bit of a stretch!

Could Manuel Neuer single-handedly win the league with a 1-rated team on FIFA?

Just how good is the world's best goalkeeper?

Manuel Neuer may be one of the greatest keepers who has ever lived, but this could be a stretch too far.

YouTuber Rich Leigh tasked the 31-year-old to try and win the league with a Bayern Munich team made up solely of 1-rated players on FIFA 17.

It’s not the first time Leigh has conducted a FIFA experiment.

Earlier in the year, he investigated what would happen if Cristiano Ronaldo returned to Sporting Lisbon.

To give the shot-stopper a fighting chance, he boosted his ratings to 99. After all, he is pretty unstoppable in real life.

So, how did he get on?

Well, against all odds Bayern win their first game – beating Bremen 1-0.

It’s a dream start for Neuer as he keeps a clean sheet against Bremen

Not only that, but the manager gets awarded the manager of the month award.

It’s a dream start – but can Neuer keep it up?

Sadly, the losses start coming in – including a 1-0 defeat to PSV.

The losses soon start to pile up – not even Neuer can save the club now

They do manage to pick up a draw against Atletico Madrid, though.

Oh, and the manager gets offered the England job.

With a team full of the 1-rated players, they’ve won just 3 games from 63 and lost 59.

Neuer conceded an enormous 168 goals and their manager is given the boot.
