm over the moon. I won't know whether to shake his hand or lick his face."

Zidane, who was a central figure in France's World Cup 1998 and Euro 2000 cup winning squads, also scored the winning goal for Real Madrid in the UEFA Champions League final in 2002. The ex-Galactico won the prestigious FIFA World Player of the Year and Ballon d'Or titles during his illustrious career. Not bad, eh?!
