FUT server down yesterday due to EA maintenance

FUT server down,

It’s said that EA’s FUT server was down yesterday, according to the reports of Twitter and status update websites. This happens in prime time UK daytime, which means most people are not affected, because many people are working except some students.

We first heard about FIFA 15 UT servers going down early on Feb 11, 2015, in the morning from Product Reviews readers. After checking the Down Today website, it’s also clear that problems are taking place that seem to focus on getting connected to EA servers in the UK at least.

Also, checking the official EA Sports FIFA 15 channel reveals EA servers are unavailable due to maintenance taking place today (Feb 11). It’s unclear if players in the USA are also impacted, but you can see the said tweet below in the screenshot.

FUT server down,

Are you impacted by the FIFA 15 server maintenance today and can you buy FIFA 15 Coins? if so, what country are you in when seeing servers down? Hopefully, this maintenance doesn’t turn into an outage for many hours, as we have seen in the past. Reported problems this week could also be a reason for taking servers offline, which may fix issues players had earlier in the week.

Update: The FIFA 15 maintenance is scheduled for 3 hours and the times are 9AM to 12NOON, GMT. You should notice the downtime on PS4, Xbox One, and last generation platforms. If the downtime lasts longer than scheduled, then share a comment below.

Prince Ali and UEFA: react strongly to “doctored” FIFA report

Prince Ali and UEFA

There was a FIFA report into corruption, which was announced by FIFA president Sepp Blatter last year. Prince Ali Bin Al Hussein of Jordan and European soccer’s governing body UEFA claimed that the report has been modified, which made them react strongly on Monday.

German magazine Der Spiegel alleged on Saturday that FIFA officials altered references to Blatter in a draft presented by investigator Mark Pieth at the conclusion of his report.

Pieth’s original document criticised not only Blatter over his knowledge of the ISL bribery scandal 15 years ago but also complained UEFA had blocked proposals for reform of world soccer’s ruling body.

However, UEFA reacted angrily to that idea on Monday as did Prince Ali, a FIFA vice-president and executive committee member who is one of three men standing, with European support, against Blatter in this year’s presidential elections.

Prince Ali and UEFA

FIFA was not immediately available for comment.

“Media reports over the weekend are a reminder of why we need Michael Garcia’s report into FIFA’s World Cup bidding process to be published in full,” said Prince Ali in a statement.

“There does appear to be evidence of interference in the drafting of the so-called independent Pieth report by FIFA. This is deeply worrying and suggests something is not right at the heart of FIFA governance.

“Without publishing the Garcia report in full, FIFA faces the ongoing public suspicion interference may also have occurred in that case.”

The Pieth report made seven recommendations for reform if FIFA was to regain credibility.

In the final document delivered in April, Pieth gave FIFA credit for introducing a new independent ethics committee.

Der Speigel published what it said was a detailed analysis of where the report had been doctored.

Pedro Pinto, spokesman for UEFA president Michel Platini, said in a statement: “The latest revelations regarding the Pieth report show FIFA’s Independent Governance Committee was anything but independent.

“UEFA has always wondered why it was criticised by Mr Pieth and wrongly accused of blocking FIFA reforms. Now we understand why and where it all came from.”

Prince Ali and UEFA

Former U.S. attorney Garcia headed an investigatory chamber looking into the controversial bidding process for the 2018 and 2022 World Cups.

However, he quit in December after strongly disputing what was effectively an edited version of his report published by Judge Hans-Joachim Eckert, head of the adjudicatory chamber.

UEFA members are among those supporting Prince Ali, Dutch FA president Michael van Praag and Luis Figo of Portugal in their challenge to Blatter in the FIFA presidential election on May 29.

Many great FIFA 15 footballers comes from Serie A Pace XI

FIFA 15 footballers,

Who would you think of when talking about Italian football, masterful defenders like Paolo Maldini or wonderful technicians such as Andrea Pirlo? They both great footballers come from Serie A Pace XI, which is a cradle of talent footballers. However something has changed slowly, there is a new wave of players joining the league, all footballers feel stress.

We have already covered the Bundesliga and La Liga for pace teams in FIFA 15, where pace is king, and we got what we were expecting, some exceptional players with speed to burn. When we started building the Serie A team we were in for a total shock though and the end result is perhaps the most exciting team of all the ones that we have created so far. Normally we make the team gold level only but as you will see we made a couple of exceptions for this team. Let’s get started.

