Chart-topping boy band JLS will be the headline act at the opening ceremony of a charity football match between Manchester United and Real Madrid legends.

They'll perform a selection of their greatest hits on the Old Trafford pitch ahead of the Red Heart United Legends match on June 2.

The event, which aims to raise money for the Manchester United Foundation, will see team manager Bryan Robson lead out a United side of legends including Edwin van der Sar, Denis Irwin, Jaap Stam and Teddy Sheringham.

Real Madrid have enlisted the help of veteran players such as Zinedine Zidane, Luis Figo and Fernando Hierro and hope to defend a 3-2 lead, claimed in the first leg at the Bernabeu Stadium in Madrid last year.
