Last week, Matt Cardle met Peter Crouch when he visited the Spurs training ground. This week, another X-Factor act of considerably lower calibre, One Direction, went to the England vs France friendly, wherein a certain Mr. Peter Crouch scored England's only goal of the game (oh yes, trust me to bung that in). Then the boys went and met the England players and got their photos taken with Steven Gerrard and Rio Ferdinand, and they all lived happily ever after. Photos, and a video of the boys not knowing much about football: -

Steven Gerrard: My two little girls love you. They want you to win
One Direction: Yeah? Aww!
Steven Gerrard: Well, I wont lie. I’m supporting Rebecca
One Direction: *giggles* Can’t blame you!
Steven Gerrard: I’m from Liverpool, you know

Niall - Derby
Harry, Malik & Louis - Manchester United
Liam - Arsenal

I think for that alone, I ought to be allowed to treat/trick you all with an example of just how ~~original~~ Cheryl Cole's crybaby protege is:
