Soccer Aid: Susanna Reid and Piers Morgan clashing at charity football match

Share article:

Susanna Reid will face Piers Morgan at this year's "Soccer Aid for Unicef" as the match's first female manager.

The "Good Morning Britain" co-hosts will be in opposite dugouts for Unicef UK and ITV's star-studded charity football game at Chelsea FC's Stamford Bridge this summer, with a number of the sport's greats featuring alongside celebrities for the annual fundraiser.

Susanna will manage England alongside former national team coach Sam Allardyce - who won last year's fixture - while her co-host Piers will be paired with "I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!" winner Harry Redknapp.

The fixture will fall on June 16 - Father's Day - and Harry's son Jamie is looking forward to lining up against his dad when he plays alongside the likes of reality stars Mark Wright and Joe Wicks for the England team.

He said: "Even though we're on opposite teams, it's an honour to be able to play against my dad in "Soccer Aid for Unicef" this Father's Day.

"Some of my best memories of my childhood are playing with my dad and being with him at the football, and it's an incredible feeling to know we're making more playtime possible for kids around the world by getting together for this special game."

For Harry and Piers, their hopes will be boosted by Usain Bolt's return, while Chelsea legend Didier Drogba will be back at Stamford Bridge for the event.

Money raised will go towards Unicef's work protecting children in danger around the world, and striving to give them the chance to grow up happy, healthy and safe to play.

Robbie Williams, "Soccer Aid for Unicef" co-founder and Unicef UK Ambassador, said: "The ability to play is one of the most important things in any child's life. It's how they make friends, how they learn who they are and about the world around them, it's so vital.

"I've seen first-hand the important work Unicef does around the world helping to make sure every child can have a happy, healthy and safe childhood, to be able to play like all children should.

"I dread to think what my children would be like without play, they're so bright and happy and its absolutely everything to them. I hope everyone gets involved this summer with Soccer Aid for Unicef, we can all play our part to help kids around the world just be kids."
