Mourinho says: "I want to be the first one to win the Soccer Aid trophy for both teams, England and the Rest of the World.

"Sam and I will make a very good partnership and it will be a great feeling for Claudio to finally lose a match! I hope the organisers can help me now with an English passport!!"
