Brett Goldstein, who won two Emmy Awards for his portrayal of AFC Richmond player Roy Kent, joked that this would be an opportunity to bring his character’s on-screen feud with Jamie Tartt into the virtual world.
“I’m looking forward to beating my nephew in a game with me as Roy Kent and Jamie Tartt. He’ll be furious,” said the actor.
FIFA game was launched in 1993 by EA Sports. Most real-world soccer teams are available to players.
