Wayne Rooney & FIFA 18
The Sun on Sunday have an eye-catching article on how FIFA 18 diehards can take on Wayne Rooney online.
According to the Sun, Rooney takes on members of the public playing behind a fake name.
And Man United’s all-time record goalscorer has taken his fake name from the biggest TV show on the planet. Readers are told the following:
Wayne Rooney is secretly trying to put opponents to the sword in online computer battles by posing as Game of Thrones character Jon Snow.
A source said: “Wayne loves playing FIFA against pals like his old team-mate Wes Brown but sometimes he also likes to take on random strangers.
“He hides who he is by using a fake name and chose Jon Snow as he loves Game of Thrones.”
In a classic Sun move, the red-top then went on to compare Coleen Rooney to Daenerys Targaryen.

Rooney should be back in action for Everton on Sunday as Arsenal visit Goodison Park.
The match will surely bring back great memories for Rooney. Fifteen years ago, when he was still a teenager, Rooney announced himself to the world with a screamer against the Gunners in this fixture.
