The coronavirus or COVID-19 pandemic has led to a complete lockdown in the world of football with all the major leagues in the world currently suspended, with clubs asking their players to self-isolate and follow individual training regimes at home.
Footballers have come up with various ways to remain entertained during this period of self-isolation on social media and now Juventus superstar, Paulo Dybala and Wales and Real Madrid star, Gareth Bale faced off FIFA 20 as part of the Combat Corona fundraiser for Unicef.
It was the Argentinian who came out on top as he beat Bale 3-1, with Dybala opting to play as Real Madrid on the night while the Welshman played as Manchester City and even took the lead courtesy of a Sergio Aguero goal.
“It’s the least we can do to raise money for Unicef and the battle against this virus. Obviously everyone is stuck at home and trying to stay safe so let’s try and raise as much money as we can,” Bale said.
The duo were not the only footballers to take part in the charity event, with the likes of Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Jordan Pickford, Luke Shaw, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Daniel James, Billy Gilmour, Kieran Tierney and Mason Mount all getting involved, with the event raising £17,000.
