Millwall have been draw away to Eredivisie side VVV-Venlo in the second-round of the Quarantine Cup, which is being hosted be League Two outfit Leyton Orient during the current pause of English football.
With all games across the UK and Europe currently suspended until the end of April, the O’s decided to create an online FIFA 20 tournament involving 128 different clubs from all over the globe.
The draw for the opening round took place live on Orient’s Twitter on Friday – with the Lions matching up against Scottish Premiership side Hibernian in what was the first ever competitive meeting between the sides.
And it was Millwall that progressed in an extremely one-sided affair as a Jon Dadi Bodvarsson hat-trick helped the Lions, represented by YouTuber Josh Zerker and FIFA player for FUTWIZ Jamie O’Doherty, thrash the Scots 7-1 on aggregate to comfortably book their place in the last 64.
Despite some first-round games left to play, the draw for round two was made on Tuesday morning and it’s fair to say that Millwall fans were left excited with what is another interesting European away tie.
Millwall fans, clearly in the spirit of the tournament, reacted to the news on Twitter with a carefree attitude. You can see some of their best tweets below….
