Arsenal players Granit Xhaka, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Hector Bellerin and Shkodran Mustafi have been caught on ConnectedCAM Citroën™ in a ‘nutmeg’ challenge against Lisa Zimouche, the 2014 World Female Panna Champion.
Panna involves a one-on-one contest, in which participants attempt to nutmeg their opponent and retrieve the ball on the other side. It requires skill, technique and patience. The art of Panna has recently become famous due to the widespread coverage of football freestylers such as Séan Garnier and Sofiane Touzani, who regularly post popular freestyle videos online.
Lisa Zimouche is one of the youngest football freestylers in the world, having been named Female Panna World Champion at the age of 15. With over 600,000 followers on Instagram alone, Lisa is already somewhat of an internet sensation with fans taking delight at her ability to embarrass her male counterparts.
In the video, Lisa goes head-to-head with each player. Xhaka survives despite ending up flat on his back, Oxlade-Chamberlain traps the ball between his legs narrowly avoiding defeat before Mustafi is turned inside out with an incredible nutmeg, much to the delight of his teammates.
The footage was caught on ConnectedCAM Citroën™, a technology that made its world premiere on the New Citroën C3 when it went on sale in the UK in January. Featuring a wide-angle HD camera (positioned just behind the rear-view mirror) and a 128GB memory, ConnectedCAM Citroën™ can be used to safely take photos or videos that can be instantly shared via social media using a free app. It also operates as a conventional dashcam in the event of an accident.