GK: Samir Handanovic – Inter Milan

The Slovenian number one may not have a reputation of a particularly quick player but he is the fastest keeper in Serie A and you’re getting an exceptional shot stopper into the bargain. Whilst Inter Milan have been going through their transition phase Handanovic was the constant during the period, producing a series of consistently excellent performances. He also boasts an exceptional penalty record during his time in Serie A with both Inter and Udinese.

FIFA 15 footballers,

RB: Ignazio Abate – Milan

Abate is now a silver player, such is his decline in form over the past couple of seasons but his pace stat is up at a formidable 92, making him one of the quicker full-backs in the game, let alone Serie A. You’re going to have to be switched on when you’re defending with him as he isn’t the best defensively but going forward he’s all sorts of fun.

CB: Kostas Manolas – Roma

Roma are quickly becoming one of the most exciting teams in the game to play with and the arrival over the summer of Manolas just contributed to that. The Greek international impressed during the World Cup and he’s a very talented young player with the potential to become an excellent centre-back in the future. The standout stat for us though is his pace stat of 79, which is as high as Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos.

CB: Martin Caceres – Juventus

Caceres isn’t necessarily first choice at Juventus due to the performances of the current central three of Leonardo Bonucci, Giorgio Chiellini and Angelo Ogbonna however whenever he has played this season he has look accomplished. The Uruguayan international has an impressive 82 pace and he is a no brainer alongside Manolas in this team.

LB: Pablo Armero – Milan The Colombian has played on the him wing and at wing-back but now he’s a full-back with Milan and like Abate he’s gone down to a silver rating due to his inconsistent performances over the past couple of seasons. However despite this his pace stands at 89 which is fairly impressive and will make him fun to play with.

FIFA 15 footballers,

CM: Mateo Kovacic – Inter Milan

With central midfielders there are few around who have genuine blistering pace and often when picking these teams it’s the younger players who make it in this position and this team is no exception. Kovacic is one of the most exciting young players in Europe right now and the Croatian has pace of 82. This is a tidy stat given his position and the real benefit of having Kovacic in the team is his ability to pick a pass like this.
CM: Romulo – Juventus

In this team Romulo acts as the defensive muscle with the second highest physical stat of all your offensive players. He’s a useful player to have in your side because he can play in a number of different positions and with a pace stat of 83 he will be able to track your opponent’s midfield runners.

RM: Jonathan Biabiany – Parma

With outrageous hair and pace Biabiany is a brilliant player to watch tear down the wing and the Frenchman is one of the quickest players in the game this year. His pace stat is at an astonishing 96 and when he gets going down the wing it’s going to be hard to stop him, just knock it and run.

CAM: Juan Iturbe – Roma

Iturbe is technically a right winger but he’s not as quick as Biabiany despite a pace stat of 92 and, although he isn’t the best passer, his pace and dribbling ability will make him a threat when he’s running at the defence. The Argentine was a big money move over the summer and he’s someone we love playing with.

FIFA 15 footballers,

LM: Gervinho – Roma

Just another Roma in this team and if the legs in Francesco Totti have gone the players around him are more than making up for that and Gervinho is one of those. The former Arsenal man’s pace stat is up at 93 and although he can be a touch frustrating at times playing with him is far easier, don’t always cut inside though as it will start to become predictable. We hope you’ll be able to instil some steel into him after this moment in the final of the African Cup of Nations.

ST: Seydou Doumbia- Roma

It seems outrageous that a Serie A pace team can be without Victor Ibarbo but Roma’s new signing is kept out of the side by another new Roma signing, Doumbia. The Ivorian forward, who has a pace stat of 93, joined in the January window from CSKA Moscow and with him, Ibarbo, Iturbe, and Gervinho up front we think that the Italians now have the quickest squad in the game and they may well be the new Borussia Dortmund on FIFA 15.

Perform well in a celebration on FIFA 15

perform well, FIFA 15

There are some young players become a leader, who has already scored in a celebration with a unfriendly way maybe. It’s not easy for you to against these guys in the game actually.

You equalise, and instead of focussing on getting another goal to take the advantage, you focus your attentions on doing the most petty thing that anyone can do on FIFA. Something so petty that is is strangely irresistible. EVERYONE has found themselves guilty of this most cardinal of sins at one stage of their virtual career.

You send your scorer round the perimeter of the pitch in a celebration that lasts well over 30 seconds and has your opponent breaking sweat while their controller bares the brunt of their frustrations.

