In a team that included former professional players such as Brazilian legend Roberto Carlos, former Manchester United men Patrice Evra and Dimitar Berbatov, it was Soccer Aid newbie and social media sensation Noah Beck who caught the eye.
The 21-year-old played the full match for the World XI and produced a commanding midfield performance, showing his range of passing and also scored a fantastic penalty in the first half, tucking his spot kick into the top corner away from the reach of England goalkeeper, David James.
His performance earned praise from former United man David Beckham, who labelled Beck’s performance as “impressive”.
United fans was so impressed with the American’s performance that they took to social media urging the club to sign the TikTok star.
One fan tweeted: “United should be considering Noah Beck after this performance.”
Another fan said: “Can you play as a 6 @noahbeck? Asking on behalf of Manchester United.”
And a third fan tweeted: “I’d take that Noah Beck lad over half United’s midfield if I’m being perfectly honest.”
As it turns out, the social media star had a career in football when he was younger.
He originally played for the SC del Sol club in Phoenix, and he went on to captain the U.S Youth Soccer Olympic Development Program in Arizona between 2014 and 2017.
Having moved to Utah during the final two years of high school, Beck played for the Real Salt Lake Academy and also trained with the first team.
He then went to the University of Portland in 2019 where he was given a scholarship and played in midfield for the Portland Pilots men’s soccer team.
Beck eventually dropped out and moved to social media, now making a name of himself and has become one of TikTok’s fastest growing creators, he has over 33 million followers on the popular platform and also has over 9 million followers on Instagram.
He may have decided against a career as a footballer but he showed during the Soccer Aid match that he for sure has the skills to become a professional.
