Arsenal trio Santi Cazorla, Tomas Rosicky and Wojciech Szczesny entered their own Eurovision contest, renamed by Paddy Power as the ‘Goonervision Song Contest’, the Daily Mail reports.
Since our partnership with the betting company was announced, Paddy Power has instigated some light-hearted promotional stunts and the latest one is quite dull.
Cazorla kicks off the show by beating on a pair of bongo drums whilst dressed in traditional Spanish clothing and the 30-year-old showed some neat footwork – unsurprisingly.
Rosicky, an avid rock fan (via Arsenal Player), took centre stage next and reacquainted himself with the guitar, representing the Czech Republic and the man known as the ‘Little Mozart’ was anything but subtle.

Szczesny closed off the show, calmly placing himself behind a piano while donning his goalkeeper gloves and striking a lovely note on the keys.

As we prepare to face Manchester United this weekend, only Cazorla looks likely to feature out of the ‘Goonervision’ trio and we’ll certainly be hoping that his marvellous footwork is in rare form.
For Szczesny and Rosicky, the frustrated duo should focus on saving their Arsenal careers rather than partaking in cringeworthy promotional campaigns.
