Mark Noble to bow out at London Stadium in Soccer Aid game
Mark Noble will bow out at the London Stadium in next month's Soccer Aid match, it is revealed.

West Ham United legend Mark Noble will play his final ever game at the London Stadium in next month's Soccer Aid match.

The 35-year-old, who has been with the Hammers for a remarkable 22 years, including 18 as a senior player, announced last year that he would be retiring at the end of the season.

Noble's final game at home was set to be the clash with league leaders Manchester City this Sunday, but now it has been revealed that fans will have one more chance to give him a send-off when he plays for England in the annual charity match.

Harry Redknapp will manage the Three Lions for the fixture, with squad members including Liam Payne, Mo Farah, Damian Lewis, Gary Neville, Jamie Carragher, Joe Cole and Mark Wright.

"I was touched when Soccer Aid for UNICEF invited me to play for England," said Noble.

"Playing for your country is the greatest honour for any professional athlete – and Sunday 12 June will be no different for me, or for my kids who are big Soccer Aid fans!

"Add to that the fact this is for such a special cause and I can't wait to run out in front of 60,000 fans at the London Stadium one last time. It will be an emotional day, for sure – but I want you all to share it. with me."

Noble never earned a senior cap for England during his playing career, although he did represent his country at numerous youth levels, with 47 appearances in total.
