Walsall FC shot-stopper Liam Roberts and striker Josh Gordon visited Smyths Toy Superstore, at the Crown Wharf Shopping Centre, for Fifa 20's launch.

And Saddlers fans were able to grab themselves an exclusive copy of the game with a Walsall sleeve to celebrate their club – with the players taking time out to sign the copies, in between facing off with fans.

Josh Gordon, a big Fifa fan, said he was delighted with the turnout.

The 24-year-old said: "It was great to see so many of our fans at the meet and greet .

“It’s great to be out and about in the community doing these kind of events.

"It’s always nice to interact with fans and to chat with them about all things Walsall.

“So many people play Fifa, including myself, so to be able to come and play against some of the young fans is good because it allows us to continue to rebuild the bond between the club and the fans by being out and about in the community."

The club teamed up with the toy store to give away two lots of 2,200 Fifa points – used to buy packs of players in the game – to celebrate the game's launch.

It can be played on Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and the Nintendo Switch.
