HARRY REDKNAPP and Sam Allardyce will go head-to-head in a star-studded celebrity football match to raise funds for Covid-19 charity Mask Our Heroes.

#COVAID will be staged in front of a bubble of fans in a fully-sanitised stadium with every player and fan tested for the virus before kick-off.

Former England manager Allardyce will manage the My Club Group XI, assisted by former England and Liverpool midfielder Sammy Lee.

Ex-West Ham, AFC Bournemouth and Tottenham boss Redknapp will take charge of the Mask Our Heroes XI, representing a charity specialising in Covid safety, delivering crucial PPE to hospitals, care homes, hospices and schools.

Several big-name stars from the sports and entertainment world will line up against each other.

The Mask Our Heroes XI will be captained by the charity’s co-founder, Hollywood actor Tamer Hassan.

And the team will feature former professional footballers Anton Ferdinand, Jimmy Bullard, TV’s Calum Best and social media sensations Arron Crascall and Dapper Laughs.

Other former players lacing up the boots again include Emile Heskey, Bobby Zamora, Wayne Bridge and Joey Barton.

Champion jockey Oisin Murphy, ITV Racing presenter Oli Bell, Rugby World Cup winner Kyran Bracken and former Blue singer Anthony Costa will also take to the field.

Redknapp said: “I cannot wait to get back into the managerial game – and for a cause as good as Mask Our Heroes.

"Sam is the best of rivals and I look forward to going head-to-head with him once again.
