Football has given me everything.

Now that my professional career

is over,

it's never been more important

to me to give something back...

so I've organised a major

initiative for my charitable fund,

ending in a game at Old Trafford.

But before the match here

in ten days,

I want to be first person to play a

game of football on every continent.

On my travels,

I hope to visit people in some of

the most challenging environments.

I want to see how

the power of football

can unite people around the world.

(CHEERING)

(DOORBELL RINGS)

'Joining me on the trip are two of

my oldest friends, Simon and Dave.'

- Morning.

- Morning.

Morning, morning.

'They work with me closely

and I trust them completely.

'Well, most of the time anyway.'

Is the chef working today?

I can't believe you called

Victoria "the chef."

I'm actually looking forward to...

each place and each game

for different reasons.

Obviously, the rainforest...

I've never played in

a rainforest before.

Well, you don't

have to worry about...

More importantly, you don't

have to worry about an egg for me.

- You're not having egg? - No.

- Why didn't you tell me that before I...?

I got one slice of bacon

so you might have to have an egg.

No, you have no choice

if I'm doing it.

- You'll be eating bread.

- Can you cut around the whites?

I know you're looking forward

to Buenos Aires.

I'm excited about Buenos Aires.

- You haven't been to Buenos Aires before then?

- No.

Are you slightly worried

about going there

in the sense of the reaction

you'll get?

Actually, up until right this minute,

I hadn't even thought about that.

Buenos Aires to the Antarctic,

which is a bold move.

A bit of a silly question here.

What do you wear when you're

playing football on ice?

It'll have to be snow boots.

- It's going to have to be snow boots.

- Or skates. Can you skate?

We are in the lap of the gods.

If we can't get there, which

nobody has been able to get there

for the last few weeks,

it ain't going to happen.

We could always recreate it and

go to London Zoo in the penguin bit

and just walk past, kick a ball

and walk out of London Zoo.

No-one knows.

Can you keep a secret?

What next?

Better get some sleep.

I have just ten days to play

a match on all seven continents.

I'll be visiting places

where people are being helped

by various charities,

including my own "7" fund.

I will see how football

is helping to transform lives.

From Papa New Guinea to Nepal,

Djibouti, Argentina,

Antarctica, Miami

and then finally back to Manchester.

To achieve this,

every single part of the trip

needs to go like clockwork.

Starting with an 18-hour flight

to my first stop, Australasia.

MUSIC:
Movin' On Up

by Primal Scream

Papua New Guinea, I have heard

such great things about the place

and the people.

Ready when you are.

What if they boo?

I shouldn't think

they're going to boo.

(CHEERING)

I was blind

Now I can see...

- David, welcome to Papua New Guinea...

- Thank you.

I am the minister for sports

and national events.

- Thank you very much.

- Thank you for having me. Thank you.

I was blind

Now I can see

You made a believer

Out of me

I'm moving on up now...

- Welcome to Papua New Guinea.

- Thank you.

Out of the darkness

My light shines on

My light shines on

My light shines on...

When we used to travel with

Man United and Real Madrid,

we always used to

have amazing welcomes

every time that we landed somewhere.

So, obviously,

since I've stopped playing,

I don't tend to get too many welcomes

like that, to be honest.
