Not a household name here, but Cooper Tires is pretty established in the UK, and in motorsports. The US tyre maker is also the official tyre partner of premier league leaders Arsenal, and these videos leverage on that relationship.

It’s called the Cooper Tires Precision Challenge and it’s not easy; those who play futsal occasionally can attest to that. One needs to strike the ball in and through the Cooper Zeon 4XS Sport – the brand’s latest high performance SUV tyre – which in this second edition of the challenge, is a moving target.

Three players who currently aren’t too busy with EPL matches – Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Mathieu Debuchy and Kieran Gibbs – take the challenge. The Ox jokes that “they’ve 100% requested for” Mesut Ozil, Alexis Sanchez and Santi Cazorla, but he and the two full backs acquitted themselves very well here.

“Did the boss see that?” Ox asks, as Gibbs scored to win the challenge. Maybe these guys should be given set piece duties next! They certainly did better than Ozil, Cazorla and the departed Lukas Podolski in the first edition of the challenge.

“Our philosophy is ‘driven by success’ and what each edition of our Cooper Precision Challenge series demonstrates is how the players are similarly driven by accuracy and excellence. Arsenal’s players never fail to deliver entertaining video content, which we thoroughly enjoy sharing with fans,” said Cooper Tire Europe marketing communications manager, Sarah McRoberts.
