Last year, YouTuber KSI sat down with six Chelsea FC players from the first-team squad for a friendly game of EA Sports FIFA. Before the game got underway, the famed gamer went ballistic upon spotting “a real-life hazard” at the far end of the couch, and felt compelled to call up his mother to share the news.
A team comprised of Eden Hazard, Thibaut Courtois, Michy Batshuayi (on loan to Borussia Dortmund), and KSI’s friend, competed against the famed gamer himself allied with Nathaniel Chalobah (now with Watford), Kurt Zouma (on load to Stoke City) and N’Golo Kante. Zouma scored the lone goal to give KSI’s foursome the 1-0 victory.
FIFA 17 SKILLS CHALLENGE
The same two teams (minus KSI and his friend) faced off in a real-life FIFA 17 Skill Games.
Whether or not playing FIFA 17 leads to success on the pitch is open to debate, but last season Hazard and Zouma did lead Chelsea to the top of the Premiere League table.
