Titled #CombatCorona, the charity live stream is aiming to raise funds in order to help finance the bid to beat coronavirus. Tierney said on Twitter: “Join me for the #CombatCorona FIFA 20 charity stream facing other pro footballers to raise funds to combat #Coronavirus. Dates announced soon.”

A similar post was uploaded to Gilmour’s Twitter account. Real Madrid superstar Gareth Bale is perhaps the biggest name involved with the tournament, with Manchester United pair Luke Shaw and Daniel James also announced.


Chelsea’s Mason Mount will feature too whilst Everton’s Dominic Calvert-Lewin will also take part. A date for this event is yet to be decided.

Tierney and Gilmour are one of many players stuck in a hiatus period as the world battles a health pandemic. The Scotland men are using their platform to hopefully inject some much-needed cash into the operation.
