Jamie Carragher Accused Of Kicking Love Island's Kem During Soccer Aid

Jamie Carragher has been blasted by fans after footage emerged that appeared to show him kicking Love Island's Kem Cetinay in the chest during last night's Soccer Aid match.

Carragher lined up alongside his former rival and fellow Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville, as they both played centre-back for an England XI in the charity match at the Etihad Stadium in Manchester on Saturday - although his side lost 3-0 against a World XI.

Cetinay, who won the 2017 edition of Love Island, played up front for the opposing team and was named man of the match after slotting two goals past the former England duo. Comedian Lee Mack bagged a third just before full-time to secure a comfortable victory.

Although Cetinay endured a tough physical battle against the 43-year-old Carragher, having been subbed on at the start of the second half, that didn't stop him from coming out on top on several occasions.

In fact, the ex-Liverpool man became visibly irate at the Love Island star as the game went on, with things coming to a head during a tussle shortly after Kem's first goal, a beautiful long-range strike to put his side up 1-0.

The pair clashed and Carragher came away with the ball, but as Cetinay fell over behind him, Carragher seemingly kicked his leg out and made contact with his opponent's chest, leaving him sprawled on the floor - and fans on Twitter were quick to notice.

One wrote: "Kem has bantered Carragher so much to a point where Jamie is throwing a hissy fit on the pitch."

Another added: "Carragher a disrespectful game and should have been red carded, an absolute disgrace in a charity match."

A third fan tweeted: "Recorded Soccer Aid and just watched it Carragher was embarrassing. Totally lost it 'cause (Tom) Grennan and Kem played well against him. Used to like him but that was pathetic behaviour."

But others saw the bright side, with one Reds fan quipping: "We genuinely should've signed Carragher last season when we had no centre halves," in reference to Liverpool's injury crisis at the back last season.
