Michael Fassbender looked every bit like a real-life coach on the set of his new film Next Goal Wins in Hawaii on Thursday.

The 42-year-old is stepping into the cleats of Dutch coach Thomas Rongen who was the subject of a 2014 British soccer documentary of the same name.

Rongen led the struggling American Samoa soccer team through many obstacles to find success on the field.

Fassbender, 42, was spotted on a lush green soccer field (or football pitch depending on where you're from) which was serving as the set for the day.

Actors dressed as players from the American Samoa team showed off their impressive soccer skills and high jumps for the scene. 

Michael was dressed for the task at hand wearing warm-up pants and a burgundy T-shirt.

His usually ginger hair has been dyed a platinum ashy blonde to match the white hair of the real coach.
