Let’s get into some ‘participant’ rankings.
Goalkeeper & Defenders

John Bishop (RB) – 4/10 – Hey, at the least he had enjoyable.
Wes Brown (CB) – 6/10 – Was a pleasant shock to see the ex-Man Utd participant, who we assumed had simply disintegrated Thanos model in some unspecified time in the future throughout his Sunderland spell.
John Terry (CB) – 7/10 – Marshalled the backline effectively and was steadily seen cascading ahead, evidently assured his defensive counterparts had it coated. Deserves applause for putting Kem Cetinay on his arse.
Mark Vibrant (LB) – 4/10 – Not even completely positive the place he was enjoying however he had the no.3 shirt so we’ll say left-back.
Gareth Barry (CM) – 7/10 – Type of looks like dishonest to roll out the participant with essentially the most appearances in Premier League historical past for a charity match. He hasn’t misplaced a step – or at the least Dermot Kennedy made it appear to be he hadn’t misplaced a step.

Lee Mack – 3/10 – Entered the pitch to Chesney Hawkes’ ‘The One and Solely’ and it wasn’t humorous in any respect.
Paddy McGuiness – 4/10 – Not often does a person look so misplaced anyplace than Paddy McGuinness does on a soccer pitch. No likey.
Joe Cole – 5/10 – Surprisingly ineffectual for somebody who was enjoying professionally till 2018.
Ashley Cole – 6/10 – Large enchancment on John Bishop at left-back however that is not saying a lot.
Alfie Allen – 4/10 – The previous Recreation of Thrones star put in objectives for the second half in order to ensure the ball went into the England internet at some stage and he obliged.

Goalkeeper & Defenders
Shay Given (GK) – 6/10 – Had actually nothing to do however made no errors so, yeah.

Mikael Silvestre (CB) – 6/10 – Actually scraping the barrel for former execs right here aren’t we?
Patrice Evra (LB) – 6/10 – Ran the present and legitimately seemed pretty much as good as he ever has. Previous Trafford summons one thing in him.
Michael Essien (CM) – 8/10 – Right here he’s. May need been a charity sport however Essien handled it like a World Cup ultimate, as a result of he is Michael Essien and he would not do friendlies.
Dermot Kennedy (CM) – 6/10 – Actually thought this was Dermot O’Leary for your complete time he was on the pitch.
Chelcee Grimes (CAM) – 7/10 – An actual shiny spark within the first half and may have felt aggrieved to have been subbed on the break. The one non-international lady ever to play in Soccer Assist thus far – this occasion has a little bit of catching as much as do.
Lianne Sanderson (RW) – 7/10 – Ex-England winger was vigorous all through and got here near breaking the impasse.
Serge Pizorno (CF) – 7/10 – Substituted early as a result of there needed to be two girls on the pitch on the similar time. Yeah.
Jeremy Lynch (LW) – 4/10 – Do not know who he’s and did not even realise he was enjoying. Freestyle footballer? Cool.
Kem Cetinay – 6/10 – Apparently he is from Love Island and he is undoubtedly not an excellent footballer.
Ore Oduba – 6/10 – Properly-known face from BBC TV who apparently gained Strictly at one level. Not the most effective keeper, sadly.
