Watch the Spurs stars attempt to build gingerbread houses in the Tottenham Hotspur Festive Challenge.

Splitting into three teams, the players rush to complete a well-constructed, sweet-based, Christmas-orientated abode.

As it becomes clear that Team One’s gingerbread house building isn’t going to plan, see Emmanuel Adebayor steal the house they were supposed to be copying and try to pass it off as his team’s own attempt… and other capers.

Adebayor’s unsporting behaviour is eventually revealed to have been in vain and the Spurs catering staff choose the gingerbread house built by Team Two, featuring Michael Dawson, Brad Friedel and Carlo Cudicini, as the winner.

The newly-crowned creation is then taken to a hospital in Harlow by the victorious team and eaten by young patients.

Although defender Dawson was apparently:

Not too sure if it’s edible.

Plus, listen to Clint Dempsey try to disguise Team Three’s disappointing creation with a trundling excuse:

I think it’s an abstract interpretation of our art y’know.

It’s very abstract, I think we take it to the next level y’know.

Anybody can just follow directions but you’ve got to think outside the box.
