Ever wondered how our players would fare in a penalty shoot-out...blindfolded?!

Penalties with a difference!

Ever wondered how our players would fare in a penalty shoot-out...blindfolded?!

Peter Crouch, Aaron Lennon, Younes Kaboul, Wilson Palacios, Benoit Assou-Ekotto, Seb Bassong and Gareth Bale tried their hand at exactly that recently - with some hilarious results!

It was part of an online competition run by Mandeville, the London 2012 Paralympic mascot, to celebrate two years to go until the London 2012 Paralympic Games.

People of all ages have the chance to win £200 worth of merchandise from the London 2012 online shop by following in our players' footsteps by taking a penalty blindfolded - like a Paralympic 5-a-side Footballer.

All you have to do is send your best pictures or videos of you, your friends and family taking a penalty kick while blindfolded to www.london2012.com/mascots, where you can find more information about the competition.

The video of our lads taken part is now available to view on YouTube...

The competition closes on 30 September so find some time between now and then, and give it a try like we did! Full details of the competition can be found on the London 2012 mascot website.
