Todd Cantwell has been eliminated from the Fifa Ultimate QuaranTeam competition after being beaten 3-1 by Standard Liege.

The Belgian outfit were represented by a professional E-Sports gamer and proved to possess too much quality for Cantwell to contend with.

They took the lead early on after a nice piece of combination play on the edge of the area which led to Alexsander Bolijevic netting from close range.

Cantwell’s virtual side equalised soon after, when a defensive error led to Emi Buendia striking from inside the area.

In the end, Liege’s player possessed too much quality, with Bolijevic scoring again and Obbi Oulare added a third late on.
