The 2012 FIFA Interactive World Cup (FIWC) winner, Alfonso Ramos, 24, lived every football fan’s dream when he attended the FIFA Ballon d’Or gala, where he met a host of the world’s top footballers and took on Barcelona star Gerard Pique at a game of FIFA 13. Follow Alfonso as he meets the biggest stars in the game – teaching Gerard Pique and Lionel Messi a thing or two along the way as he is welcomed at the 2012 FIFA Ballon d’Or Gala.

Commenting on the match, Alfonso said:

“Winning the FIWC and getting the chance to attend the FIFA Ballon d’Or really is a dream come true. For any football fan, this is without question one of the greatest experiences you can have. Meeting my heroes and getting the chance to play FIFA 13 against Piqué is something I will never forget.”

Despite his defeat, Pique was full of praise for Alfonso,

“Alfonso is the best player I have played against for sure. I don’t play FIFA as much as I’d like to, but I’m usually in the final against Leo (Messi) when we play at Barcelona so I’m not bad, but against Alfonso every player seems bad!”
