Trent Alexander-Arnold Was Fuming After Losing To Diogo Jota In FIFA Tournament Final
| Last updated
Trent Alexander-Arnold did not take well to losing to Diogo Jota on FIFA 20.
The Liverpool right-back got to the final of the ePremier League invitational, which has seen players from top-flights clubs compete on the virtual football game as their own teams whilst in isolation.
Alexander-Arnold knocked off Raheem Sterling in a cracking semi-final earlier in the day, coming back from 2-0 down and scoring a rebounded golden goal for the victory.
But he lost to Wolves' forward Jota via the same format in the final, having been 1-0 up in the first half. It took 67 minutes of the second game for the winning goal but it went to the Portuguese international - specifically his strike partner Raul Jimenez.
It meant Jota was crowned the Premier League's best FIFA player after the five-day tournament and you could see just how gutted Alexander-Arnold.
While there was no controllers thrown, he was absolutely fuming at the defeat and could only utter, "Yeah good game" when asked for some insight after the game.
It's a feeling only FIFA fanatics can relate to - that sheer dispair when you lose a game in cruel fashion.
However, the England international did then offer a few more words and said Jota was a worthy winner.
"I thought I done quite well to be fair, but he probably deserved to win that last game," Alexander-Arnold said on the stream.
"I'm happy to get to the final, but obviously not to win it.
"But he did well."
Jota's prize fund will go straight to the #PlayersTogether initiative that Premier League stars have joined forces for in aid of the brilliant NHS staff during the ongoing COVID-29 outbreak.
