Soccer Aid 2018 did not disappoint.

The charity match, which was contested between England against a World XI, featured a star studded line-up consisting of celebrities and footballers.

England's line-up featured the likes of Danny Murphy and David Seaman, as well as Olly Murs and Mo Farah.

Usain Bolt captained the World XI, with Yaya Toure, Kevin Pietersen and Eric Cantona also featuring.

And the game was thoroughly entertaining throughout, with England emerging victorious on penalties after the game finished 3-3 in normal time.

Clive Tyldesley was on commentary duty alongside Robbie Savage, and the former produced a truly horrendous moment in the first half.

With Toure picking the ball up in his own half, Tyldesley broke out into his own rendition of the 'Toure chant' that the Ivorian has become synonymous with.

And it is absolutely horrendous. Listen to it below.

Wow. That is atrocious.

It may be for charity, but no one will want to hear that again.

What Tyldesley was thinking in that moment is anybody's idea.

Football fans picked up on the moment, and many did not quite know what to think of it.

Although the game itself was not great quality-wise, it was still an entertaining affair.

England broke the deadlock 12 minutes into the game as Darren Bent rolled the ball past Edwin van der Sar after latching onto a superb Murs through-ball.

Jeremy Lynch doubled England's lead seven minutes later, only for the World XI to hit back through goals from Robbie Keane and Juan Sebastian Veron.

The World XI then took the lead after Clarence Seedorf emerged from the bench to hammer home, only for Michael Owen to score ten minutes from time.

The game would finish 3-3 and go all the way to penalties, with Blake Harrison scoring the decisive spot kick to seal victory for England.

Well done to add involved, with the game raising £5,540,259 for UNICEF.
