Special moments

“Being back at Stamford Bridge will, of course, be very significant for me personally – I have many cherished memories on that pitch,” he said.

“Soccer Aid for Unicef will be right up there in terms of creating special moments, which, after all, is why we love football so much.”

The 38-year-old who announced his retirement from international duty in 2012 will play under former national team coach, Sam Allardyce, during the welfare showdown.
