David Beckham is having a charity game, and everyone, including Landon Donovan, is playing in it.
Beckham is set to host a “Match for Children” at Old Trafford on Nov. 14 to aid UNICEF, and Donovan, Zinedine Zidane, Ronaldinho and Sir Alex Ferguson are just some of the notable names that will participate. The match will be set up in a Great Britain and Ireland vs. the Rest of the World format, and money raised from it will go towards UNICEF’s lifesaving care for vulnerable children around the world.
