Prince Harry showed off his athleticism during a five-aside soccer game in Auckland, New Zealand, over the weekend.

Harry joined players from New Zealand’s U-20 team, which will compete at the 2015 FIFA U-20 World Cup that will take place in the country later this month. Harry, who was there to help highlight the upcoming sporting event, proved his skills on the field, even scoring the winning goal.

Harry arrived in New Zealand May 9, and attended events in Wellington, Invercargill, Stewart Island, Christchurch, Linton and Whanganui in addition to Auckland. In the country’s more remote regions, he met and spoke with the indigenous Maori and people of Putiki marae (below).

When asked to pick his favorite part of the trip on Saturday, his last day in New Zealand, the prince, who greatly enjoyed his time there, was at a loss.

“I think it’s unfair to put a highlight on such an amazing trip. It has been fantastic. The welcome that I’ve had has been typically Kiwi I suppose. I couldn’t have asked for a better reception,” Harry said. “The whole trip has been epic fun.”
