Manchester City star Raheem Sterling has warned Liverpool favourite Trent Alexander-Arnold that he will not beat him when the two players lock horns in the last four of a FIFA 20 competition on Saturday afternoon.
Their meeting will be the first of two semi-finals in the tournament on Saturday with the top two teams in the Premier League meeting virtually.
While the two players may be rivals in club football, they are England teammates as well as friends off the pitch and have played each other a number of times on FIFA 20 while away on international duty.
And despite Alexander-Arnold often coming out on top, Sterling believes there is not chance that the 21-year-old will win this time.
“I kind of know how Trent plays so I’m looking forward to it,” Sterling said, after beating Everton star Andre Gomes in the quarter-final.
“We’ve played before with the national team during camps in his room.
“I can’t play FIFA on the TV so he wins every time! But when I’ve got this little set-up here, he’s not beating me.”
