first_imgOne Direction’s Niall Horan has told talkSPORT of an ‘unbelievable’ moment during training for Soccer Aid.The 22-year-old Irishman is part of the Rest of the World team to face England at Old Trafford on Sunday.Both teams will be made up of a mixture of ex-pros and celebrities and Horan admits to being star struck by some former footballers in training.“It’s absolutely ridiculous,” Horan told Hawksbee and Jacobs.  “On the first day we were doing small possession boxes and there were two yellow bibs, everyone else blue. It was me and the other person was Cafu.“I remember saying ‘Cafu! Cafu!’ and he passed the ball to me. I stopped and I remember saying out loud: ‘I never thought in my wildest of dreams that I’d receive a pass from Cafu.’“It was unbelievable and it was the same with [ex-Manchester United defender] Jaap Stam.”Leicester City manager Claudio Ranieri will be in charge of the Rest of the World team and Horan has seen some of his title-winning methods at hand.He continued: “Ranieri arrived today because he was in Italy – I think getting some sort of knighthood!“[Before] we were being coached by Craig Shakespeare, who was Ranieri’s assistant with Stevie Walsh [this season].“Our sessions have been really intense and you get a feeling of what they are about, but Ranieri arrived today.“We were working on a bit of shape and I was on the wing and he was working with me. He was bringing me through the shape and giving a good insight of how to play on the wing which was really good.“He was very involved when he came in, whistle in hand, shouting analogies and he was brilliant.”last_img
