Woody saves The Rest of The World!

This year's annual Soccer Aid match held in support of UNICEF saw actor Woody Harrelson stick it to the English and clinch the title for the first time for The Rest of The World. Yes, that is the team's name.

Both teams comprised celebrities and retired footballers. Gordon Ramsay falls into both categories I guess, but I have no idea why he's playing against England.

After a 2-2 draw it came down to a celebrity-only penalty shoot-out. Woody Harrelson scored the winning penalty. Apparently he only started playing at 40. Never too old or too late huh...

The Rest of The World team included celebs such as Mike Myers, Nicky Byrne from Westlife, Zinedine Zidane, Michael Sheen and The Mentalist's Simon Baker, amongst others.

Robbie Williams captained the England squad.

Check out Woody's winning kick:
