Earlier this month, he revealed a team of FIFA 17 wonderkids of yesteryear were unstoppable – but would the current crop of youngsters have the same success?

You’d think so. After all, they’ve got the likes of Kasper Dolberg on the BENCH!

To find out, he plonked them all in a Newcastle side, then simmed two seasons – tracking their progress as they went along.

So, how did they do?

Not great.

It’s not the best start from the youngsters as they struggle to adapt to the pace of the Premier League

At the end of the first season, the Magpies finish 14th – just a few places up from the relegation zone.

Surely some of the youngsters performed, though, right?

Nope.

Not one of them featured in the top 25 scorers in the league.

They fared slightly better when it came to assists, with Nadiem Amiri and Mikel Oyarzabal getting seven apiece.

Gianluigi Donnarumma made it on to the clean sheet list – with three – putting him in 24th place.

Maybe the youngsters just needed to get used to the league? Could they do better in their second season?

Well, they definitely stepped it up a gear.

Newcastle finish fifth – nine points behind fourth place Manchester City.

It’s a much more successful second season for the youngsters, who take Newcastle to fifth place
