The all-star Soccer Aid match, held at Manchester United’s Old Trafford, started off on the right foot with a lineup of top international celebrities. The English team included Robbie Williams, Mark Owen, Aston Merrygold, Olly Murs and Marvin Humes; the Rest of the World team included Ramsay, Ferrell, Mike Myers, Gerard Butler, Edward Norton, James McAvoy, Woody Harrelson and Michael Sheen.
But after a tackle by former pro player Teddy Sheringham, the Hell’s Kitchen chef, 45, had to be lifted off the field in a stretcher.
“Thx 4 all the messages. Out of hospital after receiving amazing care from medics at ground & hospital. Bit sore but fine,” the usually foul-mouthed Ramsay wrote Monday on Twitter.
As for Ferrell, the 44-year-old actor limped off the field late in the second half after hurting his leg. The status of his injury is unknown.
While the film industry was well-represented on the Rest of the World team, it was the English team — with a little help from former internationals — that ultimately won the game, 3-1.
But all’s fair in soccer, as long as it’s for a good cause. The annual charity match raised more than $6.4 million for UNICEF through ticket sales and donations. The U.K. government also pledged to match all funds raised through donations.
