Following the Iron's second round draw against FC Emmen in the FIFA Ultimate Quaran-Team tournament, we can now reveal our full pathway through the competition should we see of the Eredivisie side.
Making it through to the last-32 would be a big achievement though, especially considering the opposition's 10-0 victory over Port Vale in the first round.
It doesn't get much easier from there on in for the Iron's representative, who will have to take on either the other 10-0 winners from the Round of 128, Angers, or Melbourne Victory, who produced the comeback of the round as they came from 3-1 down to win 4-3 in stoppage time against Ipswich Town.

We are thankful to everyone who has already been so kind during this difficult period. Your money will help to raise vital funding for EFL clubs who are going to have massive financial struggles (as of course will many industries across the world) during this time of fixture postponement. With no match day income for the foreseeable future football clubs are struggling and things will only get worse.
If this cause can play a small way for clubs going during an unprecedented time, then it would be an amazing force for good. 75% of money raised will be given to the EFL within 28 days.
Secondly, the remaining 25% will be split between for two very worthy causes. One is the EFL’s chosen charity ‘MIND’ (219830), and secondly in funding the all-important COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fundraiser by WHO.
