The Philadelphia Union signed Jay Ajayi to be their 2020 representative in the ‘eMLS’ FIFA league that’s organized by Major League Soccer.
It was a publicity stunt more than anything, but a smart one, because the Union brand found its way to all sorts of global media outlets that shared the news of a pro football player and Super Bowl winner signing on to rep the local soccer team in a video game tournament.
Turns out, however, that Jay Train isn’t very good at FIFA. In Thursday’s inaugural league event at Union Transfer on Spring Garden Street, he finished dead last:
Update: Jay Ajayi finished 0-12 with a -61 goal differential.

Jay scored 11 goals and gave up 72. That’s a pretty rough start.
But listen –
He can only improve from here.
I’ll end this story on a positive note out of respect to the Super Bowl winner:

wonder if they comments will be turned on? Take your punishment like a man, Wanker.
English national losses badly in video game soccer and was sponsored by local socialist entity…oh I mean soccer club. I’m gonna need to tape my eyelids shut so my eyes don’t roll out of my head.
Jay train 🚂 reminds me of a type of guy who blew all his $$ at the nudie bar
At least he didn’t pull himself from the competition like a certain 30 million dollar a year quarterback did this past Sunday.
