The relationship between football and computer games has finally gone full circle. This incredible FC Copenhagen video, documenting their derby victory on Sunday looks more like FIFA 15 than… well, FIFA 15.
Two of Danish football’s biggest sides faced off in Copenhagen as the home side ran out eventual 3-1 victors against rivals Brondy.
With a range of high definition cameras in use, the club filmed every aspect of the game to create arguably the greatest, most uplifting highlights reel we’ve ever seen.
Replicating the pre-match routine that can be seen on FIFA 15, the clip takes us through the tunnel, past the handshakes and all three Copenhagen goals.
The surreal clip consistently blurs the lines between reality and CGI, Delaney’s finesse finish and celebration being the prime example.
Have we really reached the point where a computer game, based on football, is now being recreated in real life by the subject on which it was initially based?
