Hollywood funnyman Will Ferrell and celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay put their bodies on the line for charity as a celebrity-filled soccer friendly in the UK turned ugly. Ferrell limped off the field in considerable pain with a leg injury late in Sunday's annual Soccer Aid game at Manchester United's Old Trafford but will have counted himself more fortunate than Ramsay, who earlier was hospitalized following a heavy challenge. The foul-mouthed "Hell's Kitchen" star was stretchered off the field while receiving oxygen, after being flattened by former England international Teddy Sheringham midway through the second half. He later was released from the hospital. Ferrell and Ramsay were teammates on a Rest of the World team littered with stars and veteran professional players taking on a select England XI for children's charity UNICEF in a contest that eventually raised more than $6.4 million. The film industry was well represented, with Gerard Butler, Woody Harrelson, Mike Myers and Edward Norton all taking the field, though the Three Lions' team of UK celebrities and former internationals prevailed in a 3-1 win.