The school of connoisseurs and students of the virtual game, that you are undoubtedly one of, are better than this.
They see a celebration for what it really is. A celebration is a moment of elation that when coupled with the artistry of choreography, is either the most delightful or painstaking sight in football depending on who has scored.

perform well, FIFA 15

There are 40 celebrations of FIFA 15 that you can perform. Every one is a thing of beauty in their own right.

Some are simple, some are complicated, but all of them are worthy of being the proverbial cherry on top of your goal flavoured cake.

Learning how to deal with every celebration can help you to have a good beginning, which means you can agianst other players at the same level.

New upgrades will be released next Friday

new upgrades, next Friday

We just got a message that the date of FIFA 15 winter upgrades has released by EA Sport not long ago. This year’s upgrades will bring some surprise to all of us football fans, we hope. It’s said that new upgrades will be released next Friday, February 13th, 2015, which means we can buy upgraded players soon.

The anticipation is building for winter upgrades, following the remarkable TOTY release that featured a 99-rated Cristiano Ronaldo and 96-rated Manuel Neuer. In addition, EA has released four batches of winter transfers to-date. What’s next?

new upgrades, next Friday

Understanding Upgrades

Gold In-Forms

The regular card located in transfer market and in your club remains the same. The in-form (IF) card only come in new packs. However, the in-forms both on the market and in the club receive a ‘live’ boost equal to that of the upgrade.

For example, if Alexandre Lacazette gets upgraded from a 79 to an 81 the this is what will happen. His 79 card will not be changed, but will be replaced in packs with his 81 card. His 80 and 81 rated in-forms that people own will automatically be upgraded to 82 and 83 in-forms, with stats upgraded to correspond with his new overall.

Silver In-Forms

Whenever a silver player gets upgraded to a gold card, the silver IF card does not get upgraded. For example, if Harry Kane gets an upgrade from a 68 to 76 gold card, his 71 IF card remains the same.

new upgrades, next Friday

No In-Forms

If a player has not received an IF card, but will get an upgrade, the old card located on the market or in your club remains the same. The newly upgraded card will only come in new packs. There will be a resulting drop in price of the old card and a price hike for the new card.

There will be so many great players which you want to buy to enlarge your ultimate team, so start saving your FIFA 15 coins!

Top 10 players in Pre-Champions League

top 10 players, Pre-Champions League

It’s really not easy for me to make a list of ten best players in the Pre-Champions League. During the World Cup last July, I hastily assembled a “Top 10″ list of the best soccer players in the world, which many guys do not agree with me. My list have some changes belongs to the older one, let’s have a look together!

Then again, the function of Internet lists isn’t to be accurate, but rather to spur debate and/or outrage about someone’s fully arbitrary opinion. So with that in mind, it was time to revisit the list and make amends. This updated list is taking current form of early February 2015 into account, more than long-standing reputation and or ratings in FIFA 15, so apologies, Andres Iniesta.

10. Diego Godín, Atletico Madrid/Uruguay

As if you didn’t already know, the Ballon d’Or is a flimsily disguised popularity contest. This year it completely ignored Atletico Madrid’s excellent season. Is Godín the best center back in the world? Possibly, although the unofficial mantle is held by PSG’s Thiago Silva. Full disclosure: this list probably needs one defensive player on and Godín is the best of the shallow pool, plus he’s excellent on set pieces, meriting a few bonus points.

top 10 players, Pre-Champions League

9. Neymar, Barcelona/Brazil

Few players prompt such dividing opinions as the now 23-year-old Brazil captain. Is he a one-trick show pony or a legit superstar and the most-talented player in Spain after the Big Two?

Many players cashed in thanks to YouTube mixtapes and highlight reels. In isolation, trick moves entertain but often mean nothing toward the outcome of matches. What sets Neymar apart is that beyond dribbling, he’s an efficient scorer with an insanely powerful shot. 37 goals across 67 games for Barcelona is impressive, even by the clubs’s high-scoring standards. More impressive is 42 international goals in a mere 60 games for Brazil, albeit most of them friendlies.

