A host of England’s best young ballers will battle it out in a new FIFA 20 tournament from the comfort of their own homes.
As part of the #FootballsStayingHome initiative, 16 internationals from the men’s, women’s and MU21 squads will put their skills to the test on a virtual pitch, to help raise awareness for the National Emergencies Trust and their efforts to help those most affected by the Coronavirus outbreak.
It's time to find out @England's best FIFA player! 🎮
