Anybody watching this on ITV at the moment? Hugely entertaining game with some incredibly good football and some superb legendary talent on show. Worthy cause too.

Theakston, great saves.

Damien Lewis' effort in the first half was sublime.

Very entertaining, epic penalties too! I bet that was more entertaining than any England game in the world cup. A great watch.

Due to the fact he can't take a penalty! Great saves though.

Didn't watch all of it as Williams turns my stomach over.

Agree though, good cause and entertaining from the bits I watched.

Nice to see Giggs turn out for an international.

Quite impressed by Wilkes, Lara, Shepherd, Little and Lewis. A few were really hopeless but worth a good laugh!

That guy on the England right-wing in the first half (a talent show winner of some sort), didn't catch his name properly, but he was really good too. Gordon Ramsay for the ROW proved suprisingly athletic and competitive as well bearing in mind his age and build.

The 'old' pros were first class on both sides. I've always been a fan of Teddy Sheringham, even when he went to Man Utd :p and both he, Redknapp and Shearer ran around the pitch like players half their age. As for Zidane, Figo and Larsen - they still could play top flight football and not look out of place.

The penalty shoot out certainly was really great footballing fun. I just hope the WC throws up some games as entertaining as this was.

You missed a cracking match then. Do you avoid any game where there's one player on the pitch you don't like? :)

Lewis was suprisingly good during the match and his penalty was cracking.

If there was a player that I dislike as much as I do that man, I might well do that. :D

Ha ha, yes! Be fair, it's probably the first game of "soccerball" he's ever played before. I thought they were also kind to Simon "The Mentalist" Baker in letting him take a penalty where it didn't matter if he missed, which was blatantly going to happen. I'll let him off because I like the show.

Great Mike Myers penalty too.

I thought Simon Baker was an Aussie (wasn't he in Home & Away and Heartbreak High long before The Mentalist?). He should at least know how to kick a football, whatever shape it is.

That defence-splitting through ball to Larrson would've had Andy Gray jizzing in his pants.

Thoroughly enjoyed Soccer Aid this year, despite Robbie. A lot of class players on show, and was amazed at the number of big name Hollywood acts that showed up. Good for them!

I did LOL at Ando too. Bless.
