Jayden "NFG Jayden" Groden (EVE)

The 16-year-old Glaswegian is enjoying his first year competing in the FIFA esports scene, and has signed a pre-contract agreement with Leicester City player Christian Fuchs' management company.

Jayden has shown off his ball skills on the pitch, winning a bronze medal with Scotland in a European futsal tournament, and he is now aiming for success in ePremier League.

Get to know Jayden

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

I would love to meet Dominic Calvert-Lewin. He’s an amazing player and the way he came through the Academy and worked with Duncan Ferguson is what to me football is all about.

Have you done anything to enhance your game this season?

I have been practising a lot and playing a lot of friendlies with other pros to try to improve my game. I also watched back old games to see what I did right and wrong, to improve.

Who are your favourite players in FIFA 21?

My favourites this year are R9 Ronaldo and Kyle Walker. R9 up top will always be the best striker on every FIFA as he seems to score goals that no other player can. For Walker, I purchased his Inform card the day he came out and he’s been a saviour at the back.

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

Definitely making a live event. My aim was to make the finals and I have achieved that.

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

It would be a crazy journey for my first year of competing. I have my hopes high in going far if I can play my best stuff, and it would mean everything to me to win.