8.  Bayern Munich/Germany

Confirmed as the best keeper in the world via a third-place finish at the Ballon d’Or voting. He also likes to do crazy stuff like this when he strays off his line to become a #sweeperkeeper:

7. Diego Costa, Chelsea/Spain

Let’s consider these facts about the Brazil-born Spanish international. Atletico Madrid fended off both Real Madrid and Barcelona last season, winning La Liga title thanks in no small part to Costa — the offensive spear at the end of Diego Simeone’s compact, defensive system — scoring 27 goals. In August he made an instant impact at Chelsea, turning Jose Mourinho’s team into the Premier League favorites — a mantle the Blues haven’t relinquished. Costa now has 17 goals in 19 EPL games, not too shabby given how many strikers (Andriy Shevchenko, Afonso Alves, Mateja Kezman, etc.) struggle after moving to England.

Yes Costa might be a master of the dark arts. No, he won’t receive a Christmas card from Martin Skrtel or Emre Can any time soon. Either way, Costa’s current form makes him the best old-fashioned, traditional No. 9 in the world.

top 10 players, Pre-Champions League

6. Alexis Sánchez, Arsenal/Chile

In the mood for a strained, dated music comparison? Too bad, you’re getting one. Alexis Sánchez at Barcelona was a bit like Phil Collins in Genesis, a part of a greater whole. At Arsenal, Sánchez is Phil Collins’ solo career. Does that make sense? Here’s a link to Sussudio. Sing along. It’ll brighten your day.

Long term, putting Sánchez ahead of the likes of Bale, Di María or Rodriguez is questionable, but at the moment — pending his current hamstring injury — he’s performing as one of the world’s best, carrying Arsenal at times this season in EPL play with 12 goals and seven assists.

5. Paul Pogba, Juventus/France

The French midfielder checked in at No. 7 on my July list, and that was before he picked up Best Young Player honors at the World Cup and carried his form into the Serie A season with Juventus, where the 21-year-old’s staked a claim as the best player in Italy. If you were starting a team from scratch today you’d want Pogba as the anchor, given he can play any midfield role and only keeps improving as an offensive weapon on the edge of the penalty area thanks to a rasping shot. Eventually you could see Pogba develop into a 10-goal per year scorer, possibly more if he takes penalties.

4. Eden Hazard, Chelsea/Belgium

This is going to sound almost moronically simplistic: Eden Hazard is a great soccer player and the best in the EPL at the moment. What stands out to me about Hazard is how his greatness almost blends in with the scenery at Stamford Bridge. Most great players, regardless of the sport, tend to provoke strong feelings or opinions among fans. Aside from the isolated incident when he kicked the ball boy — it turned out later the kid bragged about trying to impact the game — what is there to say about Hazard?

top 10 players, Pre-Champions League

Actually, it’s quite refreshing to find a star athlete that let’s his or her play stand alone on its own merits independent of anything else.

3. Arjen Robben, Bayern Munich/The Netherlands

Here’s a statement you wouldn’t expect to read about Arjen Robben: He is the Dave Grohl of soccer. Like Grohl performing with Nirvana, Foo Fighters, Queens of the Stone Age and Tenacious D, Robben finds success wherever he goes, although the Dutchman is the consummate solo artist on the field. Still, whatever his (mostly negative) reputation is to Americans, Robben remains an amazing player, one with winner’s medals in England, Spain and Germany along with a Champions League triumph with Bayern Munich. He’s been the primary reason why the Netherlands finished runner-up and third at consecutive World Cups, too.

2. Lionel Messi, Barcelona/Argentina

There is really nothing left to say about Messi that hasn’t already been said, aside from speculating on his future and if it lies away from the Camp Nou. Anyways, Messi vs. Ronaldo is a ready-made, easy debate, but a better way to look at it is that as soccer fans we’re lucky to be alive to watch them both at the peak of their all-time, historic powers.

top 10 players, Pre-Champions League

1. Cristiano Ronaldo, Real Madrid/Portugal

Portugal flamed out in the Group Stage at the World Cup, which is the only blemish on Ronaldo’s on-field resume the last 16 months or so … if you forget he carried his nation into the tournament by himself in the playoff vs. Sweden. Should elite players like Ronaldo or Messi be judged on their isolated performances at major international tournaments, often in three game bursts, or let their standing on the club level suffice? If we do that, Ronaldo’s resume remains flawless and in 2013-14 he set the record for most goals in a Champions League campaign with 17, as Real Madrid knocked Barcelona and Bayern off the unofficial “Best Club in the World” perch. That form carried into the 2014-15 season where he’s already totaled 34 goals in 24 games.


UK’s best-selling game in January: FIFA 15 rank the third

best-selling game, FIFA 15

We can see that FIFA 15 was third in the best-selling game list(DEC 28-JAN 24), which was released by industry site MCV. I am amazed that Grand Theft Auto 5 was the first, i have never played this game, it’s really boring. I love sports game so much, i am a die-hard fan of FIFA 15 actually!

