I know he was born in Yorkshire and supports Burnley but that's going a bit far, surely?

With a name like Campbell, he's probably drawing on some Scottish ancestry. Obviously not good enough for England, so had to opt for the ROW!

The rest of the world squad are actually better, they have Dunga, Zola, Maradonna, Desailly, Mattheus and others. And AC still made the squad

What are the rules about how many professionals and how many slebs there are in each team? Have to confess I haven't been following it that closely. I noticed that the Scottish international team the other evening was made up entirely of professionals whilst the ROW had slebs in too.

The Scottish team was a team made of up ex internationals, it had no need to have any celebs in it.

I have no idea about the rules regarding ratios of celebs and pros.

Am quite excited about tonight though

Both teams can play 4 legends at any one time
