When did you start playing the EA SPORTS™ FIFA series?
I started playing in May 2008, so towards the end of the FIFA Interactive World Cup 2008 season. I first played FIFA 08.

Why do you take part in the FIFA Interactive World Cup?
Visiting the FIFA Ballon d’Or Gala this year and meeting my football idols like Ronaldo and Messi meant so much more to me than winning the prize money. I want to be there next year too!

What has been your best result at the FIWC leading up to the 2011 edition?
I am the FIWC10 champion and won the tournament last year in Barcelona.

How do you rate your chances for the FIWC11 Grand Final?
I do believe I will be able to defend my title because some of my top competitors have told me that I am better at FIFA 11 than I was at last year’s game, which gives me hope that I could win again. With a little bit of luck, anything can happen in FIFA 11!
