It was school yard antics all over again at the Niall Horan Charity Football Challenge, as Harry Styles ‘pantsed’ Piers Morgan.

Sport legends and entertainment stars alike got kitted-up for a good cause as they took part in a football match in Leicester City Football club.

Mullingar native Niall was benched due to an injury, but had enlisted a dream team of singers, funnymen and soccer aces including his One Direction bandmates, Olly Murs, James Cordon, John Bishop, Jason McAteer, Phil Neville and Robbie Fowler.

Cheeky chappy Harry was caught on video pulling down rival team manager Piers Morgan’s shorts as he stood on the sideline.

However, Morgan appeared unfazed at flashing his jocks, even retweeting a Vine video of the incident.

He subsequently tweeted:



The amicable rivalry between the teams was obvious, with Niall tweeting a picture of himself and Piers in their Adidas Originals tracksuits with the caption “Idiot”.

Niall later posted:



Harry Styles scored the only goal for Niall’s team, leading to a result of 1-1, before his team was defeated in a penalty decider.

More than 10,000 tickets were sold for the match and the proceeds will go to Irish Autism Action, and UK charity, Heart and Minds Challenge.
