Pop star Ed Sheeran missed an open goal on the pitch at Allianz Parque in São Paulo, the home of Brazilian giants Palmeiras.

Luiz Felipe Scolari’s side recently won their tenth top-flight title, so it’s fair to say that Sheeran’s fluffed effort failed to live up to its surroundings.

Making light of his own miss, Sheeran jokingly asked Real Madrid to sign him up.

He had just played back-to-back sold-out shows at the stadium when he was treated to a birthday game with his friends against a team of locals.

Despite making a hash of converting a low cross into an unguarded net in this clip, Sheeran did manage some goals on the day.

He wrote on Instagram:

So for my birthday @moveconcertsbrasil organised a game at the stadium we played the last two nights, with me and my mates versus a load of Brazilian players.

We were terrible but it was such a fun experience. I scored a few but I think the goalie was just being nice. Such a lovely day.

Thank you Phil and the team for setting it up x
