Who won last year's Soccer Aid?
Soccer Aid in 2019 went right down to the wire as penalties were needed to settle the affair.
F2 Freestylers' Jeremy Lynch scored twice to ease England into a 2-0 lead, before Usain Bolt pulled one back for Rest of the World just before half-time.
England looked to have been keeping their opponents at bay to see out a win, but 2017 Love Island winner Kem Cetinay levelled with seven minutes to go to send the match past normal time.
And it was ROW that came out on top with Cetinay firing home the winning penalty, much to the delight of coaching duo Harry Redknapp and Piers Morgan.
