'If It's Football, It's Vital'

England victorious under 'Arry

Harry Redknapp was yesterday finally given the honour that he has craved - the chance to lead his country, which he did as an England side beat their counterparts from the Rest of the World in the charity event Soccer Aid, which was raising funds for unicef.

With the transfer window closed - so no business to be done - and most of our players away on international duty the Pompey manager was allowed to work with a collection of former football legends and stars of the world of entertainment for most of last week. At the end of it - last night - he had to oversee his troops at Wembley. Once again he managed to guide a team to success on the hallowed turf as England ran out victorious 4-3.

I do not know if anyone else watched the game, but it was entertaining with a range of stars on view - from footballs yesteryear and some surprisingly good footballers from other walks of life.

It was good to have Pompey represented on such a global event, but most importantly we must remember that this was all in the name of charity.

Smashing goal by some French actor I'd never heard of; clipped a delightful chip first time over David Seaman. Shearer showed how to take a penalty.

Figo showed the real class & without him England would have won it in the first half, but he is still playing in Italys top league was this right.

Yes Figo still plays for Inter - he is only 35. My son watched and said this England team would have murdered Andorra!!

The did just as well as the main team. Although Pompey wouldn't want Harry to leave. He could have been a better choice than Copello
