This ultra-rare 100-rated Nicklas Bendtner FIFA card makes him better than Cristiano Ronaldo

The 29-year-old Dane received a special FIFA Mobile card that ranks him amongst the best ever

When we think of the best players in the world, Nicklas Bendtner probably wouldn’t be the first name that comes to mind.

But on FIFA, it’s a very different story.

In fact, a recent update has seen the great Dane awarded with a FIFA card that’s arguably better than Cristiano Ronaldo’s.

The original design from ‘Famian09’ was so impressive that it ended up making its way on to FIFA Mobile

So, how did it happen.

According to Futhead, EA recently solicited Twitter to put together a short list of players to include in its ‘Summer Celebration’.

Unsurprisingly, Bendtner became a rallying point for social media and Reddit alike.

One staple of the FIFA Mobile sub reddit – ‘Famian09’  – even made a pledge regarding the cult favourite:

After some other fans piled on the pressure, Famian09 then went one stage further and mocked up his very own Bendtner card.

Sadly, the 29-year-old missed out to Ricardo Quaresma, but the FIFA Mobile team were so impressed by Famian09’s effort, that they put his card in the game – exclusively for him.

Here it is in all its glory.

We’d sign him in a heartbeat.

So, what about FIFA 18 – How much will it cost?

FIFA 18 will cost around £49.99 – but given the demand, some outlets may undercut this.

We expect the cheapest the game will go for at launch to be around £45.
