England’s first eLions were confirmed on Thursday after a day of tense gaming to decide who will represent us at the first ever FIFA eNations Cup next month.
Eight of the country’s best gamers were involved competing on both the PS4 and Xbox One versions in a special studio in central London with fans able to watch all games live.
