Edgar Davids punches Jonathan Wilkes in Soccer Aid 2014

Published 1 Comments

Sunday saw England battle it out against the Rest of the World in the 2014 Soccer Aid charity match at Old Trafford for Unicef.

However, things could have turned sour after Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho, who was managing the Rest of the World decided to intervene the match to tackle singer Olly Murs.

Despite falling to the ground Murs didn’t take offence and instead both were left laughing at one another remembering the match’s main aim was to raise money for a good cause.

If the singer were going to take anything away from the tackle it should be a compliment as Mourinho was clearly fed up of the player running rings around his defenders.

However, despite this scuffle being laughed off the same couldn’t said for the clash between Dutch international Edgar Davids and TV presenter Jonathan Wilkes.

The two came to blows after Davids put in a strong tackle on Wilkes, which evidently riled the TV star. Immediately after the pair had to be separated by the referee after they seemingly forgot the reason why they were playing the game in the first place.

This year the Rest of the World came out on top winning the match an impressive 4-2.

Former Take That member Robbie Williams, who came up with the idea for Soccer Aid, announced that a total of £4.2 million was raised for Unicef this year.
