The Pro:Direct Nearest The Pen Challenge. Pass the ball from the centre spot to the penalty spot, aiming to get the ball to stop as near to the “pen” as possible. Each player gets five attempts, with the closest effort measured and added to the leaderboard. Sounds easy, right? Let’s find out – click play to see how Liverpool and England defender Joe Gomez got on in this first episode of the series.
It was a solid effort from Joe, who looked right at home in the Three Lions of England at St George’s Park. We already know he’s a good passer having watched him for club and country, but it takes another level of confidence to perform under the Pro:Direct spotlight. Will his score be enough to see off the competition and top the final leaderboard? We’ll have to wait and see how his rivals get on. Next up: Raheem Sterling.
