The Gamers Without Borders FIFA 20 International Elite tournament took place this weekend as eight of the very best esports professionals battled for supremacy in the name of charity.
The three-day tournament was also peppered with appearances from VIP guests, as the likes of Tottenham's Dele Alli, Juventus' Paulo Dybala and Liverpool's Trent Alexander-Arnold all took part in a series of all-star clashes.
Friday night saw the first celebrity matchup take place at Alexander-Arnold (playing as Liverpool, naturally) came face to face with One Direction star Liam Payne (Chelsea).
Perhaps unsurprisingly, the Liverpool full-back emerged victorious, winning both games in fairly convincing fashion to claim the spoils.
Saturday's action was capped by a celebrity duel between Dele Alli and Paolo Dybala, who chose to compete as PSG and Liverpool, respectively.
The chat began in fairly mundane fashion but things began to pick up as the goals flew in.
Indeed, it wasn't long before Dybala was in his stride, entertaining the crowd with a rousing rendition of "You'll Never Walk Alone."
Dybala had the upper hand throughout, winning 2-0 in a best-of-three contest despite a few technical hiccups.
However, the Argentinian ultimately proved to be a gracious winner, even offering Alli a consolatory "COYS" at one point much to his opponent's amusement.

The International Elite tournament was brought to a close on Sunday with a double helping of celebrity games. First, Joao Felix of Atletico Madrid went up against Eintracht Frankfurt striker Andre Silva, with the latter making light work of his young compatriot.
With thousands of dollars already raised, the entire International Elite weekend was wrapped up by a fourth and final celebrity game. What better way to bring the world's biggest FIFA 20 tournament to a close than with a cameo from a true heavyweight: rapper Snoop Dogg.
