Ruben Loftus-Cheek vs. Nathaniel Chalobah kicking accuracy challenge

New, comments

Hey, look! More fun content from Chelsea's official YouTube page! This season just continue to amaze.

Chelsea are calling this "Can You Kick It?" and this is episode 1 of an unknown number to come. At least two, judging by this video, though perhaps there are future challenges in store for these (and/or other) players, too.

This challenge involves kicking a ball from the half-way line towards a stack of cans placed on the penalty spot. Each player gets 10 tries, and all he has to do is hit just one can for the try to be successful.

The first two contestants are Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Nathaniel Chalobah, with Ola Aina and Dominic Solanke providing support, encouragement, and banter. Both RLC and Chalobae are surprisingly bad at this, and while the latter does end up winning the challenge, he ends up winning by just the tiniest of margins.

Did no one think to just simply pass the ball towards the stack? It's not like you have to hit it hard!
