Hollywood vs Brits for Soccer Aid

Hollywood stars Will Ferrell, Gerard Butler and Mike Myers are to take on the England team at this year's soccer aid.

The Anchorman funnyman and the 300 action hero have signed up for ITV1's celebrity charity football match, joining Austin Powers star Mike, who took part in 2010 in The Rest Of The World team, captained by Welsh Twilight star Michael Sheen.

They will face England, led by Soccer Aid devotee Robbie Williams, captaining a team including JLS stars Marvin Humes and Aston Merrygold, Olly Murs, TV presenter Ben Shephard and DJ Jamie Theakston, The Sun reports.

The match - in aid of children's charity Unicef - will take place on May 27 at Manchester United's Old Trafford on May 27 and will be broadcast live on ITV1.

Robbie will be helping to fend off competition from the Hollywood action men.

In 2010 England suffered defeat by the Rest Of The World team, who won 7-6 after a nail-biting penalty shoot-out.
