Ten years ago, UK singer Robbie Williams kickstarted a wildly successful fundraiser for UNICEF.

Today, in the tenth anniversary year, Robbie’s team England won a 3-2 match against the Rest Of The World, that inspired over 5 million charitable donations to help children worldwide.

A number of big name celebrities participated in the match, including Williams himself, Glee’s Matt Morrison, singers Olly Murs and Shayne Ward, actors Michael Sheen and Iwan Rheon, and stealing the show – One Direction’s Louis Tomlinson and Niall Horan:
