– Andrew Mitchell, International Development Secretary
The huge public response to the Soccer Aid appeal shows that those watching tonight's game are united not only by a love of football but by a fantastic generosity of spirit. We will reflect that spirit by matching pound for pound from our existing aid budget all public donations, helping Unicef reach hundreds of thousands more children in east and west Africa.
England have beaten the Rest of the World in Soccer Aid at Old Trafford. The charity event organised by Robbie Williams has raised millions of pounds for Unicef.
