One Direction Drop in on Newcastle United Football Training Session

One Direction

One Direction can sing, dance and make the ladies swoon, but who knew they had soccer skills to boot! The boys (minus Zayn), were added to the Newcastle United Football Club roster for the day and showed off some of their fancy footwork… and we aren’t talking about their dance moves!

According to The Daily Mail, 1D played the battle-hardened NUFC footballers in a match, but unfortunately came up short despite a formidable performance by Niall Horan. The guys enjoyed lunch with the footballers with Niall saying, “‘It was brilliant to be here. We’d like to thank the club and Alan Pardew (NUFC manager) for having us down and for getting us involved.” Styles added, “It was good fun coming out to have a look around and to meet the staff and players. We don’t really get chance to come out and play — especially 11-a-side — so we really enjoyed it.” Such manners on these boys!

Hazza really wanted to make his trip authentic and took an ice bath like many professional athletes do tweeting:

The guys posed for pictures with NUFC players Ryan Taylor and Danny Simpson, who are both a sight for sore eyes. Yowza! They are giving the 1D boys a run for their money in the looks department! We need to start watching more NUFC games, that’s for sure!
