As viral videos go, this is up there with the best of them.
Walkers, the potato crisps brand whom Gary Lineker fronts, decided to pull off a brilliant stunt the day after England’s friendly international with Egypt. Looking to promote their new “Sandwich” brand, the team headed to the town of Sandwich in Kent and surprised a local school with their stunt.
Gary Lineker interrupted the group of youngsters as they were hearing about their drills before their training session, and after a little banter in the changing room they all headed out to the pitch. Frank Lampard, who had played at Wembley the night before, then shocked the starstruck kids and coaches by turning up on the pitch too, and soon a 5-a-side game was underway.
