With the participants mostly set for Steven Gerrard’s all-star charity testimonial later this month, Gerrard and opposing team captain Jamie Carragher went about selecting sides today. And with former reds Luis Suarez, Fernando Torres, Dirk Kuyt, Xabi Alonso, and Pepe Reina being joined by the likes of Thierry Henry and Didier Drogba, there were plenty of big names to go around.

It’s perhaps no surprise that Gerrard went heavy on the attackers for his side, and the current Liverpool captain managed to nab all three of Suarez, Torres, and Henry. Carragher, meanwhile, got plenty of fan favourites in his starting lineup with players like Dirk Kuyt, Craig Bellamy, Luis Garcia, and Raul Meireles. There are still a few more names to come, but for now, this is how the two sides will line up on March 29th:

Team Gerrard

Brad Jones
Stephen Warnock, John Terry, John Arne Riise
Ryan Babel, Xabi Alonso, Steven Gerrard, Kevin Nolan
Luis Suarez, Fernando Torres, Thierry Henry

Team Carragher

Pepe Reina
Martin Kelly, Jamie Carragher, Alvaro Arbeloa
Luis Garcia, Raul Meireles, Jonjo Shelvey, Craig Noone
Dirk Kuyt, Didier Drogba, Craig Bellamy
