Mousset brace helps Egan past Ireland team-mate Connolly

8 May 2020
ePL Invitational: John Egan 4-2 Aaron Connolly

Sheffield United centre-back scores two late goals on FIFA 20 to reach semi-finals of ePL Invitational with 4-2 win over Brighton

Sheffield United's John Egan triumphed 4-2 over Brighton & Hove Albion striker Aaron Connolly to reach the semi-finals of the ePremier League Invitational.

Connolly had a great chance to go ahead against his Republic of Ireland international team-mate but fired a penalty over the crossbar with his own in-game character.

Egan made it 1-0 to Sheffield United with a low strike from Oliver Norwood but Connolly turned it around as he equalised with Aaron Mooy and then netted with himself.

But 2019/20 Fantasy Premier League favourite John Lundstram levelled and, with the match heading for golden goal, Egan struck twice with Lys Mousset to secure victory.

Egan will on Saturday face Norwich City's Max Aarons, who beat Chelsea's Emerson in the day's final quarter-final, and Connolly hopes his victor can go on to win the tournament.

“He’s a good player," he said. "I want him to go and win it.”
