Stars collide at Old Trafford for Soccer Aid 2018

Olly Murs has the X factor

England Soccer Aid captain Robbie Williams
1 of 1

England v The Rest Of The World
ITV1, 8pm Sunday

The rest of the world are expected to do better than England in the World Cup and it's the same story in Sunday's Soccer Aid charity match at Old Trafford.

England are the outsiders against a Rest of the World side skippered by sprint king Usain Bolt and featuring stellar ex-professionals such as Patrick Kluivert, Eric Cantona and Clarence Seedorf plus celebrities Nicky Byrne and Gordon Ramsay.

England are captained by Robbie Williams, who has played in the game every time it has taken place. Four of the last six Soccer Aid matches have been won by England, who have celebrities Olly Murs, Paddy McGuinness, Ben Shephard, Lee Mack and 2016 man of the match Mark Wright in their ranks, as well as sporting dynamos Sir Mo Farah and Michael Owen.

There are differences of opinion in the first-scorer market, with Coral making Yaya Toure and Robbie Keane 7-2 favourites ahead of 5-1 Owen and Kluivert. Sky Bet have Owen and Kluivert at 5-1 but they make Murs just 13-2 so the 16-1 about the singer scoring first with Coral and Ladbrokes could hit the right note.

O Murs first goalscorer
