McGuinness ready for battle

Comedian and England star

Paddy McGuinness

 gives us the lowdown on his tactics to help the Three Lions to a hat-trick of Soccer Aid victories...

What are you most looking forward to about Sunday's Soccer Aid match at Old Trafford?
The chance to grace the pitch with legends of the game such as Bradley Walsh and Ben Shepherd.

Who is the opposition dangerman?
I’m not worried about their celebrity players because half of them are rubbish but Ryan Giggs, wow, he’s still playing top level football so he'll need to be watched.

Are you match fit?
It depends what you class as match fit - I did a brisk walk to the paper shop the other day.

Everyone is obviously coming together to raise money and awareness for a great cause - what does it mean to you to be involved in helping UNICEF?
I’m fortunate enough to live in a developed country. By doing things like Soccer Aid, hopefully it will bring awareness and much needed funding to those places that are not as fortunate.

Finally, how confident are you about England's chances?
Very - put your mortgage on us to win.
