Williams signs Zidane for soccer aid

Robbie Williams has said that he is "over the moon" about Zinedine Zidane signing up for this summer's Soccer Aid.

The former France international will join a string of former football stars and celebrities for the ITV charity match in June.

Speaking about the three-time World Player Of The Year, Williams joked, "I can't believe he's playing. I'm over the moon. I won't know whether to shake his hand or lick his face."

Zidane will line up for the Rest Of The World team at Old Trafford on June 6. He will team up with members of Westlife and ex-cricketer Brian Lara. James Corden, GMTV's Ben Shephard, boxer Ricky Hattoon and ex-England stars Alan Shearer, Teddy Sheringham and Jamie Redknapp will play for the home side.

The event, which raises money for UNICEF, was started by Williams in 2006.
