Meet The 14-Year-Old FIFA Whizkid Vying To Become World Champion

Anders Vejrgang isn't even old enough to be a professional FIFA player and yet he's taking the e-sports world by storm.

The 14-year-old, who cannot yet compete officially until he turns 16, has become a viral phenomenon in recent weeks after going 210-0 on FUT Champions on FIFA 21.

48,000 people have been watching the youngest do his thing with a controller in his palms and he's scored more than 200 goals in 30 matches.

He won one of his games on penalties but other than that, he's been destroying players left, right and centre with an entertaining style of play.

"To be honest, even though it is 'just' Weekend-League, I still wanted to reach the 210-0 and put pressure on myself," Anders told SPORTbible.

"I'm very ambitious and as long as I'm not allowed to compete in international tournaments, the weekend-league is my competition to shine in.

"I want to score goals. I defend on a very high line, pressure my opponent as much as possible and try to use my skill-set in the offence."

Anders, whose first experience playing the popular EA Sports football game was FIFA 13 on the PlayStation 3, represents German side RB Leipzig.

He's almost too good for opponents that you wonder how there's not been mass rage-quitting. However, Anders remains level-headed and professional as he looks to continue his incredible unbeaten run.

"People are hardly quitting matches at the moment against me," he revealed.

"Sometimes I'm leading 15-0 and they do not quit. I respect every opponent and just want to win. I take it game by game and hope to stay unbeaten for as long as possible."

His ultimate goal is to be FIFA world champion and who are we to bet against him given how ridiculously talented he is at such a young age?

Being in this position at 14 hasn't been easy, though. He's had to deal with pressure and some negativity but fortunately Anders has people around to help him look past some of the nasty comments that have come his way.

"It's been challenging at times. I simply enjoy playing FIFA, I know that 98 per cent of the feedback is positive, but some of the comments are just insults. I'm happy to have my family, my club and my management - they support me and help to get through that.

"My parents are very supportive. My mother drove me to all the national tournaments, she helps me out with travelling a lot and she totally understands the opportunity that FIFA offers to me."

Remember the name.
