Soccer Aid is a charity fundraiser which was first staged in 2006.

Over the last 12 years, £24million has been raised through Soccer Aid which has all been donated to Unicef.

The two sides are made of football stars and celebrities from the world of TV, film and sport.

England have been victorious in four of the previous games and World XI have triumphed in two of the matches, but who will claim victory tonight?

Who will win?

Bookmaker Coral has odds on Usain Bolt’s World XI as the favourite for victory at odds of 4-6.

England are 9-4, while the draw is 9-2.

Harry Aitkenhead, of Coral, said: “As a Manchester United fan himself, Usain Bolt will be relishing the chance to run out at Old Trafford and we’re expecting the star studded Rest of the World team to be too strong for the England boys.

“It’s always great to see the celebrities running out alongside our legends and at the moment Lee Mack, Olly Murs and Mark Wright have all been popular bets by punters on who might score the first goal on the night.”
