As the World Cup creeps towards the closing stages, a children’s charity is auctioning memorabilia signed by some of the greats to have graced the tournament down the years.
East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) is hoping the auction will help boost their funds and support their continued work helping children with life-threatening conditions.
Among the items up for sale is a photo of one of the greatest players of all time, signed by the man himself - Brazil’s legendary number 10, Pelé.
EACH also has a photo of the iconic save pulled off by England goalkeeper Gordon Banks against the Brazil legend, signed by the heroic shot-stopper.
For big Banks fans the charity also has a yellow England goalkeeper jersey signed by the man.
Former Dutch goal-scoring virtuoso Patrick Kluivert’s signed Barcelona shirt is also up for grabs.
The auction is being held online at www.sellebrity.org.uk/live-auctions and closes at 7pm on Thursday.
