EA has got something very wrong with Lionel Messi’s updated Fifa Ultimate Team card

Hundreds of players are going through a ‘Ratings Refresh’ in FIFA 17 – seeing their scores increase or decrease to more accurately reflect their real-world performances.

Along with updated ratings, some players are also getting new pictures. After all, the game is now a few months old and player appearances can change in that time.

But, bizarrely, they’ve not managed to properly update one of the game’s biggest players.

Lionel Messi.

The Argentine, 29,ditched his blonde locks a while back, but is still boasting them in the updated pic.


It didn’t take long for the Reddit community to spot the outdated barnet and voice their disappointment.

This could have something to do with Pro Evolution Soccer developer Konami’s relationship with Barcelona… but this is pure speculation.

Arsenal’s Olivier Giroud, Neymar and Luis Suarez are among the players to receive refreshed faces on the FUT cards.

Looks like you’ll have to endure that blond hair for a few more months.
