Can a full team of strikers win the league in FIFA 17?

YouTuber Rich Leigh decided to find out using the game's Career Mode

FIFA 17 Career Mode is tough – especially when it comes to picking a balanced team.

So, what would happen if you fielded a team made up solely of the world’s best strikers?

You’d think a team of strikers would score a load of goals, right? Well, you’d be wrong

YouTuber Rich Leigh, who’s made a name himself on the platform for conducting FIFA experiments, decided to find out using Barcelona.

Let’s take a look at that line up.

Barcelona’s Luis Suarez is in goal, with Mario Mandžukić and Kevin Prince Boateng protecting him.

There’s an imposing midfield set up of Sergio Aguero, Paulo Dybala, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

While, up front, Antoine Griezmann, Gonzolo Higuain, Robert Lewandowski and Alexis Sanchez lead the charge.

Surely this team would be unstoppable, right?

Well, it’s not the best start – with Barca losing 2-1 against Sevilla – followed by a 6-1 loss to them again.

Suarez is so miserable that he asks to leave the club – just two games into the season.

Barca then go on to lose against Bilbao 4-1, but pick up their first win against Deportivo Alaves 2-1.

Poor old Suarez takes a hammering from the media – for not scoring.

Although, given the fact he’s playing in goal, we think they’re being a bit harsh.

A draw to Deportivo soon comes,  followed by a 2-1 win against Granada.

Sadly, any hope of a run of form is short-lived, as the team find themselves knocked out of the Copa del Rey.

The board soon lose patience and terminate the manager’s contract – with Barca sitting in 15th place.

Before long the board lose patience and sack their manager