Rockstar’s open-world hit managed to outsell Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare and FIFA 15, despite enticing price promotions on Activision’s shooter.

Far Cry 4, meanwhile, was the fourth best-selling game of the month, with Assassin’s Creed Unity finishing in fifth. There are no real surprises throughout the rest of the Top 40, although Microsoft will likely be disappointed with Halo: The Master Chief Collection’s performance, ending the month immediately behind last-gen adventure Assassin’s Creed Rogue and Call of Duty: Ghosts. Overall software sales for the month are said to be 3.5 per cent down on 2014, although they reportedly generated 4.5 per cent more revenue. Check out the top 40 below.

The virtual show: Jahic vs Rosenmeier

virtual show, Jahic, Rosenmeier

There was an wonderful virtual match between the world champion and current Virtual Bundesliga (VBL) Champion Mirza Jahic on FIFA 15, when August Rosenmeier was visiting to Zurich for the FIFA Ballon d’Or 2014. They are both the number one, but one is in real world, the other in virtual world. If you want to watch the virtual show, click into fifacoinsfit.org for whole video!

“When I was asked if I wanted to play an exhibition match against the FIWC Champion at the Ballon d’Or, I didn’t hesitate for a second,” Jahic said, “I am a competitive player and my goal is to be the best in the world. To play against the best was a great experience for me even though it was just a friendly.”

The 24-year old self-defence instructor currently lives in Austria, where he runs his own martial arts school. When Mirza isn’t practicing Wing Tsun Li, he’s playing FIFA 15. So what is the Virtual Bundesliga and how tough is it to become the champion? “The Virtual Bundesliga is the biggest tournament in Germany to determine the best FIFA Player in Germany, Switzerland and Austria,” explained Jahic. “You have to stay focused all the time and believe in yourself. Germany has many strong players. It is very hard to be the best.”

August vs. Mirza

August’s Denmark proved impenetrable, as did Jahic’s Germany. With the score still 0-0 after extra-time, the match was decided on penalties. August displayed the composure that has helped him secure the world title, scoring his first four penalties while Jahic could only manage to score one of his first three. “This was our first match ever, but I have a feeling that it won’t be our last,” said Jahic after losing against the world champion. “It was a very close game. We neutralized each other and both of us defended very well. I had three big chances to take the lead but I missed every time. It was very hard to get through August’s defense. Playing him, you can see why he is currently the best.”

Now that Jahic has had a taste of what awaits in Munich at the Grand Final, the Bosnian gamer is eager to make it to the FIWC showpiece. “I know that I can keep up with the best of the best,” he said, “my goal now is to make it the FIWC Grand Final. I have never played in a Grand Final before, but I have a feeling that my time might come soon.”

Mirza’s FIWC history

The VBL Champion is no stranger to the FIFA Interactive World Cup. In 2011, Mirza came within just minutes of securing a seat at the FIWC 2011 Grand Final in Los Angeles. Mirza managed to survive the pre-qualification phase for the Germany, Austria, and Switzerland live qualification event for FIWC 2011, which was held in Berlin. At the live event, 40 pre-qualified players competed for the one available Grand Final seat.

“It was my first live event and I made it to the final match,” he said. “In the final, I was leading 2:0 all the way up to the 73rd minute. Then my opponent scored from his very first corner. In the end I lost 3:2 because of inexperience. My dreams were crushed. Next time I will take my chance.”

virtual show, Jahic, Rosenmeier

Mirza’s opponent in that fateful final was Manuel Waibel. The German 
would go on to compete in the Los Angeles Grand Final, but failed to make it out of Group D, which was packed with seasoned FIWC players such as Alfonso Ramos, Ruben Zerecero and eventual FIWC11 bronze medalist Mark Azzi.

Jahic thinks that was really an good experience to have a virtual fight against the world champion on FIFA 15. He can easily feel the kind of his Germany friends and hope to have a match with world’s best FIFA players at the Grand Final.

La Liga Pace XI: guider of FIFA 15 players

La Liga Pace, guide

FIFA 15 is a very popular game with passion, which loved by many football fans. We all like to buy a great player instead of an average player. What is key between them, it’s pace which judges a player usually. With pace a normal player can become an excellent one. La Liga Pace XI was created to provide guidance for all the players, who wants to be a great footballer.

