Video: Chelsea players in bizarre football Space Invaders game
At least one Chelsea player has a trophy this season!
Now we know why Chelsea’s title challenge was doomed – the squad were busy trying to beat their top score in this giant footballing version of Space Invaders.
David Luiz, Branislav Ivanovic, Paulo Ferreira and Nicolas Anelka all took on a game of ‘Alien Invaders’. A huge interactive video of the game was beamed on to a 90-foot wall in a warehouse in Battersea, south-west London. And it was Anelka who came out on top as he – perhaps unsurprisingly – proved he had the best accuracy of the quartet.
He said: “It was a funny game, a good game to play and I hope one day I can have a garden big enough for this kind of game.
“The four of us enjoyed it and we were trying to help each other out getting the footballs back but I am happy that I won. The trophy will now sit next to the Premier League medal and all my other trophies!”
