The One Direction boys play football in South America

Zayn Malik and Liam Payne are rocking some pretty toned bods.

The One Direction stars showed off their hot arms and midriffs as they signed football shirts topless at Argentina’s La Bombonera stadium on Friday, the home of club Boca Juniors.

The pair had earlier been given the chance to have a kickabout on the pitch with their bandmates Louis Tomlinson and Niall Horan.

Curly-haired heartthrob Harry Styles decided to give the trip a miss. 

The boys were given their own personalised kits before showing off their soccer skills on the grass.

Louis, 22 – who signed for Doncaster Rovers as a non-contract player last August – was seen concentrating as he kicked a ball while Liam, 20, stood in goal.

Despite undergoing major knee surgery in January, 20-year-old Niall managed some keepy-uppys before he and the lads posed with local children.

1D are currently on the South American leg of their Where We Are tour, which will also take them travelling around Europe and North America until October.
