VIDEO: FA legends see off Army XI to win friendly

Goals from Tore Andre Flo, Kevin Kilbane, Ben Shepherd and Jan Age Fjortoft gave an FA 'Legends' side a 4-2 win over the Army FA at Reading's Madejski Stadium.

The Army side, coached by England Under-21 Head Coach Stuart Pearce, twice went ahead against Roy Hodgson's team of predominantly retired players.

However, the Legends battled back to secure a win in a match which helped raise funds for the Team Army Sports Foundation and the Royal British Legion, while it also helped mark 125 years of the Army FA.
