Barcelona have managed to have the weirdest, and possibly funniest, penalty shoot-out ever during their pre-season training camp at the England training complex in Burton.
Jordi Alba and Rafinha had a bit of leisure time on their hands following a little workout session and decided to make the most of the facilities and equipment, though not as they were originally made for.
After the Camp Nou pair had had enough of doing core work on those large gym balls, they decided to set up their own mini showdown in the indoor pitch. Straight shoot-out, penalty kicks, both having a go in goal, winner takes all.
Granted, GMS has no idea if there was anything at stake for the winner to take all of, but Alba and Rafinha certainly seemed to be enjoying themselves during their little muck around.
The video below doesn't really make it clear who actually won the shoot-out - Rafinha did celebrate with his shirt over his head at one point, but they took a few more kicks after than so we're not sure.
As one can imagine, the regular trajectory of a normal football is a little different to that of a giant bouncy inflatable rubber ball about ten times the size are a little different, so there were a few dodgy pens thrown in.
Anyway, you can see for yourself below - the weirdest penalty shoot-out ever starts at about three minutes in...
What did you think of this HILARIOUS little episode on the pre-season of Barcelona?
