Arsenal legend Ian Wright put his boots back on returned to the famed turf at Wembley Stadium.

Wright celebrated hitting one million followers on Twitter by giving his fans a once in a lifetime opportunity to join him for #OneMoreGame at the home of football courtesy of Vauxhall, the England team sponsor.

Challenging Wright was Soccer AM’s Tubes who, after captaining England in a Scotland Fan v England Fan game last year, came out victorious.

Team Wright included ex-Chelsea and Leeds United defender Michael Duberry and were managed by England Women’s defender Alex Scott.

The game was officiated by Mark Halsey and saw John Healy and footballer turned boxer Leon McKenzie fire Team Wright into a 2-0 lead, before ex-England manager Graham Taylor's Team Tubes, which included Ray Parlour and Martin Keown, fought back to level 2-2.

Fittingly it was Wright himself, wearing his iconic No.8 jersey, who scored a typical winner to settle the game.

“I’ve watched all the FA Cup Finals from 1970 up to the present day, and Wembley is such a special stadium," Wright said.

"I never dreamed that I would actually get to play and score there.

“The response from the fans to #OneMoreGame has been unbelievable and it is a day I will never forget.

“I hope that this day will live long in the memory of everyone who took part and I’d like to thank Vauxhall for all their help in making it happen.”
