Daniella and Richie on ball for five-a-side world record

FORMER Irish soccer international Richie Sadlier got togged out with model Daniella Moyles to kick off Sodexo Ireland's charity fundraising drive.

Employees at the Irish firm aim to raise €20,000 for three charities by smashing the Guinness World Record for the longest five-a-side football game.

Volunteers will play for 55 hours non-stop between June 21 and 23 in Portlaoise.

The gruelling five-a-side takes place in St Mary's Community College in Portlaoise from 10am on Friday, 21 June to 5pm on Sunday 23 June 2013.
