    will you play football with us on Sunday

    Hello,

    I have to choose the correct verb for the following sentence:

    Are you going / will you play football with us on Sunday, Jack?

    Are you going would imply Jack knows about the game.
    I'm wondering if a native speaker might utter "will you...?" if they have, for example, run into Jack in the steet and decided to invite him to join in.


    Thank you.
