FIFA 19: 7 absolute beasts who’ll be the strongest players on the game

We pick who's destined to be an absolute beast in EA SPORTS' upcoming football game

FIFA 18 isn’t just about speed and skill, strength is just as important – and these players have it in bucket loads.

Especially given just how much weight EA has given the in-game shielding mechanic.

We go through the 10 players we predict will be the strongest in FIFA 19. You wouldn’t want to mess with this lot.

Kendall Waston


The Costa Rica international boasts a lethal combination of 95 strength and 94 aggression.

Add to the mix that he’s 6ft 5ins and the 29-year-old is someone you definitely wouldn’t want to play against.

Florian Ballas


Ballas may be slow, but his 6ft 5ins frame and 94 strength rating more than make up for it.

A former Germany under-19 player, he’s only 24 years old, so expect him to climb up the rankings year on year.

Jannik Vestergaard

 The 6ft 6ins Dane boats 94 strength and a solid 81 aggression.

According to Futhead, he seems to be getting stronger with age, which is good news for FIFA 18 fans.

Wilfried Bony


The 29-year-old Swansea striker is one of most physically imposing front men around.

Has a decent 81 rating for physicality, but it’s 90 strength that really catches the eye.

Not bad for a striker!

Abdoul Ba


This 6ft 7ins specimen is one of the tallest players in FIFA 18 and will command the box during corners.

Currently playing for AJ Auxerre, Ba boasts an impressive 90 for strength.

Roman Torres


The 6ft 2ins Panamanian is the strongest player in FIFA 18 – thanks to an upgraded Hero card rocketing his score to 99.

A big man with a big afro who’s currently tearing it up for MLS side Seattle Sounders.

Adebayo Akinfenwa


The Beast will want to come back stronger than ever in this year’s game.

His base card held an amazing 98 score – the second highest rating for that attribute behind the boosted Torres.

Time will tell whether he can win back the crown this year.
