Watford suffered a narrow defeat in their pre-season friendly with Ajax on Thursday but it was Ben Foster who was getting the plaudits off the pitch.

Javi Gracia’s men took the lead through Andre Gray before a second-half equaliser from Donny van de Beek and a last-minute winner from Jurrien Timber wrapped up the win for the Eredivisie champions.

However, while the Hornets nearly came away with an impressive result against the Champions League semi-finalists, it was goalkeeper Foster that stole the show in Austria with a rendition of rapper Dave’s Funky Friday.

While the action took place on the pitch, Foster, who watched from the sidelines, was filmed spitting bars to himself while drawing a few giggles from his team-mates.

The club’s official Twitter account shared the video with the caption: ‘Next stop Glastonbury… See you there, @Santandave1’

Watford were referencing the moment Dave invited a 15-year-old fan up on stage at Glastonbury to perform his hit song ‘Thiago Silva’.

The video went viral as superfan Alex faultlessly performed alongside Dave in front of thousands of festival-goers.

Nathaniel Chalobah, Foster’s team-mate at Vicarage Road, begged Dave to invite the former England international to perform with him.

‘Come get him please,’ Chalobah tweeted.

Foster, 36, may be in the latter stages of his playing career but just may have found his calling once he retires.
