Usually Arsenal players are hailed for their ability on the ball and flawless technique, but a recent bit on EuroSport reveals that even that won’t help you embarass your ancestors in the legendary “Crossbar Challenge”.
Taking pot shots from the halfway line, such luminaries as Cesc Fabregas and William Gallas failed to hit the target while Theo Walcott, Senderos and Alexandre Song’s efforts should have seen them sacked immediately by the watching Arsene Wenger. Admittedly some of the club’s most technical players like Tomas Rosicky, Robin van Persie and
Thierry Henry Alexandre Hleb were conspicuous by their absence.
One Arsenal player did rise to the challenge – pat on the back for reserve goalkeeper Manuel Almunia!
