Harry And William In Charity Football Game

Prince Harry lunged in with a series of crunching tackles during a charity football game against his brother at Sandringham.

Still sporting the ginger beard he grew for his charity trek to the South Pole, Harry made some rather questionable challenges during the game, which was played on Christmas Eve.

At one point he collided heavily with his older sibling, after sliding in to tackle.

The Princes were playing on opposite teams for the traditional match held between estate workers and locals from the nearby village of Castle Rising.

The Duke of Cambridge discarded the red socks worn by his team for the blue and purple colours of his beloved Aston Villa.

Harry scored the second goal for his team and at one point William was pictured apparently trying to shield himself from a stray shot.

The brothers put aside any differences and hugged each other at the end of the match.

Some 100 spectators turned-out to watch the game, which was drawn 2-2.
