Cooper Tire Europe tested the reaction speeds and accuracy of the squad in the tyre manufacturer’s latest contest, the Cooper Tire Reaction Challenge.
Midfielders Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Mesut Ozil lined-up alongside defender Shkodran Mustafi, each with a chance to prove their dead ball accuracy under pressure.
They were asked to kick a ball through a custom-made wall of Cooper Zeon 4XS Sport tyres, hung within the goal mouth, with the tyres lighting up in a random sequence – requiring the players to react and aim for each tyre as it illuminated.
Ozil triumphed on the day, with five shots on target through the tyres. Watch the full film here, and see how the players get on with their weaker foot:
As our Official Tyre Partner, Cooper is known for its long-standing series of player challenges which are created especially for the fans.
Cooper Tire Europe Marketing Communications Manager, Sarah McRoberts, said, “Congratulations to Mesut Ozil on winning our latest player test. He has now featured in three of our films and has proven to be a master of accuracy when it comes to the Cooper Tire Reaction Challenge.”
