The Soccer Aid 2022 Fun Fact:

The whole charity event is a full package of fun as the fans will see sports stars and celebrities all hitting the ground with full dedication; not so much to score but to run with the ball.

The World XI manager and the former legendary Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger claims that he will select his XI based on the sleeping hours of his players. “The number of hours of sleep you have had over the last few days” will count to get a starting nod, says Wenger. Wonder if he used this strategy for Arsenal as a manager!

Just to run with the ball toward the right direction is mighty important for this intense fight. This very important strategy by the England XI manager has been leaked. As Harry Redknapp’s tips his captain, “He asked me what I wanted him to do, I said ‘just run in one direction.’”
