Luton Town goalkeeper Harry Isted couldn’t get the the result the side were looking for, as Belgian outfit Genk thrashed the Hatters 4-1 to dump them out of the #UltimateQuaranTeam Cup competition.
With both the Premier League and EFL suspended until 30 April at the earliest, League Two outfit Leyton Orient decided to host a FIFA 20 tournament consisting of 128 teams from all over the globe, with representatives from Russia and Denmark among others.
The aim is to raise money for the EFL clubs who may have financial problems as a result of the postponement, whilst the rest of the pit will be split between the EFL’s chosen charity Mind, ans the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fundraiser, set up by the World Health Organisation.
Can you get 15/15 on this Luton quiz?
The Hatters, represented by Isted, took on a Genk side at the Luminus Arena who were controlled by none other than Abdullah Waiss, a professional FIFA player who represents the Belgian side in in the EPro League.
Despite the pre-match build up from Luton Town, the Hatters failed to live up to expectations, as they went down 4-1 to the Belgian outfit, with Kazenga LuaLua’s strike in the 60th minute of the contest proving to be nothing more than a consolation.
Isted took to Twitter to apologise for his poor showing, with the club even chipping in with their overriding thoughts….
Could’ve gone worse 🤷🏼♂️ The lads just didn’t turn up today! But we’ll bounce back when there’s another quarantine👊🏼🙌🏼 Safe trip home to the travelling faithful, could hear you all game, atmosphere was electric!🧡⚽️👒 https://t.co/hYeZi6Xx1V
