FIFA 20 Player Features On Billboard In Ultimate Forfeit After Losing
A FIFA player in Portugal has had to star on a billboard admitting his friend is better than him.
Frederico Pombares is featured front and center in the billboard with a message surrounding his forlorn figure.
The message reads:
"I, Frederico Pombares, assume that I'm a worse FIFA player than Cesar Mourao."
The Portuguese comedian lost a bet with another celebrity in the area and the forfeit was starring on the humiliating billboard in the middle of Lisbon.

We've all had to give out a FIFA apology at some point in our careers.
Whether it's just a bad day at the office or excuses such as a dodgy controller, nobody is perfect and we all take a big defeat at some point.
It's certainly one of the more drastic and unique forfeits to hit one of your friends with.
FIFA 20 has been in the news recently for more negative reasons.
Fans took a stand at the EA headquarters in Bucharest last week voicing their issues about the quality of the game.
A Reddit user shared the story online as a small number of players took issue with pack luck in the popular Ultimate Team mode, button delay and scripting.
And fans are furious with how the odds are balanced in packs, effectively making it more difficult for players to receive rare Ultimate Team cards.
The Reddit post has amassed over 3,700 upvotes at the time of writing, but the protest in Romania has been met with a mixed reception from fans.

User RPRHUNT supported the cause and wrote: "I wish I could join them, its [sic] so frustrating having no one to complain to besides the community."
While alexharvey04 argued: "Realistically tho all that's gonna happen is [they're] gonna have a nice laugh upstairs while calculating how much money there gonna make tomorrow."
