Injured Brighton star streams EA FC 24 during Luton thrashing, fans all make the same joke

Injured Brighton star streams EA FC 24 during Luton thrashing, fans all make the same joke

You can guess the response from fans.

Injured Brighton star Julio Enciso is streaming EA FC 24 on his Twitch channel during his side's thrashing at Luton - and Seagulls fans are making the same joke.

The Paraguay international has missed the last five months of action after suffering a knee injury in August, and had to undergo a second procedure on the problem in December.

Luckily for the Seagulls, Enciso posted images last week which showed him back in individual training, and he is nearing a return to action ahead of a busy fixture schedule.

Away from football, the 20-year-old clearly enjoys playing video games, and streams EA FC via his own Twitch channel.

Prior to kick off in Brighton's away clash against Luton on Tuesday, Enciso posted a link to his Instagram story inviting fans to watch his stream of EA FC on Twitch.

Of course, the game isn't on TV in the UK, with TNT Sports showing Nottingham Forest vs Arsenal and Aston Villa vs Newcastle instead - meaning the winger had little else to do while the game was on.

ESPN reporter Roberto Rojas posted that, while his team-mates were in action at Kenilworth Road, Enciso's virtual stars were performing slightly better.

Roberto De Zerbi's side fell to a 3-0 deficit against Luton at half time, with the irony being that the team on Enciso's stream, which included icons such as Thierry Henry and Ronaldinho, won 5-2. Henry even did the griddy celebration.

As you can imagine, Brighton fans all made the same joke upon hearing of Enciso's exploits.

One wrote: "Thanks for the heads up, I may join him.

A second added: "Boss move by Enciso to distract us all from the game."

A third said: "I'd rather watch that."

And a fourth wrote: "This is too funny because what's he meant to do."

The real life game ended 4-0 to Luton, with striker Elijah Adebayo scoring a hat trick for Rob Edwards' side to lift them out of the relegation zone.

Brighton, meanwhile, had just two shots on target during what will be a night to forget for De Zerbi and his side.

As a result of the defeat, they drop below Newcastle in the table to eighth place on goal difference, with the Magpies beating Aston Villa 3-1 at Villa Park.
