Dortmund star Raphael Guerreiro takes on cannon volley challenge

Borussia Dortmund star Raphael Guerreiro joined the Freekickerz to take on their Volley Cannon Challenge, aptly named as it basically entails scoring a volley with a football fired across the 18-yard box by a slingshot.

After warming up with a few vanilla volleys (executed with varying degrees of success) the Freekickerz decide to up the ante by challenging Guerreiro to pull off "the impossible" -- a bicycle kick.

It was at that point that the Portuguese left-back showed just why he's able to make a living as a professional footballer.

Oh yes, nicely done sir.

Indeed, Guerreiro isn't the first pro to have his fundamentals tested at his sponsor's behest, with Luis Suarez and Lionel Messi previously made to control footballs dropped from a crane in pursuit of a Guinness World Record.

Chris covers the funny side of the game for ESPN FC in the Toe Poke blog.
