David Raya back in FIFA action this evening

Bees stopper takes on Lincoln City in Stay INtertoto Cup

15 April 2020

After last night's aborted attempt due to an EA Sports server outage, David Raya will finally face Lincoln City's Tom Pett this evening in his second STAY INtertoto Cup group game.

Kick-off is at 6pm and the game will be streamed live via our twitch channel.

Tonight's encounter is must-not-lose for both players after opening day defeats. A late goal saw David suffer a 3-2 reverse on Sunday night at the hands of Southampton's Che Adams while midfielder Pett lost by the same scoreline to Crawley Town's Ricardo De-Niro German 24 hours later. 

David's opening match against The Saints was a see-saw affair with four quickfire goals late in the first-half sending the two teams in level; Josh Dasilva and Ollie Watkins on target for The Bees. After the break both sides had chances but the game was settled inside the final 15 minutes as Nathan Redmond converted from close range.

With only the top two going through there's not much room for error left for either player. 

The STAY INtertoto Cup is open only to professional footballers, each representing their own Club in the 64 team tournament. 

As well as filling the football void, the tournament is also raising money for the NHS Charities Together which is supporting staff and volunteers caring for COVID-19 patients.
