Danish player Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg was recently filmed in a video having his knowledge about the NFL tested, although it did not go his way.
The midfielder is an integral part of the Tottenham Hotspur side and has been ever since he was signed by Spurs from Southampton.
As part of his duties for the club, he was challenged to take part in an NFL-based quiz where he teamed up with Sergio Reguilon and took on teammates Ben Davies and Lucas Moura.
In Tottenham’s video with Betway, the four players were shown competing in their teams across a total of three rounds:
- Round 1 featured a game of charades
- Round 2 was a round that looked to test the players’ knowledge regarding certain NFL jargon
- Round 3 was a geography-based game where they had to place the teams on a map
In the first round, Reguilon was left with the challenge of trying to provide Hojbjerg with actions that would allow him to guess the right teams that were being acted out.
The Spanish left-back certainly made things a little easier for the Denmark international, as he was pretty impressive with the actions that he was making. His Cowboys and Dolphins attempts were pretty impressive.
They actually took the lead in this round as he managed to guess more correctly than Davies did, although this was about as good as it got for the Scandanavian.
Round 2 saw the wheels come off for Hojbjerg and Reguilon, as their lack of knowledge regarding certain NFL terms certainly became evident.
The duo had to try and define phrases such as ‘Blitz‘, ‘Fumble’, ‘Sack’ and ‘Stiff Arm’ and failed to get the vast majority of them right. They did get ‘Fumble’ although it was perhaps a rather good educated guess on the Dane’s part.
As mentioned, the final round saw the pair required to try and accurately locate where each NFL team is based by using a blank map of the United States of America.
The duo did well, however their poor performance in regard to round two certainly cost them as they would end up the losers after being beaten 12-11.
Reguilon and Hojbjerg might want to brush up on their NFL knowledge as the season has ended, therefore, by the time the teams come to London and play at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, the duo might be in a better position to know a thing or two more.
