Get to know Diogo

Are you a Chelsea fan, and how does it feel to be playing in the ePL finals for them? 

It's great to be representing Chelsea, especially when my boss is Cesar Azpilicueta, who is the club captain. He is also the current first-team player I would most like to meet.

Who is your favourite player in FIFA 21? 

Yashin, the best goalkeeper on the game.

Which team would you most like to beat in the final? Which FIFA player is your biggest rival? 

Spurs and their ePL finalist, ELVNS Stokes.

What has been the most exciting thing about competing in ePL and the most memorable match so far? 

I like the fact that it's a domestic competition, which means that most of your friends are playing in it. My best match has got to be the semi-final of the playoffs when I won 12-2. 

What would it mean for you to win the ePL title? 

Winning a first trophy would always be the most special one.
