Former Manchester United, Gary Neville joined others at the James Bay charity dinner.
The whole England squad were thrilled by renditions at the event held at St Albans. Gary Neville joined Wayne Rooney as both of them thrilled the audience. The 30-year-old England skipper belted out a rendition of Bay’s top 10 hit Hold Back the River while the Three Lions assistant boss played the guitar.
The audience was pictured laughing hysterically at the event organized by the England Footballers Foundation (EFF) event. The EFF was set up in 2007 to allow England internationals to donate their match fees to charitable causes, with The Bobby Moore Fund for Cancer Research UK, Help for Heroes, and The PFA’s charitable initiatives the main beneficiaries. The entire England men national squad attended with other invited guests, notable amongst them is Brazilian former world footballer of the year, Pele. The legend was pictured taking selfies with the members of the team.
Rooney scored a goal in the international friendly played on Friday. The goal was his 52nd as he scored coming off the bench as The Three Lions won another of their pre euro 2016 warm up games. Marcus Rashford showed his goal scoring ability when he scored via a fine effort early in the game. Rooney doubled the lead with his strike from the edge of the area, after the first half had ended with the 1-0 lead from Rashford.
Manager Roy Hodgson will cut two players of the provisional list in a bid to have a final 23-man team to play at the continental tournament. Doubts remain over the fitness of Daniel Sturridge due to his injury concerns. England will play Portugal in their final warm-up match at Wembley on Thursday prior to their scheduled flight to France.
