Video: Everton stars prove their bottle in crossbar challenge

by Up Front

Watch as Everton stars Phil Jagielka and Ross Barkley take part in a training ground contest designed to test their bottle.

The Blues captain and his 20-year-old teammate turned out to compete in the Chang Beer Crossbar Challenge at Everton FC’s Finch Farm training ground. The challenge involved kicking a ball from the halfway line, hitting the crossbar and causing a plastic beer bottle perched on top to fall to the ground.

So who fared better? The veteran defender with 24 England caps to his name or the fresh-faced midfielder, tipped by some to be the next Wayne Rooney? One thing’s for sure, no metatarsals were harmed during the making of this video. And for that, the entire nation can be thankful.

Premium Thai lager, Chang Beer, has been the proud sponsor of Everton FC for ten years. Follow the brand on Instagram or Twitter @ChangBeerUK.
