Lampard will be co-managing the England team with uncle Harry Redknapp, and the 2012 Champions League winner has spoken about being involved in this year’s Soccer Aid. On the upcoming event, Lampard said: “Playing in front of a sold-out crowd at Stamford Bridge is special – for any player, on any occasion.

“I’m excited to be doing that again – this time with Soccer Aid for UNICEF. Managing the Soccer Aid England team with Harry Redknapp will be a proud moment and great fun – but the main focus is rightly on the millions of pounds we can all raise together.”

England are set to have a star-studded line-up for the match, with Jermain Defoe, Jack Wilshere, Stuart Broad and Sir Mo Farah just some of the names on the Three Lions’ roster. But the standout player will likely be former Chelsea star Hazard, who is featuring for the Rest of the World side.

England are set to have a star-studded line-up for the match, with Jermain Defoe, Jack Wilshere, Stuart Broad and Sir Mo Farah just some of the names on the Three Lions’ roster. But the standout player will likely be former Chelsea star Hazard, who is featuring for the Rest of the World side.

Following the announcement, Hazard said: “My Chelsea family – I am coming home on Sunday 9th June! I can’t wait to see you all again. Playing at Stamford Bridge was always amazing. We won so many trophies together there. Some of the very best memories I have in football – seven brilliant years. I miss them.

“As I enter a new chapter, we can write new history with Soccer Aid for UNICEF. Together, we can and will raise millions of pounds for children across the world. So, buy your tickets and let’s have a great day together in June”.

In charge of Hazard’s Rest of the World side for the match will be current Chelsea boss Mauricio Pochettino. The Argentine has endured a difficult first season in charge of the west Londoners, but he has agreed to return to the role, having been involved in Soccer Aid for the first time last year.

On the upcoming event, Pochettino said: “Soccer Aid for UNICEF is a huge event – and one I am delighted to be part of again. The 2023 match was a great experience to be a part of and that is why I was more than happy to accept a return this year, particularly as it will be at Stamford Bridge and with Frank Lampard, a Chelsea legend, in the opposing dugout for England.

“We raised so much money last year, and I hope we can do the same this time, so please get involved and buy your tickets. A sold-out Stamford Bridge generates an incredible atmosphere and we want the players who are part of Soccer Aid 2024 to enjoy that same feeling when they step out on to the pitch on Sunday 9th June.”
