As soon as the curtain fell on my Strictly career, I knew my next move had to be Soccer Aid for Unicef. For years, I have been a massive fan of the match and have always watched the game in between performances. To be able to finally announce that I will be swapping my dancing shoes for football boots this summer feels incredible.
What’s bigger than the nation’s love of dancing? The nation’s love of the beautiful game, of course – and I’m aiming for tens across the board.
– Brendan Cole, Soccer Aid World XI
The international friendly match will take place at Old Trafford on Sunday 10th June.
