VIDEO: Podolski, Cazorla or Ozil - Who wins Arsenal accuracy challenge?

The Arsenal trio recently took part in an accuracy challenge for tire sponsors Cooper Tires.

Arsenal stars Lukas Podolski, Mesut Ozil and Santi Cazorla recently took part in an accuracy challenge constructed by sponsorship partner, Cooper Tire Europe.

The tire company constructed two challenges for the attacking trio: kick a ball through a single tire hanging front he top-right of the goalmouth, the other to kick a ball through four tires lined up one after the other, hanging from the top-left of the goalmouth. No easy achievement!

Spanish playmaker Santi Cazorla was the only player who managed to accomplish the four tire challenge, but he was then outdone by World Cup winner Lukas Podolski who beat the single tire twice in a row. Unfortunately his fellow country, Ozil, wasn't so lucky, he failed to conquer either of the challenges.

As determined by the tire company the final scores were Podolski 2, Cazorla 1, Ozil 0.

Other Gunners stars also piled in to take not on the challenge but non of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Alexis Sanchez, Jack Wilshere, Aaron Ramsey, Joel Campbell and goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny were able to strike a ball through a few tires!
