Emirates Airlines invited AC Milan, Arsenal and Olympique Lyonnais players to spend a good time scoring many creative goals and showcasing their ingenuity during a tour that included Burj Khalifa, Burj Al Arab and the Dubai desert with Arabian Adventures. There was only one drawback, as the players had to aim the ball at a very small goal, 86 centimeters wide, and kick from different distances, angles and terrain, in the face of their fellow players, sometimes even while blindfolded.
Emirates Airlines is presenting the representative performance of the street ball challenge for Olympique Lyonnais, “AC Milan” and Arsenal players through its sites on TikTok, Facebook, YouTube and Instagram platforms. Emirates flight attendants helped launch the challenge, which was inaugurated by Alexandre Lacazette, Corentin Tolisso, Anthony Lopez, Moussa Dembele, Houssem Aouar and Maxence Caqueret of Olympique Lyonnais. In the shadow of the Burj Khalifa, the players demonstrated their skills in sharp shots, footwork, and smart passes with shots that miss and hit in an atmosphere of fun and enjoyment.
Then it was the turn of Arsenal, led by captain Martin Odegaard, Kieran Tierney, Eddie Nketiah and Nathan Butler Oyediji. Players experienced their own version of beach soccer, with Burj Al Arab in the background as they challenged each other’s skills and performed amazing kicks. Challenged Milan players Pierre Kalulu, Cyprien Tatarusanu and Esther Franks in a completely different environment, they try to change the field and score their goals in impressive fashion in the desert of Dubai.
Finally, the players were blindfolded while shooting at the small target. Some of them were amazingly accurate, while others sent their balls aimlessly.
The players of the three teams had spent training sessions in the wonderful atmosphere of the Emirates, and participated in the Dubai Super Cup competitions. Emirates Airlines continues to bring major clubs to the country to compete in unique tournaments, in addition to participating in training camps in preparation for the remainder of the football season. Dubai has become a favorite destination for winter training with world-class training pitches and sports complexes available all year round, as well as a wide range of recreational and cultural attractions for players to visit during their break time. Emirates Airlines continues its efforts to position Dubai as a world-class sports hub and hub for professional sporting events.
