Usually celebrities and A-list Hollywood actors make a fool of themselves during charity sports events, but not Woody Harrelson.

Harrelson’s sports resume isn’t completely blank, as he starred in the basketball comedy ‘Semi-Pro’ , but he doesn’t have the ties to soccer like fellow co-star Will Ferrell does.

The UNICEF Celebrity Soccer game which featured an England squad against the Rest of the World team, both teams made up of celebrities and retired soccer players. Harrelson and other celebrities such as Mike Myers and Ricky Hatton played in front of a crowd of 65,000 at Old Trafford in Manchester.

The game was forced into a shootout after a 2-2 tie at the end of 90 minutes, and an unlikely hero emerged. Harrelson nailed his penalty shot to secure the victory for the Rest of the World team to the dismay of the home crowd.
