FIFA 18: This incredible clip shows just devastating EA Sports has made Ronaldinho

FIFA 18 fans – prepare to get even more excited.

Footage has emerged on Twitter showing just how good Ronaldinho will be in the upcoming game. And it’s a thing of beauty.

Brazilian Ronaldinho couldn’t be tempted with a switch to the Premier League

The clip uploaded by Twitter user Danny shows the Brazilian legend in full force during a FIFA 18 match.

Ronaldinho receives the ball before standing still and allowing three defenders to close him down.

He then darts off to the left, dummies one of them, before rainbow-flicking it over the last one and volleying it into the back of the net.

Fans have waited years to play with Ronaldinho in FIFA, even resorting to creating their own version in FIFA 17.

This year, EA ditched Xbox exclusive Legends in favour of multi-platform Icons.

This means PS4, PC and Switch players will have access to a number of retired legends.


FIFA 18 fans will be able to play with three versions of their favourite stars, thanks to a feature called FUT ICONS stories.

Legends such as Pele, Ronaldo Nazario, Thierry Henry, Lev Yashin and Diego Maradona will have three different cards each – all available in FIFA Ultimate Team.

The Brazilian legend’s top card in FIFA 18 is a 94 rated beast

The cards each reflect each different stage of a player’s career – the beginning, their prime and tail-end. All cards have different stats and appearances.

The best card is a 98-rated Pele – reflecting the Brazilian’s ability in the 1970s.

Ronadinho, meanwhile, will have an 89 rated card, a 91 rated one and a 94 rated FUT card – ranking him amongst the game’s best players.

We can’t wait to give him a run out… if we pack him, that is!
