Tottenham Hotspur’s Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Sergio Reguilon, Ben Davies and Lucas Moura were recently put through their paces as they were shown in a video where they were having their NFL knowledge be tested in a mini-quiz with Betway.
Some will already know that American Football takes place in the UK each year with a couple of games being played in the London Games, with the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium playing host to a handful of those each year due to agreements that have been made.
Of course, with this in mind, it seemed only right to see if some of the Spurs players had been taking in any of the action that takes place at their stadium and to see if the sport may have had an impact on them.
Indeed, Tottenham’s video with Betway certainly showed that two of them knew what they were talking about when they had their knowledge tested, whilst it was rather evident that the other two did not quite know as much when it came down to this variation of football.
Over the three rounds that were competed, Davies and Moura managed to edge out as 12-11 winners – which surprised the Welshman at the end – although if he were to watch back, then perhaps he would not be as shocked as he initially seemed.
The three rounds that were competed were:
- Round 1 featured a game of charades
- Round 2 was a round that looked to test the players’ knowledge regarding certain NFL jargon
- Round 3 was a geography-based game where they had to place the teams on a map
A game of charades saw Reguilon and Hojbjerg actually begin strongly, although that may have been down to the Spaniard’s performance when acting out the team names for his partner to guess correctly. His actions regarding the Cowboys and Dolphins could be considered to be rather impressive.
Moura was then tasked to provide the teams for Davis to guess, and they did rather well, too, although they were unable to get a point for the Baltimore Ravens.
Round 2 actually separated the two teams as it highlighted just who the biggest fans of the NFL were in this competition.
The two teams were given a number of American Football terms that they had to define and it was evident that Davis and Moura knew what they were talking about from the beginning. The same could not be said about the other duo, as they both guessed and failed, badly.
Round 3 saw the teams being required to place the NFL teams on a blank map of the USA, thus testing their geography skills at the same time.
