Arsenal youngster Krystian Bielik is certainly a player blessed with physical power, but it seems he also has a deft touch to go along with his stature.
With our Under-19 side undergoing a crossbar challenge with a rabona twist, it was the likes of Alex Iwobi, Dan Crowley and Bielik who were competing for the bragging rights, with the latter reigning supreme.
Bielik smashed the crossbar with his final effort and was the only player out of the participants to succeed – albeit after a handful of attempts.
Signed from Legia Warsaw in January, Bielik was expected to make an immediate impact upon his arrival given his sheer size, but the holding midfielder spent last season with the U21s.

The fact that the Polish youngster trains on a regular basis with the senior players suggests that Arsene Wenger still rates him. After all, the boss very rarely shells out £2.4m on a 17-year-old (via BBC Sport), so must be determined to see his signing prove value for money.
