It’s going to be the boyband battle of the decade as former Westlife star Nicky Byrne is gearing up to take on One Direction’s Louis Tomlinson – for a charity football match that is.
The Irish Eurovision hopeful is set to play in the star-studded Soccer Aid 2016 game on June 5 at Old Trafford in Manchester.
According to The Sun, Nicky will team up with fiery TV chef Gordon Ramsay and Masters of Sex actor and team captain Martin Sheen amongst others for the charity clash in aid of Unicef.
