Salford City defender Ibou Touray was the hero as the Ammies won the Leasing.com Trophy Virtual Final on Sunday afternoon.
Touray 'took charge' of Salford in a 1v1 game of EA Sports FIFA 20 against Portsmouth's Steve Seddon, hosted by Sky Sports presenter David Prutton, and secured a 3-1 victory.
From their safety of their own homes, the first-team stars battled it out to bring a new experience to fans up and down the country, in a game shared across social media by the EFL, Sky Sports, both Clubs and Leasing.com.
Dave Timmis, MD of Leasing.com, had earlier said: “As the car leasing experts, we always try to stay at the forefront of technology and find new ways to engage. In this modern age, people can do virtually anything from home, they can even order a brand-new car from their sofa. That’s why we’re naturally very excited to be involved in a virtual matchday that allows fans to support their teams in the safety of their own homes.”
You can watch extended highlights of the game via the EFL's official YouTube channel, here.
As a result of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the Leasing.com Trophy Final is currently postponed alongside all EFL matches. The situation is being kept under constant review with matches only returning when it is safe to do so.
