The Inbetweeners star Blake Harrison said it was “a buzz” scoring the winning goal in Soccer Aid.

The actor – who played Neil in the hit comedy – scored the deciding penalty after the teams drew 3-3 in the match at Manchester United’s Old Trafford stadium on Sunday.

His goal helped the England side beat the Rest Of The World team.

Harrison, 32, posted a picture on Twitter of himself and actor David Harewood taken after the game, and wrote: “What a buzz!!! @socceraid penalty Heroes!!

“Please donate to @UNICEF_uk if you enjoyed the game!”

Soccer Aid For Unicef was launched in 2006 by Robbie Williams and TV presenter Jonathan Wilkes.

It features a mix of football stars and celebrities. Stars taking part this year included Brendan Cole, Olly Murs and Damian Lewis.
