Watch: Man United Stars Go Berserk During Intense FIFA Showdown

Watch: Man United Stars Go Berserk During Intense FIFA Showdown

There's something mildly relieving about professional footballers taking FIFA as seriously as the average punter - particularly when they're controlling themselves.

Manchester United recently set up cameras around their own squad's four-on-four FIFA showdown, with Paul Pogba, Timothy Fosu-Mensah, David De Gea and Ashley Young facing off against Wayne Rooney, Anthony Martial, Jesse Lingard and Daley Blind.

The results were absolutely spectacular.

Paul Pogba is indeed as loud as you might imagine, and seems to love a crunching challenge in FIFA at least. He even appeared to take credit for his side's winning goal, as Ashley Young led his opposition on a merry dance before cannoning the ball past David De Gea with FIFA's version of Pogba. The real Pogba celebrated wildly, apparently amazed by his own ability.

Other highlights include Daley Blind snapping at Wayne Rooney for spurning a golden opportunity for a late equaliser, and Rooney fronting up to the cameras post-game in a vague attempt to explain his side's defeat during a hugely tense encounter. It's a fantastic video, particularly if you're a United fan, and you can watch it in full below:
