What do you do if you’re a WSL player in isolation? Why keepy-uppies with loo roll of course!
The coveted household staple is now the focus of a meme that is sweeping footballers’ social media after stars found themselves without football to play due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Instead, they are doing #StayAtHomeChallenge, where people try and complete as many keepy-uppies as possible with loo roll instead of a football.
We’ve rounded up some of our favourites from WSL players and beyond.
The group one
When you’re self-isolating with flatmates the only thing to do is to get the whole gang involved! Everton’s Esme Morgan and Manchester City’s Lauren Hemp show how it’s done in their kitchen.
The alternative one
Why do keepy-uppies when you can juggle? Arsenal midfielder Lia Wälti shows off her impressive loo-roll juggling skills and she makes it look easy. We’re impressed!
The workout one
Chelsea forward Ramona Bachmann used the challenge as a chance to get in a couple of extra press-ups. That’s one way to keep up with training while the season is suspended!
The international one
The #StayAtHomeChallenge isn’t just sweeping the UK. French international and Olympique Lyonnais attacking midfielder Eugénie Le Sommer took on the challenge showing off some impressive footwork before kicking the loo roll towards the camera.
The funny one
We can’t stop watching this attempt from Reading FC players Millie Farrow and Maz Pacheco. It’s a complete fail but that’s what makes it great, as does their loud laughter. We all need things to smile about and it doesn’t come much better than this. Better luck next time!
If you give it a try tag us on social media, we’d love to see more!
