Chris Smalling Battles Micah Richards On Pro Evolution Soccer: Video

But they did it in a unique manner by letting the two England under-21 internationals play each other in the video game Pro Evolution Soccer.

Not surprisingly, Richards picked Manchester City while Smalling picked Manchester United. Watch the video to see who won the game.

    Playing FIFA or PES I’ve always wondered what the actual players think of the game. Would you feel slighted to be ranked mid-70′s, for example, if you thought/knew you were better?
    Even as a fan I often find myself second-guessing the ratings given — “Bale is obviously faster than that…”
    Did you notice Richards when “he” made a nice run?

    I could see myself wasting a bit of time watching select matchups of players in a PES showdown.

    this video shows why FIFA is a much better game than PES
