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 Manchester City and England winger Raheem Sterling got on.

Much like his national team compatriot Joe Gomez, Raheem had the plush setting of the St George's Park elite training facility with which to test his accuracy skills. Same rules, but will it be the same outcome?

Nearest The Pen premieres every Friday on our YouTube channel - so make sure you're subscribed and hit that notification bell to never miss an episode! Stay tuned as next up to face the challenge is Sterling's City team mate Sergio Aguero.
