Anthony “GuigseyBACK” McGuigan (AVL)

Anthony, 23, hails from East Kilbride, Glasgow in Scotland and will be competing in ePL for the first time.

After taking a two-year break from playing FIFA, the Celtic fan has returned representing Aston Villa, who he has been following closely ever since they signed John McGinn.

He has entered several midweek cups and has been going to bed early in the hope it will pay off in his quest to be the champion.

Get to know Anthony

How long have you been playing FIFA?

I got into competitive gaming back in FIFA 14 when I saw Gfinity tournaments online. I competed up until FIFA 18, then I took a couple years' break and have only started back competitively a couple of months ago.

If you could meet one current Villa player, who would it be?

It would be John McGinn definitely. I think he’s a fantastic player and as a fellow Scot I would be honoured to meet him.

Who's your favourite player, both in the game and in real life?

I like Cristiano Ronaldo but my favourite at the moment has to be Pele after his performance during the playoffs. He scored vital goals in the club final to enable me to play in the live finals.

What's been the most exciting part of being part of the ePL?

Definitely the final in the playoffs. I’ve not felt emotions like that for a long time.
