Niall Horan and Louis Tomlinson play football with their heads before One Direction's Paris show - watch

One Direction's Take Me Home tour is officially in Europe, with the boys playing their first gig in the French capital of Paris last night to much 'ooh la la'-ing and 'oui oui oui'-ing we imagine.

One wiley fan managed to capture the whole thing on camera, and after some pretty shaky footage featuring a large crowd, a woman in mickey mouse ears and the exhaust pipe of a coach, we finally get to the football part of thing - which starts with Nialler jerking around like he's doing some sort of robotic dance and playing with an imaginary ball for AGES.

Oh, love - what happened to the real thing? Did you eat it? Louis Tomlinson eventually emerges flashing his new bicep tattoo in a delightful little vest, and brings an actual ball with him - which the pair proceed to kick around for quite a while (is it blasphemy to say we got a bit bored?).

Saying that, things got a lot better when the boys started using their heads instead of feet. Watch the video below and see for yourselves.

What do you reckon - love seeing Nialler and Luigi T in action, or reminded of that time your brother made you watch while he attempted to beat his own record of 25 'keepy-uppies'?
