Dwayne Johnson looked to the U.K. for his Halloween inspiration this year.

The actor, 51, dressed up as former soccer player David Beckham for Tuesday’s festivities. He wore a long blonde wig and a jersey from the sports star’s days at Manchester United Football Club in England.

Beckham, 48, shared a carousel of snaps of Johnson in the outfit alongside the caption, “And the winner is @therock 🎃 looking good man I know what I’m going as next year 💪🏼 😃.”

In the first image, Johnson looked away from the camera in black sunglasses and the red soccer jersey. He sported a black and white headband as he showed off the back of his jersey, which read “Beckham 7,” in the second slide.
