West Ham Gaming vs Lyon

Watch Again: West Ham Gaming face Lyon Esports!

One of the biggest weeks in Claret & Blue continental history is in full swing – and West Ham Gaming played their part with a showpiece friendly on Wednesday against Olympique Lyonnais’ Esports club ‘LDLC OL’ - winning 3-2 over two legs!

West Ham’s professional FIFA player Alfie ‘AC RedLac’ Calder took on Abdelhamid ‘Mence’ Fares – Lyon’s representative – in a two-legged friendly match on EA SPORTS FIFA 22.

In hopefully a case of life imitating art, the two players drew 1-1 in the first leg, before RedLac and West Ham won the second 2-1!

The non-competitive game mirrored the two sides’ UEFA Europa League quarter-final, with the Hammers hoping to overcome Lyon’s real-life players on Thursday evening in the second leg in France after a 1-1 draw at London Stadium last week.

French-born FIFA player Mence has represented Lyon’s LDLC OL since October 2020 (the FIFA 21 season), after previous spells with Epsilon Esports and IFY Esports!
