Fifa 20 Gameplay Trailer

The world’s 32 best Fifa players have gathered in London to play for the chance to be crowned world champion at the 2019 Fifa eWorld Cup.

Alongside the trophy and bragging rights, the winner will also take home a $250,000 (£210,000) grand prize.

The tournament takes place over three days at the O2 in London, from 2-4 August, with 16 of the players on Playstation and 16 on Xbox. The best of each stream will meet in the final, for a two-legged match to decide the world champion.

Those taking part are the best of the best when it comes to Fifa, meaning any of the players has a legitimate chance of taking home the winner’s trophy.

We are off. The first semi final, the Xbox match between Rafsou and Msdossary, is all go.

Msdossary is of course the favourite going into this weekend, as trying to make history by becoming the first ever player to win back-to-back world championships. But French Rafsou is not making it easy.

Goal! Rafsou scores. He's making it very difficult indeed for Msdossary. France's finest Fifa player uses France's finest football player Mbappé to score a lovely goal.

Rafsou is looking very dangerous here. Had a couple more chances since that goal, and Msdossary is looking jittery.

Half time. It's 1-0 Rafsou as the two players chat to their coaches.

Msdosssary comes into the second half looking a little more energetic and active. But he still looks very much behind.

Rafsou is simply not letting Msdossary touch the ball.

A pause here, with a couple of substitutions.

Msdossary gets another goal to bring it equal.

And now it's 2-1 to Rafsou!

Immediately  Rafsou comes back! He scores straight away.
