Former Liverpool, Leicester and England striker Emile Heskey has married his Ghanaian fiancee Chantelle Tagoe in a lavish ceremony in Australia.

His Liverpudlian bride, one of the original WAGs who last year coached a wives-and-girlfriends football team for a charity match, posted the several pictures of the ceremony on her Instagram account.

Heskey, 36, is now playing for Australian A-League side the Newcastle Jets.

The striker played for England for more than 10 years, making 62 appearances in which he scored just seven goals.

His finest hour in an England shirt was when he scored in the 5-1 mauling of Germany in Munich.

Heskey started his career at Leicester City before moving to Liverpool, playing more 400 times for the two clubs in total.

After leaving Anfield Heskey spent time with Birmingham City, Wigan Athletic and Aston Villa before eventually moving to Australia. 

He has been derided, sometimes unfairly, throughout his career for his lack of prowess in front of goal and sometimes heavy touch and clumsy demeanour.

However, he was an integral part of the England squad – despite his meagre goal return – and won a cup treble with Liverpool in 2001.
