Martin Compston confesses 'becoming a dad' changed his passion for Soccer Aid

The 38-year-old is gearing up to take part in this year’s Soccer Aid on Sunday, where he will be starring in the 11th charity match alongside fellow celebrities and some of football’s living legends, including comedian Lee Mack, Tom Grennan, Usain Bolt and Sir Mo Farah, who will all be returning.
