Footballs Staying Home Cup: Where can I watch today’s England Fifa 20 tournament?
Some of England’s leading players will go head-to-head from their living rooms over Easter as part of a new FIFA 20 tournament launched by the FA.
With real action suspended because of the coronavirus pandemic, players will find themselves in limbo over the holiday weekend — usually one of the most intense times of the season when leagues are nearing their climax.
The #Footballsstayinghome Cup kicks off on Friday, with the 16 players including Manchester United’s Marcus Rashford, Liverpool’s Trent Alexander Arnold and Olympique Lyonnais defender Lucy Bronze set to battle it out on the popular video game.
