Sam Allardyce wrestles with Niall Horan during Soccer Aid match

Big Sam is on an absolute roll right now. When he's not gloating in press conferences about keeping Sunderland in the Premier League, he's lording it up around Marbella. 

The Sunderland boss was in his absolute element last night as the manager of an England XI, who took on the Rest of The World in the SoccerAid charity match at Old Trafford. 

Larking around on the touchline as he watched his team claim a 3-2 win in the game, which was organised in order to raise funds for UNICEF, Allardyce shared a laugh and a joke with his player/assistant coach, One Direction's Niall Horan. Weirdest sentence ever.

The former West Ham and Newcastle boss then did what any reasonable man would do and wrestled with the Irish pop star, before picking him up in a sort of suplex. Scrap what we said a moment ago, *that* was the weirdest sentence ever.

You can check out the video of the frankly bizarre incident at the bottom of this article.

It was an eventful night at Old Trafford, where Ronaldinho put on an absolute exhibition in nutmegging assorted celebrities - if there is such a thing - with Phil Neville and Ben Shepherd his most high profile victims.

Speaking of Shepherd....the Good Morning Britain presenter earned his place in SoccerAid infamy by becoming the first player in the game's 10-year history to be sent off after receiving two yellow cards.

He picked up his first booking for absolutely cutting Edgar Davids in half, which, in what was probably the funniest moment of the night, infuriated pundit Peter Schmeichel so much he almost had to be carted out of the ITV studio.

The night belonged to one man in the end though. That's right, we're talking about former TOWIE star Mark Wright. 

The reality TV star-turned presenter spanked a Roberto Carlos-esque free-kick past a flailing Patrick Kielty in goal. OK, that one really does win the prize for the weirdest sentence ever. It's not even close.

Which sentence in this article do you think has been the weirdest collection of words ever strung together in human history? Leave a comment below. Or don't.
