ENGLAND suffered penalty shootout woe for the second Soccer Aid in a row, as World XI won the 2020 title at Old Trafford.
Comedian Lee Mack and YouTuber Chunkz missed from the spot in the Unicef charity match after a 1-1 draw on Sunday night.
At one point, the chances of a ball hitting the net all night seemed pretty slim.
The brightest moment of a quiet first-half saw Chelsea captain, leader and legend John Terry take matters into his own hands.
Bombing forward to get on the end of a rapid counter-attack, the 39-year-old produced a centre-back’s finish that headed straight for the corner flag.
Down the other end, old Blues pal Michael Essien launched a trademark piledriver that flashed wide of David James’ post.
The second-half cut back on the 2005-06 Premier League Years vibe to introduce a dazzling of star power.
But that also meant a sense of jeopardy as celebs Alfie Allen and Ore Oduba took over the goalkeepers’ gloves.
There was no joy for Games Of Thrones star Allen, however, after Robbie Keane’s opener.
The Tottenham and Ireland legend curled a delightful effort in off the post from 18 yards to give World XI the lead.
Then it was the turn of the popstars.
Dermot Kennedy drove a powerful effort towards the far-post that would have made it 2-0, but for a goalline clearance.
Straight up the other end, James Bay provided a sweet cross for Yung Filly to calmly roll home.
The YouTube star’s fairytale moment was completed by a joyous celebration with best mate and fellow online sensation Chunkz, whose big chance was still to come despite being subbed off.
Chances came and went for both sides but, with 90 minutes on the clock, Mark Clattenburg’s whistle meant, yet again, Soccer Aid was going to penalties.
DJ Locksmith missed for World XI before England’s Lee Mack fluffed his lines.
With the shootout tied at 3-3, Love Island’s Kem Cetinay put World XI ahead.
That left the sudden death penalty to Chunkz, whose sidefoot finish beat Oduba all ends up but flashed inches wide of the post.
The surreal feel to the night was rounded off with the victors not actually realising they had won until clocking Oduba’s celebrations – before Locksmith triumphantly lifted the shield.
