England stars – led by Harry Kane (R) and Harry Maguire – have made a donation just under six-figures to Soccer Aid ahead of Sunday’s charity game

Funds will go towards helping children across the world, including those stricken by the war in Ukraine.
Gareth Southgate’s players, who face Italy at Molineux tonight, have also recorded a special video message that will be broadcast on ITV on Sunday as part of the network’s coverage of the clash.
Ex professionals such as Joe Cole, Gary Neville, Jamie Carragher, David James, Mark Noble and Teddy Sheringham are all set to feature for England – who are coached by Harry Redknapp.
The match will see a number of celebrities and sports icons – such as Mo Farah – take part
Patrice Evra, Cafu, Petr Cech, Roberto Carlos, Andriy Shevchenko, Andrea Pirlo and Dimitar Berbativ are expected to turn out for the World XI – who are managed by Arsene Wenger.
Soccer Aid for UNICEF has raised over £60m since its inception in 2006.
Like all donations, the kind-hearted contribution from the England squad will be aid-matched – effectively doubled – by sponsors.
