Many professional footballers love playing FIFA in their spare time but none more so than David Meyler.

The Republic of Ireland and Hull City midfielder has made a name for himself as a star of YouTube and Twitch - streaming his gaming to millions of viewers.

Meyler's latest YouTube video shows him at a FIFA 18 "capture event", with 992,000 FIFA points to open packs of players for his FIFA Ultimate Team.

Meyler struck gold with the first pack he opened - and his reaction was brilliant. Warning: It contains some strong language.

In the video, Meyler says other gamers are "hating on him" for being lucky enough to pack Brazil legend Pele - regarded by many as the greatest player ever.

Meyler then opens silver category packs in an effort to find the FIFA version of himself.
