If you’re friends with David Beckham, you have to be willing to drop everything and play a quick game of soccer – even if you’re a world famous pop star.

Beckham shared a star-studded photo to his Instagram account on Friday of a “kick around with mates” in preparation for an upcoming charity soccer match.

“Nice way to warm up before the big game,” Beckham, 40, captioned the photo, which shows his son Brooklyn, 16, crouching beside Becks, and One Direction member Harry Styles standing behind them.

The UNICEF Match for Children will be on Nov. 14 and will mark Beckham’s first time playing an official match since his retirement in 2013. The game will take place at Old Trafford field, home of the Manchester United team whom Beckham played with until 2003. The UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador and father of four announced his return to the field with an Instagram post earlier this week.

Styles and Beckham have become good friends over the years: They attended a play together in London’s West End in 2013 and David was invited to the boy-bander’s 21st birthday earlier this year.
