UNICEF’s organised match between Great Britain & Ireland and a Rest of the World XI ended in victory for the GB team but it was more symbolic than anything else.

After the atrocities in Paris, the game going ahead was the perfect symbol that nothing will be disrupted – life, football, humans, will continue even in the face of sheer brutality and barbarism.

Seeing David Beckham line-up alongside the likes of Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer again was fantastic and a memory which those who saw the game will really cherish.
