At the London Stadium on Sunday, celebrities and past players teamed up to put on a spectacle and raise money for UNICEF in Soccer Aid 2022. After a 2-2 draw in regulation, a world XI defeated England in penalties. Cafu, Roberto Carlos, Teddy Sheringham, Mark Noble, and Andriy Shevchenko were among the soccer legends on display.
Noah Beck, a TikTok celebrity, scored the ROTW’s first goal of the game. When Patrice Evra was fouled by YouTuber Chunkz, Beck converted the following penalty and sent David James the wrong way. Chunks fouled Beck, resulting in a penalty for England, and Beck went from hero to zero before halftime.
Tom Grennan’s Spectacular Goal.
Jamie Carragher refused to let Chunkz take the penalty himself, instead, Mark Wright stepped up to make it 1-1. With England up 1-0 thanks to Tom Grennan’s spectacular goal, the game resumed after a long US-style halftime break. To force extra time, the game went to penalties, which were won by ex-Love Island contestant Kem Cetinay, who scored his fourth goal in Soccer Aid history.
England’s first penalty was missed by Grennan, who had been hailed as the match’s hero before the error. He then watched as Scotland’s Tom Stoltman saved the comedian Russell Howard’s penalty. While England’s famous goalkeeper, actor David Harewood, was out with a hamstring injury, the rest of the world converted all four of their penalties.
