Neil From 'The Inbetweeners' Left Soccer Aid Viewers In Hysterics Before Kick-Off

It was one of the most entertaining Soccer Aid events in years as Usain Bolt's 'Rest Of The World' side suffered at the hands of unlikely source, Blake Harrison.

Harrison, who is fondly known for playing Neil on the hit TV show 'The Inbetweeners', netted the winning penalty at Old Trafford on Sunday night, but a priceless moment before kick-off grabbed the headlines on social media.

Just check out the following video and tell me you didn't chuckle. There's always one!

As cameras pan across 'The Rest Of The World' team, who included the likes of Darius Vassell, Freddie Flintoff and Mark Wright, the joker of the group, Blake, couldn't help but pull a funny face.

He then did this to send England fans into a frenzy. What a night it was for Blake.

Old Trafford was littered with star names from the world of football and the celebrity bubble, including singer-songwriter Olly Murs.

Murs captained the England side, and created the opening goal in sublime fashion. He pierced a delightful ball to Darren Bent who netted England's first goal of the night.

He was one of the biggest figures on the pitch last night, but despite being the fastest man on the planet, an England player reached a higher max speed than Usain Bolt.

The Jamaican sprint legend captained the World XI against an England XI and slotted away his penalty nicely.

Mo Farah, on the other hand, actually out-sprinted Bolt in the first-half, hitting 32 kph compared to the 100m runner's 31.6kph.
