Not only was poor old JT trolled by Jack Whitehall as he warmed up, but he was also nutmegged by Manchester United legend Paul Scholes. Click HERE to see that video.
However, Terry was on the winning side as Ferguson’s men recorded a 3-1 win over the Rest of the World, thanks to a brace from Michael Owen and a header from Scholes.