A collection of the quickest players currently based in La Liga and we’re very impressed with the results, this is one seriously quick side and is a joy to play with. The only criteria we have is that they have to be playing regularly for their side and be a gold level player. We’ve also tried to get player in their natural positions wherever possible which has led to the exclusion of a couple of players. Without further ado let’s get onto the the FIFA 15 La Liga Pace XI.

GK: Diego Alves – Valencia

Valencia’s penalty saving expert is in the team ahead of the likes of Keylor Navas or Claudio Bravo with an impressive speed stat of 55. Outside of the established top three Alves is probably the best keeper there is with excellent reflexes and good ability in the area. If you want a goalkeeper capable of playing in a system with a high line where he can sweep up any long balls over the top then Alves is your man.

La Liga Pace, guide

RB: Oscar de Marcos – Athletic Bilbao

Athletic have lost a lot of talent in the past couple of windows but luckily players like De Marcos remain and although he’s one of the most attacking full-backs around he’s still a full-back. With pace of 90 he’s the second quickest player in your back four and this will be crucial in helping combat wide players. The best thing about De Marcos is that you can use him elsewhere if you have injuries and as everyone knows versatility is a crucial asset on FIFA.

CB: Sergio Ramos – Real Madrid

Put simply Ramos is the best defender in the game on FIFA with a brilliant combination of tackling, passing and pace. The latter of those stats stands at 79 for Ramos and it goes to show why he is a must have for every Ultimate Team player. It’s incredible to think that he’s still just 28 years old given that he’s been around for ever and has once every trophy available to him.

CB: Raphael Varane – Real Madrid

If Ramos is the experience in the team than Varane is the exciting potential and the reason why Pepe struggles to get a look in for FIFA players. The young French defender is highly coveted by Chelsea and their manager Jose Mourinho and it will be interesting to see where the baulk of his career has spent. It’s hard to argue with a pace stat of 76 for a central defender so we won’t and we’ll just admire this touch over and over again.

La Liga Pace, guide

LB: Jordi Alba – Barcelona

It’s hard to think of a more adventurous full-back than Jordi Alba given the way the Spaniard presses forward and looks to act as a second wide man. In Alba’s defend when you have a player like Neymar ahead of you who is constantly cutting inside then a full-back is always going to want to try and exploit that space and with pace of 92 it’s pretty easy for him to do that.

CM: Enzo Perez – Valencia

Perez’s move to Valencia was confirmed at the start of January although he has been in the offing for some time and it is just another high class addition that makes the club look like real challengers for the European places once more. Perez has a pace stat of 80 which is brilliant for a central midfielder and with a great all round set of attributes Perez has a role in any side.

CM: Luka Modric – Real Madrid

Incredibly, given their propensity to attack with pace there are no Atletico Madrid players in this line-up but there are plenty of Real Madrid players and Modric earns his place in the side as one of the best central midfielders in Europe right now. His pace is slightly lower than Perez at 76 but he is the player who will control your midfield and orchestrate your play.

CAM: James Rodriguez – Real Madrid

For most people Colombian attacking midfielder James Rodriguez is an absolute delight to play with due to the fact that he has pace, dribbling ability and long shots. His pace is 80 and acting as the creative hub in the team he will be a key player to link the defend to the attack. Like many players in this team Rodriguez benefits from being able to play in a number of different positions and of course he’s capable of moments like this.

La Liga Pace, guide

RM: Gareth Bale – Real Madrid

Perhaps unsurprisingly Bale didn’t move from Madrid to Manchester United during the January transfer window and that means that he remains an option for the La Liga pace team. In fact he is the leading light in the La Liga pace team with a pace stat of 94 making him a real threat coming in from the right hand side.

LM: Cristiano Ronaldo – Real Madrid

The sixth and final member of the Real Madrid contingent in this team is the current World Player of the Year Cristiano Ronaldo who is the perfect left forward with his pace and ability to cut in and shoot. Ronaldo can’t quite match Bale for speed but with pace of 93 he’s hardly slow. He’s capable of scoring from more or less anywhere and you should utilise that ability in your squad.

ST: Lionel Messi – Barcelona

Despite losing out to Ronaldo in the individual awards for the past two years Messi remains the best player on FIFA with an overall rating of 94 and that makes the little magician the perfect option to lead your line. With 93 pace he matches Ronaldo and his 96 dribbling and 89 shooting makes him one of the most lethal strikers around.
