From the pitch to the television screen. From reality to fiction. A couple days ago, Cesc, Piqué, Alexis, Adriano, Bartra, Neymar Jr, Tello and Montoya tried out EA SPORTS FIFA 14 on the new gaming console Xbox One. The players, who organised themselves into teams of two, played against each other in a tournament. The tournament was won when Tello and Montoya defeated Piqué and Cesc in the final.

“It was a very competitive final. We were almost there,” said Cesc after the final game. “Tello and Montoya were very lucky. They created two chances and they scored two goals,” said Marc Bartra, who was eliminated by the champions in the first round of the competition.

Game improvements

The newest version of the game, FIFA 14, offers up enhanced realism through dynamic stadiums and footballer who seem more real than ever – they play, behave, think and move like real players. It’s as you’re really playing with Neymar Jr, Alexis or Montoya.

The professional instinct of the players, more precise movements, new technical abilities, and smarter AI team-mates are just some of the improvements to the game developed by EA SPORTS IGNITE.

Avid gamers

Neymar Jr admitted that “I play at home with my friends,” as does Cristian Tello. Gerard Piqué noted that he used to play quite a bit but he spends less time on the console now that he’s a father. Adriano, however, said “I have a child and we play together.”
