Arsenal hero v free-kick machine – who wins?

Football News

Paul Merson was a rather handy player during the late 1980s, 1990s and early 2000s.

The former England midfielder is best known for his 12-year spell at Arsenal, while he's now a familiar face on television as one of the panelists on the popular Sky Sports show Soccer Saturday.

Merson also co-presents The Fantasy Football Club – and this week he was involved in a very interesting challenge.

The 45-year-old took on a machine in a free-kick competition. The goalkeeper was former Wolves' star Matt Murray who, it's fair to say, had his work cut out but made some top saves against both Merse and machine.

But who won the competition, I hear you ask.

Well, we don't want to ruin the surprise, so click play on the video at the top of the page and enjoy!
