Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard and former team-mate Jamie Carragher will captain an All-Star charity match at Anfield later this month, with a host of star players taking the field.

Former Reds stars Luis Suarez, Xabi Alonso and Luis Garcia will play alongside the likes of John Terry, Thierry Henry and Didier Drogba as the two teams raise funds for the Liverpool FC Foundation, to help thousands of people around Merseyside.

Tickets have already sold out for the game and Gerrard and Carragher selected their teams this afternoon, taking it in turns to select players from the 22-man pool.

But how did the teams shape up? Liverpool released a video on their YouTube channel to show how the two captains shaped their teams.



Steven Gerrard XI: Brad Jones; Stephen Warnock, John Terry, John Arne Riise, Xabi Alonso, Steven Gerrard, Kevin Nolan, Ryan Babel, Thierry Henry, Luis Suarez, Fernando Torres.

Jamie Carragher XI: Pepe Reina, Martin Kelly, Alvaro Arbeloa, Jamie Carragher, Luis Garcia, Raul Meireles, Jonjo Shelvey, Jamie Noone, Craig Bellamy, Didier Drogba, Dirk Kuyt.

Gerrard's team is certainly looking stronger on paper...
