Harry Styles Plays Soccer With David And Brooklyn Beckham — SEE PHOTOS!
The trio were accompanied by nearly a dozen other friends and divided into teams for the match. While it’s not clear which side won, Styles actually played against the father and son. “Fun night with these lads,” Brooklyn wrote on Instagram afterward, sharing a black and white group photo.
David posted the same snapshot in color, with the caption, “Nice way to warm up before the big game at Old Trafford … Can’t beat a kick around with mates…” The retired soccer legend recently announced he’ll participate in a UNICEF charity game next month. He’ll be a captain of a team consisting of British and Irish players.
“I retired two years ago and I never thought I would be playing again, but it’s for a good cause so I’m excited about it,” David said during the announcement earlier this month. “It’s always emotional going back to [Old Trafford].”
However rusty he may be, a match with Styles certainly seems a good way to practice. The One Direction heartthrob is actually no stranger to the football pitch. As Gossip Cop has reported, Styles has played in a number of games in recent years, and memorably scored two goals last year in addition to pulling down Piers Morgan’s pants during band mate Niall Horan’s charity match.
Styles has been friends with the Beckham family for a while now, and Gossip Cop even corrected a false National Enquirer story back in 2012 that wrongly claimed David hated One Direction after they supposedly “blew off” a day of soccer with the Los Angeles Galaxy. Clearly everyone gets along just fine. See the new pictures below!
