Soccer Aid star Marvin Humes was showing off his sporting skills as the England players completed their last day of training before the charity match on Sunday.

The DJ managed to steal the ball away from Olly Murs during a practise game, as the team prepared to go head-to-head with the World XI team at Old Trafford in Manchester.

It comes after Soccer Aid 2020 was delayed from its usual start date in June due to concerns sparked by the COVID-19 pandemic, with this year’s match being the first in its history to be played behind closed doors.

Last month Kem admitted he came close to pulling out of the matching after tearing his hamstring during training.

He told The Sun: ‘I was pushing myself too hard and one day I heard it pop and I was in agony. It happened about three weeks before the game. 

‘It started bruising up straight away so I knew it was bad. The next day I saw the physio and he said I’d torn it.

His reality star pal, Mark Wright, reportedly suffered a similar fate in 2019 when he tore his hamstring.
