Marvin Humes has admitted his dog has better football skills than him during family kickaround.

The singer, who is dad to daughters Alaia, six and Valentina, three and with a son on the way, with wife Rochelle, was enjoying some exercise with a game of football in the garden when a surprising goal was scored by their dog Ginger.

Marvin uploaded a clip of the game, and captioned it, 'Alaia (top keeper) Ginger (better finisher than me) @socceraid takeover done.'

Marvin was filming a special Soccer Aid takeover on his Instagram after the charity fundraiser was postponed until 2021.

One impressed fan put, 'This is soooo cool! How many tries did it take?' and another wrote, 'Brilliant.. Ginger needs to be called up for England,' and a third put, 'She’s better in goal than Jamie Theakston.'

Alerting his fans to the takeover, Marvin wrote, 'I’m doing a @socceraid takeover today and got inspired behind the decks to make a special Soccer Aid mixtape! Featuring all the big footy songs. Perfect for running or football training and it gave me another excuse to post my @freddieljungberg nutmeg and assist to Kevin Phillips!'
