Jamie Carragher sent Lewis Hamilton flying in 5-a-side game in final s *** house move
Lewis Hamilton had the chance to fulfill his dream of playing football with some of the club’s legends in a 5-a-side game in 2015.
Hamilton, an Arsenal fan, led the line in a squad made up of Robert Pires, Sol Campbell and Ray Parlor.
The opposition was led by Thierry Henry and included legends such as Jamie Carragher, Jamie Redknapp and Paul Merson.
And although the match was a friendly match, Carragher certainly didn’t hold anything back from the contest.
At one point in the game, the Liverpool legend let Hamilton know he was there when he sent the F1 legend to the boards with a challenge.
Presenter Natalie Pinkham jokingly asked Carragher about the full-time incident.
She said: “You’ve gotten pretty physical with Lewis there. You don’t mind knocking him out for the Monaco Grand Prix?”
To which Carragher replied: âNo, no. He came here to play football. You have to play hard with us now, not the Monaco Grand Prix.
âHe had his shin guards on so I think he knew what to expect. But he did very well. A good game to play. He’s strong enough! Even though I tried to leave one on him, I think I hurt myself a bit!

Hamilton’s side thought they had won the game late in the game when Parlor’s efforts gave them the 5-4 advantage, but Henry’s side tied the last to bring the score to 5-5 and send the match on penalties.
Henry’s side ultimately won it by sudden death after Carlo Cudicini saved Soccer star AM Tubes’ decisive penalty.
Hamilton finished third in the Monaco GP behind Nico Rosberg and Sebastian Vettel.
But the Mercedes star got his revenge when he was crowned world champion later that year with a 59-point margin over teammate Rosberg.
