ePremier League: Ndidi Suffers Embarrassing 8-2 Loss To Jota

ePremier League: Ndidi Suffers Embarrassing 8-2  Loss To Jota

In a bid to keep fans entertained this period and support medical personnel, the Premier League created an online gaming competition among its players.

The competition named “ePremier league” involves a selected player from each of the 20 premier league clubs drawn against each other to play the game of FIFA.

Each player represents his club with the prize fund donated to the #PlayersTogether initiative, which will then be given to the National Health Service (NHS).

Super Eagles star, Wilfred Ndidi was Leicester representative, but the 23-year-old’s gaming skills are not as brilliant as his football skills.

The former Genk man was paired against Wolves’ Diogo Jota, and it was the Portuguese star who came out on top in emphatic fashion.

In a one-sided game, Jota put eight past Ndidi who could only manage two goals. The Portugal international played using his Wolves side and scored four goals himself.

Jota took the lead with a strike from Raul Jimenez, but Ndidi levelled scores immediately with a strike from his countryman, Kelechi Iheanacho.

However, it was all Jota from there as he scored five consecutive times including a hat-trick from him. Jamie Vardy scored Leicester’s second, but a strike from Leonardo Campana and Jota himself secured a comprehensive win for the Portuguese.

Speaking to the premier league after the win, Jota says he’s a better player than Ndidi, while the Nigerian believes the Wolves star could win the tournament.

Jota said: “I think probably I know of the game than him [Ndidi]. I’m an attacker so I’m always looking to score goals instead of defending. That’s my style of play.”

Ndidi said: “I think he can actually win the tournament. He’s really good. I’m not up to that standard yet, but at least I learned a few things. He’ll go far.”

Jota’s reward for beating Ndidi is a quarter-final clash against Sheffield’s Lys Mousset.

    I watched the game live on twitch, Ndidi was a total disaster he couldn’t even complete a decent pass. He displayed the typical less technical depth of Nigerian gamers and got weeped by an attacking jota who takes advantage of his poor ball distribution and loss of possession.

     
  • Playing FIFA is different to playing on the pitch though. Make them meet for field, lol.

    One na theory, the other na practical. Me? I would not even know how to load the game self, but give me ball shoot first. Hahahahaha

      BigD Nigeria players are almost not good when it comes to technical side of the game that has always been our biggest undoing. Watch Maupay and these white guys they all have something upstairs even Reece who lost 8 Zero self try but our Ndidi game was just too funny to watch. He remind me of those days we gather and play.

    I don’t know how Ndidi got to be the person to represent LCFC in the First place.Iheanacho would have done a whole lot better than that’ watched him play against a boastful reporter and trashed her 4-0 during his days at man-city, would have gotten a lot more better now.
    The winner of the e-premiere league got to be either sterling or this Jota guy i predict’
