What has been said?
England were humiliated in the 2021 edition of Soccer Aid when World XI put three past them with no return.
But former Spurs manager Harry Redknapp is determined to put things right this year round.
Redknapp said: “”Anyone who knows me will tell you that I would never turn my country down, so when they asked me to be England manager, I had to say yes.
“I’m proud to manage England – I know we can finally win.”
Someone who Redknapp knows very well during his Spurs tenure is iconic ex-Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger.
And the Frenchman will be making his Soccer Aid debut in the dugout for World XI.
Wenger said: “I am really looking forward to this special football match in June.
“It’s great and special to play a football match together with former opponents for a good purpose.
“Football unites and football gives hope.”
