Michail Antonio has put himself up for another FIFA 20 challenge – this time to help encourage West Ham supporting youngsters while they are cooped up at home.

Hammers star Antonio was this week forced to wear a Tottenham shirt after losing a match on the popular computer game to Spurs’s Ryan Sessegnon, when the two players simulated the match that was due to take place between the clubs last Friday.

Undeterred, Antonio is now primed to face one of the club’s young fans as a game against the winger is the prize in their newly-launched Young Hammers at Home initiative which follows the unveiling of their Hammers At Home campaign this week.
