Hollywood star Will Ferrell and celebrity chef Gordon Ramsey were both injured while playing in a charity soccer game in England on Sunday.  In what was supposed to be a friendly match, both celebrities got a little roughed up.

Funnyman Ferrell wasn't smiling and in visible pain as he limped off the field with a leg injury while Ramsey was carted  to the sideline on a stretcher like an overcooked steak while receiving oxygen after being leveled by former Manchester United star Teddy Sherington during the second half.

Both celebrities were participating in the celebrity sporting event Soccer Aid.  England ended up beating the "Rest of the World," 3-1, in Manchester, England.



The foul-mouthed, bullying Ramsey and Ferrell— the star of "Kicking and Screaming" (remember that soccer classic?)  were teammates on The Rest of the World team whose film industry roster included Woody Harrelson, Mike Myers, Gerard Butler and Edward Norton along with a sprinkling of former soccer stars.

Ramsey was later released from the hospital after Sherington flattened the chef like a bad souffle.



The event was the brainchild of singer Robbie Williams and raised $6.4 million for the charity UNICEF.
