    He's good. He's, uh, like, uh, TV presentator.

    I was going to ask you questions about football but I’ve just realised I need to finish off my homework.

    Can you help me?

    Of course!

    First, you need to put on these to make you feel extra brainy.

    Nice! Is it clip on?

    Olivier, what’s the capital of France?

    Oh come on my friend! It’s Paris, obviously.

    Which country’s famous for making chocolate, watches and cheese?

    Of course, Switzerland.

    (Laughing) I just heard 'cheese and chocolate'!

    Alex, what colours are in the Nigerian flag?

    Green and white.

    I knew you'd know that. Because you're my favourite player.

    Yeah, hey!

    Do any of you know what the longest river in the world is called?

    Longest? I don't know if it's the Nil...

    River Nile?

    I mean, in French we say 'Nil'.

    Oh. River Nil, River Nile. No, it's good.

    I said it first I think, no? So, who is the best?

    Alex.

    (Laughter) I'm his favourite!

    But I said it first.

    Will I look more clever if I do that? Yeah, maybe.

    How do you say, "You must be joking, ref!" in French?

    I need to know the German for "I like playing football more than doing my homework."

    Alex, can you say "I'm going to play for Arsenal forever?"

    In English, or...?

    I'm going to play for Arsenal forever.

    Thanks, I just recorded that so you'll never leave!

    (Laughing)

    If Arsenal score 50 goals in 20 games, how many goals have they scored on average, per game?

    (sound of clock ticking)

    (Laughter)

    It's not 2.5 is it? It's 2.5.

    If Switzerland, where Granit's from, makes 30 million chocolate bars a year...

    30. You mean three zero?

    Ok

    And it goes up by a third, how many chocolate bars would it make?

    -No- 40 million. -No, nine...- It's 40 million! The professor is here to stay!

    Ah, I thought you multiplicated by three...

    I mean we need to understand the questions or we can't play!

    If Switzerland makes 30 million chocolate bars a year

    and it goes up by a third, how many chocolate bars would it make?

    40 million

    (laughing)

    This guy is a smart professional...aye? Uh huh, a professional!

    If there are four people in my family and three-quarters of them support Arsenal, how many people in my family are Arsenal fans?

    Just you, One

    What?

    So we’ve done, uh, three less two, because it was, uh, three quarters, but – you understand three at the beginning?

    Yeah, yeah like me

    If there are four people in my family and three-quarters of them support Arsenal, how many people in my family are Arsenal fans?

    Thanks for helping me with my homework

    You’re welcome, my friend, No worries

    Great pleasure (laughs)

    I think Alex helped me the best, so you get this

    -No- Woah! -No!- Leave my trophy alone! -Why??!-

    Wow, I’m going to treasure this

    (whistling)

    And this bag of sweets that my mum put in my lunchbox - oh wow

    My mum lets me play football after I’ve finished my homework. Fancy a kickabout?

    Yeah sure, Yes of Course

    Shh!

 

Gunners fan Joe needed some last-minute help with his homework, so we figured who better than his heroes to lend a hand?

 

Olivier Giroud, Alex Iwobi and Granit Xhaka


The talented trio of Olivier Giroud, Alex Iwobi and Granit Xhaka duly grabbed the gauntlet, donning ties and glasses in a bid to boost their brain power and really get into the spirit of heading back to school – even if they couldn’t all quite remember how to knot the ties.

The lads quickly got stuck in, but what started out as a bit of fun soon got serious as they grappled with geography, languages and maths questions.

Competing to see who would emerge as Joe’s true homework hero, things got more nerve-racking than a cup penalty shoot-out as the three Gunners went toe to toe.

They weren’t just playing for bragging rights in the dressing room either.  At the end, Joe presented the winner with a mini trophy and even gave them his bag of sweets!

So who would emerge triumphant by being most on the ball?

Would Olivier be able to translate his sharpshooting skills into a torrent of correct answers? Could Joe’s favourite Alex be as silky with his thinking as he is with his feet? Or would midfield maestro Granit be the one to take the spoils by mastering multiplication?

Check out the video to reveal all.
