A number of Arsenal players were brought in to be interviewed by a handful of junior Gooners, but had no idea they’d be pranked by the young Arsenal fans.
Jack Wilshere, Calum Chambers, and Hector Bellerin were all trolled brilliantly by the youngsters, but Per Mertesacker proved slightly more difficult to get one over on.
The interviewers opened the discussions by making things incredibly awkward, acting disappointed at the player they’d been assigned, and instead asking for the likes of Aaron Ramsey and Mesut Özil. Jack Wilshere in particular looked thoroughly pissed off when he was asked to make way for the German playmaker.
The youngsters then began asking a series of bizarre and tricky questions, ranging from, “How do you say goal in Welsh?” to “What is the capital of Namibia?”.
Chambers, Bellerin, and Wilshere were all left confused, with blank expressions on their faces as they admitted to knowing none of the answers. Mertesacker turned the tables though, answering several of the questions correctly.
The junior Gunners looked shocked and impressed when the giant German correctly answered that Arsenal was founded in 1886, and there was even more bewilderment when after a short pause he accurately revealed that Windhoek was the capital of Namibia.

All the players remained professional, despite the ridiculous nature of the interview. Jack got a little sarcastic towards the end, but can you blame him?
