We all did it when we were younger, kicking the ball around the kitchen against our mum’s wishes and even open a few cupboards or appliances to test our shooting accuracy. Well, electronics company Beko challenged legendary FC Barcelona defender Éric Abidal to take a shot into one of their new washing machines.

The challenge was put forward following the Beko’s partnership with the Spanish giants and the launch of their new FC Barcelona-branded product range at IFA 2016. One of Barca’s modern greats Éric Abidal was challenged by Beko to take a shot into the new Beko Washing Machine.

Beko are the first Turkish white good brand to take their products overseas, and today a Beko branded product is sold every two seconds somewhere in the world. Beko is all about addressing the needs of the new smart generation by offering what they’re calling ‘Smart Solutions’. Think smart technologies with stylish functional designs that both save the world and save at home.

While he’s not in the video, Barcelona’s star striker Luis Suárez was allegedly the first player to take on the Beko challenge, and scored a goal into the washing machine on his first try. It’s not too much of a stretch to believe the story in fairness!
