Although footballers betting amongst each other in the popular football simulation game is not a new thing, but one needs to be especially careful when the two players involved belong to the rival clubs.
West Ham United star Michail Antonio challenged Tottenham Hotspur youngster Ryan Sessegnon to take him on in FIFA, in order to decide the result of the clash between the two sides in-game after Friday’s game was postponed amid the coronavirus outbreak.
Hence the rules were set: The loser will have to offer a full kit apology after the match.
Spurs ace Ryan Sessegnon decided to take on Antonio for the challenge and secured the victory for his side in the FIFA duel, winning 2-0 and seeing two penalties saved in a dominant victory.
Already put to the ground in FIFA, Antonio now had to face even more public embarrassment following his own bet as the Hammers forward posted a video on Twitter wearing the Spurs home kit.
Although he did try to save his blushes, scraping off the Tottenham jersey to unveil a West Ham kit, stating that wouldn’t let the rival kit touch his skin.
Nonetheless, it was all a light-hearted affair between the two which lead to a £1,000 donation to a mental health charity.
