Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain played FIFA 14 against Gooner and Youtube star KSI at the BT Sport Studios ahead of the featured head-to-head battle that will be aired prior to Arsenal’s Saturday fixture against Crystal Palace.
The England international was feeling confident ahead of the tie, with a bit of banter involving passionate FIFA player Emmanuel Frimpong.
A confident Olxade-Chamberlain said:
He [KSI] lost 6-1 to Emmanuel Frimpong the other day and Frimpong has never beaten me; so just putting it out there!
KSI was looking forward to the tie that will be seen by millions of his subscribers to his YouTube channel, and couldn’t help but have a little jib at footballers playing ‘his’ game:
I am used to playing people from all over the world but it’s been great to play with a professional footballer such as the Ox. I hear that a lot of the footy lads have banter about Fifa skills.
Apparently they play it a lot in down time and on tours, so I was keen to see what Alex had in his locker. Personally I think he should stick to the real game and leave Fifa to me!
COMMON THE OX!
