"This was a fantastic event which was all that I expected, it was truly about living the dream. Absolutely excellent, wouldn't hesitate in doing it again. Can't actually believe we didn't equalise in the second half, but that was down to some superb goalkeeping! Thanks to Football Aid for a brilliant evening."
