Prior to their upcoming Premier League clash this weekend, Manchester City ace Joleon Lescott and Sunderland sharpshooter Fraizer Campbell faced off in a Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 Grudge Match. After a session of intense game play, Campbell was crowned the Grudge Match champion.
The two rivals battled it out on the new maps featured within the first collection for the title – which includes scenes of the crash-site of Air Force One, a skyscraper, a militarised Central Park and an idyllic Italian seaside village. The match was an ‘away-game’ for Campbell, taking place in Manchester’s Malmaison Hotel.
Victorious striker Campbell said; “It definitely got us both pumped coming head-to-head on Call of Duty MW3 before the game on Saturday. I won 3-1 and if we can replicate that on the pitch it will be a right result. When I’m not playing football or, more recently, changing nappies, you can usually find me on Call of Duty. The new maps are fantastic to play – Joleon should’ve known he didn’t stand a chance!”
City centre-back Lescott added; “I never like to lose whether it’s on or off the pitch. I’ve had good fun today – the new Modern Warfare 3 maps are amazing, but I hope to even the score with Fraizer on Saturday!”
