Watch Daniel Sturridge, James Milner and Joe Allen forced to 007 their way out of locked room

They're no Daniel Craigs but Daniel Sturridge, James Milner and Joe Allen aren't actually the worst detectives in the world.

The Liverpool trio were tasked with figuring out a series of codes to break out of a locked room and, after a little bit of struggling, they did themselves proud and disproved the theory that footballers are stupid.

Sturridge, Allen and Milner needed the full hour to get to the finish line and the challenge ended up being an awful lot more difficult than expected.

We do feel a little cheated that it took place this season, rather than last, because the prospect of seeing Mario Balotelli's patience being tested by such an involved task is something that we'd have paid good money to watch.
