ePL Invitational: Raheem Sterling 5-4 Wilfried Zaha

Man City winger beats Crystal Palace star 5-4 to reach ePremier League Invitational quarter-finals

Raheem Sterling became the first player to qualify for the quarter-finals of the ePremier League Invitational with a thrilling EA SPORTS FIFA 20 victory over Wilfried Zaha.

Sterling won a nine-goal epic, with his Manchester City side beating Zaha's Crystal Palace 5-4 thanks to two goals from himself!

"This is completely different to what I'm used to; pride's on the line so there's a lot more at stake for me!" Sterling joked after the victory.

"It was all about winning. It's not about friendship today. That's the No 1 rule!"

Zaha also struck twice with his own player but was unable to book a quarter-final tie against Everton's Andre Gomes, who knocked out Chelsea's Reece James later in the day.

"I'm so frustrated," said Zaha.

"My defending in that game was so bad. But Raheem's a good player and the best man won today."
