Gamescom 2015: Carra And Nev’s FIFA 16 FUT Draft Is Genuinely Funny
It’s not often I’d put the words “FIFA” and “funny” in the same sentence, unless someone is telling me a joke about corruption in football’s governing body and my response is “that FIFA joke is funny”.
However, today at the EA Gamescom press briefing, EA Sports they showed off a clip of Jamie Carragher and Gary Neville playing FIFA 16‘s “FUT Draft 16” (FIFA Ultimate Team Draft 16) mode and the banter between the two, although probably very scripted, is actually genuinely funny.
It’s especially funny if you are a fan of English Premiership football and know that they played for bitter rivals Liverpool (my team!) and Man Utd, respectively, a few years back. They are now two of the main football pundits for Sky Sports.
Ah, the “bants”… The Carra and Nev clip can be seen at the start of the Gamescom video below and lasts about 3 minutes.
FIFA 16 releases on September 24th in Europe.
