Jamie Carragher has been blasted by fans for his ‘pathetic behaviour’ after he appeared to kick out at former Love Island star Kem Cetinay at Soccer Aid.
Carragher lined up alongside fellow pundit Gary Neville at centre back for England in the charity match at the Etihad Stadium in Manchester on Saturday, but saw his side lose 3-0 against the World XI.
Cetinay, who won the reality series in 2017, played up front for the World XI and scored twice to help his team secure a comfortable 3-0 victory – comedian Lee Mack scoring the other – and was named man-of-the-match.

He endured a tough physical battle against former Liverpool and England defender Carragher, 43, but came out on top on several occasions.
And the Reds icon drew supporters’ ire online after seeming to kick out at the 25-year-old in the second half with the score at 1-0 thanks to Kem’s long-range strike.
The pair tussled, and Carragher came away with the ball, but as Cetinay fell over behind him, Carragher seemingly kicked his leg out and it made contact with his opponent’s chest, leaving him sprawled on the floor – and fans were quick to notice.
Fans quickly took to Twitter to criticise Carragher, with one calling him an ‘absolute disgrace’
One said: ‘Kem has bantered Carragher so much to a point where Jamie is throwing a hissy fit on the pitch,’ with another adding: ‘#SoccerAid 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’.
Another continued: ‘WTF… Jamie Carragher literally just smacked Kem in the face when he was through on goal then. What’s his problem?! It’s a charity match mate!’ with a fifth saying: ‘I’m crying Carragher is fighting for his life against a Love Island star’.
