Defender Shkodran Mustafi, and midfielders Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Mesut Özil were asked to kick a ball through a custom-made wall of Cooper Zeon 4XS Sport tyres as part of the Cooper Tire Reaction Challenge, which were hung within the goal mouth and lit up in a random sequence.

Özil triumphed on the day, with five shots on target through the tyres.

Cooper Tire & Rubber Company Europe Ltd is a subsidiary of the Cooper Tire & Rubber Company of Findlay, Ohio, USA. The firm has several manufacturing sites across the globe, including Melksham, England.



Sarah McRoberts, Cooper Tire Europe marketing communications manager, said: “Congratulations to Mesut Özil on winning our latest player test. He has now featured in three of our films and has proven to be a master of accuracy when it comes to the Cooper Tire Reaction Challenge.

“As the end of the season approaches, Cooper wishes Arsenal the best of luck in the club’s remaining games and is looking forward to the 2017-18 Premier League season with the Gunners.”
