Funnyman Will Ferrell and chef Gordon Ramsay were left injured as England beat the Rest of the World 3-1 in celebrity sporting event Soccer Aid on Sunday (27May12).

Hell's Kitchen star Ramsay was given oxygen on the pitch and was stretchered from the field of play after he was clattered from behind by former England international Teddy Sheringham in the charity game.

And Anchorman star Ferrell hobbled out of the match when he suffered a leg injury late in the second half.

Kasabian rocker Serge Pizzorno opened the scoring for the Rest of the World team with a sensational chip over former England goalkeeper David Seaman, but the England side fought back in the second half with goals from Sheringham, captain Jonathan Wilkes and soccer ace Kevin Phillips to win the game 3-1.

Stars including Mike Myers, Gerard Butler, Edward Norton, Woody Harrelson and Michael Sheen went up against an England side which included Take That's Mark Owen and JLS singers Aston Merrygold and Marvin Humes in the biennial match, held in Manchester, England.

The event, organised by Owen's fellow Take That star Robbie Williams, raised more than $6.4 million (£4 million) for UNICEF.

Pizzorno was awarded the honour of Man of the Match for his stunning goal.
