Gunners legend Ian Wright to roll back the years to lead the Arsenal attack in a charity game.
Arsenal fans’ favourite Ian Wright will once again put on the Gunners shirt tomorrow when he plays for the club in a charity game.
The charity match will see an Arsenal Legends XI take on a World Refugee XI at the Underhill, former home of Blue Square Premier newcomers Barnet, with all money raised going to the UN refugee agency.
The game has been organised by club legend Tony Adams and actor Tom Watt, with the match being played to mark World Refugee Day which took place earlier this week.
49-year-old Wright, who is the second highest goalscorer in Arsenal history with 185 goals, is joined in the legends team by former full-backs Nigel Winterburn and Lauren, as well as the famous title-winning goalscorer from 1989, Michael Thomas. The team will be managed by double Olympic gold medallist and Gunners fan Mo Farah.
The World Refugee XI will be managed by former Arsenal trainee Fabrice Muamba, who retired from football during the season due to health problems.
Recently retired Premier League Mark Halsey will take charge of the game, which gets underway at 4pm.
