Is there extra time in Soccer Aid? Or does the match go straight to penalties if it ends in a draw

CELEBRITIES and legends from the world of sport are coming together once again for Soccer Aid.

The charity game between England and the Rest of the World is this year being played at Old Trafford – but will it go all the way to penalties as it did in 2018 AND 2019.

Is there extra time in Soccer Aid?

YOU may remember that Blake Harrison – aka Neil from the Inbetweeners – was the penalty hero for England in 2018.

He stepped up to fire the winning penalty past Nicky Byrne after Star Wars actor Hayden Christensen had blown it from 12 yards.

Soccer Aid is always keenly contested and both sides will be wanted to lift the trophy following the clash in West London.

If the match is a draw after 90 minutes, it will go STRAIGHT to penalties.

There is no extra-time period.
