The Inbetweeners star scores winning Soccer Aid goal

After the fulltime siren sounded the scores were locked up at 3-3 with the match decided on a penalty shootout.

As cameras pan across "The Rest Of The World" team, who included the likes of Darius Vassell, Freddie Flintoff and Mark Wright, the joker of the group, Blake, couldn't help but pull a amusing face.

But actor Blake Harrison, a former star of "The Inbetweeners", was England's unlikely hero that netted the decisive spot kick - perhaps providing an omen ahead of the World Cup that the Three Lions' penalties hoodoo could come to an end.

This Sunday he will get to partly realise his dream as he will play at Old Trafford in Soccer Aid for Unicef, a celebrity football match for charity that will pit singer Robbie Williams' England team against Bolt's Rest of the World XI.

Harrison, 32, posted a picture on Twitter of himself and actor David Harewood taken after the game, and wrote: "What a buzz!"


In regular time England took the lead through former national striker Darren Bent and freestyle footballer Jeremy Lynch doubled their lead soon after.

It was then time for the World XI to get into the act as Robbie Keane scored before former United midfielder Veron made it 2-2 on the night.

Soccer Aid for Unicef will be broadcast on ITV in the United Kingdom from 6.30pm on Sunday 10 June.

There were legends all over the pitch, with Eric Cantona, Michael Owen, Robbie Keane and British gold medallist Mo Farah joining in the Soccer Aid match to help raise funds for UNICEF at Old Trafford.

Home nation Russian Federation will take on opponents Saudia Arabia 30 minutes after the opening ceremony starts inside Moscow's Luzhniki Stadium.
