As far as (e)sporting rivalries go, professional FIFA player Rannerz and David Meyler is up there with the best.

Meyler has already beaten the 58th ranked FIFA player in the world and ahead of Ireland's match with Northern Ireland on Thursday evening we managed to grab the pair and rekindle their rivalry with Meyler playing as Ireland and Roma's Rannerz taking the reigns at Northern Ireland.



The match got off to a flyer with Rannerz opening the scoring on 10 minutes, Niall McGinn crossing to Jordan Jones to power home a header, though Meyler was unhappy with the sweaty nature of the Roma man's opener.

Meyler managed to work his way back into the game on 38 minutes, pouncing on a poor clearance from the Northern Ireland goalkeeper before finishing high into the roof of the net.

But it would not be level for long, with Stuart Dallas poking home from a cross in additional time to give Rannerz the lead at the break.

It would get worse for Meyler in the second half, when his namesake gave away the ball in the box, letting Jordan Jones in to give Rannerz a two goal lead.


Seani Maguire would bring the score back to 3-2 on 86 minutes, but it wasn't enough as Rannerz held on for the win. So the pair are now 1-1 overall and if Thursday's match will be as exciting as this one was (it won't be), we're in for a treat.
