The Inbetweeners star scores winning Soccer Aid goal

A thrilling game saw both sides draw 3-3 at full-time leaving players having to line up for the dreaded penalty shoot-out to decide the victor.

Playing for the "Rest of the World" team against an England side made up of former players and celebrities, Bolt had a goal chalked off for offside and later hit the crossbar, but was able to convert a penalty in the shootout low into the corner after the game ended 3-3.

England is known for buckling under pressure in professional penalty shootouts for the World Cup and Euros.

Bolt led off with a goal in the shootout but some important saves from David Harewood and Hayden Christensen's miss set up actor Blake Harrison to win it for England from the spot.

Carter laid on a flawless cross for the World XI's first goal of the match scored by Irish football worldwide Robbie Keane.

Further drama came in the second half with thrilling goals on both sides from Clarence Seedorf and Michael Owen.

'I would have loved to have headed home to Jamaica with the Soccer Aid for Unicef trophy under my arm, but my team and I are so proud to know that all of our hard work in training this week has meant that a record-breaking, life-changing amount of money was donated to Unicef tonight'.

Co-founded and launched in 2006 by Unicef UK ambassador Robbie Williams and Jonathan Wilkes, Soccer Aid has raised £24 million for children in danger around the world.

He then did this to send England fans into a frenzy.
