FIFA 18: Adebayo Akinfenwa may not be the strongest player in the next game

Wycombe Wanderers’ Adebayo Akinfenwa is the strongest player in FIFA 17.

But that could all be about to change.

Enter Colchester United’s George Elokobi. And he’s no weed, either.

In fact, the pair have been locked in a monumental power struggle for years, but FIFA 18 could see the Cochester man steal Akinfenwa’s crown.

We go through their FIFA ratings over the past seven years to see just how likely that is.

The attributes we focused on were their combined “Physical” rating (Jumping, stamina, strength and aggression), as well as singling out “Strength”

Where these weren’t included in the original cards, we’ve put them in below.

So, it’s decided.

Elokobi wins it when it comes to ‘Physical’ prowess, but for raw “Strength”, Akinfenwa is still clinging on.

However, at 34 years old, how many more years can he stay at the top?

Could FIFA 18 see a power change?
