An Aldo shuffle from Torres, a set of blind-folded penalty takers and LFC TV's Matt Critchley assuming a place between the sticks - these were just a few of the curious sights on show at an event held at Melwood recently.
The club channel's presenter was happy to swap his interview mic for a pair of goalkeeping gloves as he joined four members of the Liverpool squad in an exercise held to promote 'Seeing is Believing'.
The project is the Bank's global initiative to tackle avoidable (preventable or treatable) blindness. It's a little known fact that there are 45 million people who are blind worldwide, yet 80% of this blindness is avoidable - for example blindness caused by a disease that could be prevented with medicine or a condition that could be cured with surgery.
As 90% of blindness occurs in the developing world this is a key issue for the Bank where much of its business is based. Seeing is Believing raises money to help develop eye care services for people living in the countries where they work.
The initiative began in 2003 and since then it has raised more than $25 million for eye-care and helped restore sight to over 2.5 million people. The project's latest commitment aims to generate $20 million for eye care for 20 million people in some of the poorest cities in the world.
The Bank has matched every dollar raised by the project since its inception and they were keen to get some of the club's stars on board to help raise awareness of the main issues.
It resulted in a scenario that saw each player confidently complete the challenge of 10 keepy-ups before having three attempts to repeat the trick - blind-folded!
Needless to say, no-one found it easy, with Nando, Jamie Carragher and Danny Wilson notching up just eight in total, while Dani Pacheco could only manage five.
Carragher told Liverpoolfc.tv: "There are blind people out there who have to use the ball with a bell in it and you can see from what happened when we were blindfolded how much skill is involved."
If the keepy-up test wasn't enough proof of the challenges facing blind footballers, then the next step certainly was, as the quartet took on Critchley in a head-to-head battle from the spot.
"First of all, they each took a penalty like a normally sighted person would," said Critchley, taking up the story.
"It was a bit embarrassing when Fernando did an Aldo shuffle on me. I dived out of the way and he just clipped it down the middle with this huge grin on his face!
"After that they each took five penalties blind-folded using a ball with a bell in it, so as to gain an appreciation of what it would be like to play football blind.
"That was a different story, although they all did okay to be fair - but I also want to get on record that I did save a few of them!"
The sight of one of the world's best strikers following up a composed, cheeky finish with a wayward shot that hit a cameraman stood six yards from the goal was further evidence of the difficulties involved.
Torres said: "I have seen some games with blind people in the past. The level of difficulty is so high.
"Unless you try it you can't really understand how hard it is. It's amazing what they (Seeing is Believing) are doing for people.
"I actually had a neighbour in Spain who is blind. He is a good friend of mine and it is great that projects like this are helping people like him."
Filming professional footballers trying to come to terms with a ball after being denied their sight was the perfect way to illustrate just what Seeing is Believing is trying to achieve and left Liverpool FC Sponsorship Manager (Standard Chartered Bank), Marc Davies delighted with the outcome of the day.
"We are very pleased with the footage gained during the session with LFC players," said Davies.
"The session was used to highlight key facts around avoidable blindness in developing countries, as part of the Bank's wider Seeing is Believing (SiB) programme."
Standard Chartered are using our next home matches against Blackburn Rovers and Chelsea to raise awareness of World Sight Day which took place on October 14th.
