The Liverpool forward shook up the world with an incredible performance over the weekend, and not on the pitch. Check out how Diogo Jota ranked #1, climbing to the top of the FUT Champions leaderboard.
Former Wolves star now a Liverpool man, Diogo Jota just can't stay out of the headlines this season. He arrived to the Merseyside in outstanding form, bagging nine goals in his first seventeen appearances for the club.
Diogo then suffered an unfortunate knee injury which has kept him on the sidelines for two months now. However, there was a silver lining in his injury absence.
Jota, a major FIFA player, has surely been given hours upon hours to sharpen his skills on the sticks while recovering from injury. In fact, his abilities have taken him to the top of the gaming world.
Diogo Jota FIFA 21 Weekend League
Diligent supporters are already well aware of Diogo Jota's supreme FIFA skills. Just last season he beat his (now) teammate Trent Alexander-Arnold in the finals of the ePremier League Invitational tournament.
But that pales in comparison to what Jota accomplished just this past weekend. He left his mark on the FIFA 21 FUT Champions league, the highest level competition in FIFA Ultimate Team.
Jota won all 30 of his FIFA 21 Weekend League matches, an astonishing feat. And even more impressive, his score was good enough for #1 in the world on PlayStation.
