The Lucas Radebe Testimonial
Monday 2nd May 2005 - Elland Road, Leeds

 
England Goalkeeper Paul Robinson picked up an injury whilst playing for Tottenham against Aston Villa the day before, but still came to Elland Road to support his former teammates big day.   Big Sam Allardyce was the Manager for the International XI, he kindly allowed 3 of his Bolton men to play the majority of the match.
 
The players form a circle on the halfway line, awaiting the arrival of Lucas Radebe.   Vinnie Jones replaced Gordon Strachan as captain after 33 minutes and dished out many crunching tackles in his performance.
 
At half-time, Vinnie went in goal to face penalties from the winner of an ebay auction, John Bradley from Radio Aire, Leeds Legend Peter Lorimer and Lucas Radebe.   Lucas' half-time penalty success against Vinnie Jones had him well prepared as he slotted another one home again Neil Sullivan in the second half
 
After 66 minutes, Gary Speed was replaced by Leeds Ladies star Lucy Ward. The fans comically chanted "There's only one Robbie Savage" and
"10 men, we've only got 10 men"
Instantly Lucy was put through on goal (although at least 10 yards offside) and she slotted past Grobbelaar. Vinne Jones enjoyed jumping on top of her during the celebration
 
In all his years of football, I doubt Lucas would ever have imagined he'd be marking a girl at Elland Road.   During this action, a familiar face was warming up right in front of us.
 
After making a great impact from the bench with a great run and subsequent cross down the right flank, Chris Kamara had to endure a chant of "What the f#cking hell was that?" following a poor crossfield ball.
This also led to "There's only one Lionel Richie"
  Lucy Ward embraces Matthew Kilgallon as her lovely ball put him clean though to delicately chip Bruce Grobbelaar
