Dermot O’Leary returns to host the TV coverage.

Roman took to Twitter on Friday to confirm he would be missing out on the UNICEF charity fundraiser, and said he was ‘gutted’ he would have to watch from home. 

‘I’m absolutely gutted. I’ve had a positive test come through so I won’t be playing at @SoccerAid tomorrow night,’ he wrote.  

‘I’ll be cheering from a sofa and hope that everyone donates as much as they can for the cause. Come on Soccer Aid World XI FC!’  

Roman attended the GQ Men Of The Year Awards in London on Wednesday before heading up to Manchester to train with his celebrity team. 

However, after he tested positive for Covid he was forced to pull out of the upcoming game.

Ahead of the match, Football Focus presenter Alex said: ‘I’m so excited for this! I’ve wanted to be involved in Soccer Aid for Unicef for many years, so I am delighted to be part of it now as pitch-side reporter.

‘For years I’ve watched the games and it’s something that I know loads of people look forward to. It’ll be great to be back in a stadium with fans again – and all for such a great cause. 

‘With so many great names already signed-up – and many more to come – there’s no excuse not to get your tickets now!’

Wayne added: ‘Pulling on an England shirt is always special, so I’m absolutely delighted to be doing that again in Soccer Aid for Unicef this September.

‘Managing the England team last year was great but being around the players made me want to lace up the boots again – now I’ve got that chance, one last time.

‘Soccer Aid for Unicef has been a massive force for good since it started back in 2006 and I know the public will support us again this year by purchasing tickets, which are now on sale.’
