WATCH: Carl Frampton scores penalty and wins MOTM at George Best charity game

Carl Frampton was back at Windsor Park on Sunday and put in another top display.

The Belfast featherweight fulfilled a dream last August when he stopped Luke Jackson at the football stadium in front of over 20,000 of ‘The Jackal Army’.

Frampton was back at the home of Northern Irish football at the weekend with boots rather than gloves but still impressed.

The 32-year-old was part of the ‘My Tribute’ charity match organised by Callum Best and Selleberity Soccer in memory of the legendary George Best and in aid of the IFA Trust and NACOA.

Wearing the number 5 jersey, Frampton lined out for the Calum Best XI who played to a 4-4 draw with Eastenders actor Jake Wood’s ‘United’ team.

The match would go to penalties, with Frampton, just about, scoring his, but his team would lose out.

Despite the loss, the Tiger’s Bay boxer was still chosen as the man of the match at a game for a good cause which was attended by over 6,000 fans.
