Today in Charlotte, the global game faced off against the original American sport. Three Liverpool FC players – Glen Johnson, Kolo Toure and Suso – took a break from preparing to face AC Milan to learn Lacrosse.
The Liverpool stars were joined by three players from Major League Lacrosse – Kyle Hartzell, Josh Hawkins and Mike Sawyer. Together they took part in a lacrosse/soccer skills challenge. Johnson, Toure and Suso were stunned as the lacrosse players showed off their 100 mph+ shooting skills; no-one volunteered to play goalie!

To their credit, the Liverpool stars are quick learners and were soon peppering the net with well-placed shots. Are you a two-sport athlete? What other sports do you think soccer players are best at?
