Liam Gallagher plays in star-studded Italian football match for charity
Former Oasis star Liam Gallagher is used to playing in front of stadium-sized crowds, but his trademark sweary swagger is not quite suited to a left back role in top-class football.
But for the Italian equivalent of Soccer Aid on Tuesday night, that was exactly where the Definitely, Maybe singer was, tucked in behind legendary Czech Republic winger Pavel Nedved at the Juventus Stadium.
Juventus legend Alessandro Del Piero and their manager who has led them to Saturday's Champions League final, Massimiliano Allegri, were also part of a side that took on an XI of Italian musicians for charity.

Research for Cancer XI (4-4-1-1): Bocci; Allegri, Agnelli, Giletti, Gallagher; Lorenzo, Elkann, Dovizioso, Nedved; Ramazzotti; Del Piero.
Forming part of a star-studden Wonderwall of players for the pre-match national anthem, Gallagher looked delighted to be taking part alongside Allegri.
But after just 20 minutes the 42-year-old succumbed to The Importance of Being Idle and was substituted.
And Gallagher admitted that he did not quite have the stamina to keep up with the likes of Champions League winners Nedved and Del Piero.
'They have something like this but I never get invited to it,' he said. 'Probably because I’m rubbish. They have a Soccer Aid thing, yeah.'
