Norwich City’s Todd Cantwell will host Belgian outfit Standard Liege in the third round of the Fifa Ultimate QuaranTeam competition.

The 22-year-old is the Canaries representative for the tournament devised by League Two side Leyton Orient as they seek to raise funds for three charitable causes.

Cantwell has beaten Fleetwood Town and Stevenage in the opening two rounds, but the draw pits him against a professional Fifa player.

Teemu Pukki’s dramatic last gasp winner ensured Cantwell’s men progressed to the last 32 of the 128-team competition, as City beat Stevenage in dramatic fashion after a second round replay.

Liege beat League One side Bolton Wanderers 4-1 in the opening round before completing a hard-fought 1-0 victory over Italian side Fiorentina.
