Footballers take the Stay at Home Challenge

Perhaps that’s why there’s been a shortage of toilet paper.

Sports across the world have been disrupted due to the coronavirus pandemic. With all the extra time, some footballers have done the #StayAtHomeChallenge, showing off their footballing (toilet-paper-balling?) skills while maintaining appropriate social distance (as we all should be).

Anyone can participate. All you need is a roll of toilet paper and a bit of skill. The goal is to do as many kick-ups as possible, kick the roll away, and nominate someone(s) else to take the challenge.

Here’s a look at just some of the footballers taking part in the Stay at Home Challenge — we’ll start with the Arsenal-related ones:

Some players have gotten creative and used stuffed animals and even hockey sticks to take on this new viral sensation.

Of course, there are many people throughout the world posting their own versions of the Stay at Home Challenge. This one caught my eye. Maybe one day this kid will be leading the midfield for Arsenal. It definitely looks like he’s got skills.

Stay safe. Wash your hands and don’t hoard toilet paper!
