Easy for the first-teamers – Patrice Evra, David De Gea and Darren Fletcher – you would have thought. But the legends and coaches more than held their own, as our video shows.
Evra, who began by suggesting Quinton Fortune’s head replaced one of the robin’s, later called for a stewards’ enquiry after a controversial attempt by Rene Meulensteen.
Meanwhile, after successfully hitting a robin (much to the chagrin of Evra and co.), fitness coach Tony Strudwick simply declared: “Football is a science.”
