VIDEO: Arsenal's Germans beat English in off-pitch challenge

Six Gunners enjoyed a day-out with their sponsor as they attempted to land a double-decker Emirates A380 flight sim.

When it came to successfully landing a double-decker Emirates A380 flight simulator, the difference in calmness, composure and ability between Arsenal's English (Kieran Gibbs, Carl Jenkinson and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain) and the German contingent (Per Mertesacker, Mesut Ozil and Lukas Podolski) could not be more telling than the following two quotes:

Gibbs: Carl burst two tires and the gas masks came down but… yea, other than that…

Oxlade-Chamberlain (interrupting) Other than that!

Gibbs: Yea, other than that it was safe and sound!

*                                       *                                    *

Mertesacker (after landing): That was proper German… German!
