Being a footballer is difficult, but training sessions like this one from England’s under-21 goalkeeper training suggest it has its perks.

Young stoppers Freddy Woodman (Aberdeen), Angus Gunn (Norwich City) and Dean Henderson (Shrewsbury Town) prepared for their upcoming fixtures against Romania and Ukraine with a variety of games which were both captivating and hugely competitive.

It’s not a bad way to earn a crust, is it?

When you’re a goalkeeper you can pass that off as work can’t you? Wouldn’t go down so well in your office though…

An extended video of a few other games was uploaded to FATV’s YouTube account, showing a game of volleyball using the feet only, as well as some competitive goal-work, too.

It’s a tough job, but somebody’s got to do it.
