E-sports athlete Ali Riza Aygün of PSV will be the first ever to play an e-international match against England.
The KNVB and the English Football Association have organized this first international match together. It has never happened before that two e-athletes played for their country and faced each other.
Aygün is selected for the Netherlands and will face the 18-year-old Shaun Springette.
The Netherlands is leading in the field of e-sports. Together with France they were the first to have an e-division.
This competition is the same as the Eredivisie, but the e-athletes play FIFA against each other to crown a champion. The 22-year-old e-sportsman already won several tournaments and was the winter champion of this season.
The match can be seen on Wednesday, March 21 at 8.30 pm on FOX Sports and the YouTube channel of OnsOranje..
