There are now five former Chelsea players lining up at Stamford Bridge at the Soccer Aid for Unicef match in June, with Glen Johnson joining Joe Cole in the England XI.
Johnson, a Chelsea player between 2003 and 2007, teams up with Cole against fellow ex-Blues Didier Drogba, Michael Essien and Ricardo Carvalho who are representing the World XI, with a trio of former England internationals also announced on St George’s Day.
David Seaman, Jamie Carragher and Michael Owen, all familiar adversaries to Chelsea fans, will line up at the Bridge on Sunday June 16 to raise money for children all over the world.
Other stars lined up to play in the contest include Eric Cantona and athletes Usain Bolt and Sir Mo Farah, pop star Niall Horan, Chelsea fan Marvin Humes and former England midfielder and Frank Lampard’s cousin, Jamie Redknapp. His father, Harry, will be managing the England team alongside TV presenter Susanna Reid, while Sam Allardyce and Piers Morgan are bossing the World XI team.
Tickets for Soccer Aid for Unicef 2019, which takes place on Sunday 16 June, are available now. Prices begin at £10 for under-16s and £20 for adults, meaning a family of four can attend for £60.
