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?).
