FIFA 18: This is what happens when Europe’s best players take on South America’s finest

Surely this would be too close to call?

What team would win – 11 of Europe’s best players or 11 of America’s brightest stars?

YouTuber Rich Leigh decided to find out – and created the two teams in FIFA 18.

Let’s take a look at the line ups.

Lionel Messi and Neymar make up a devastating wing combination, while Los Blancos shot-stopped Keylor Navas gets the nod in goal.

The YouTuber then simmed a match between the two.

It takes less than 10 minutes for Ronaldo to net for Europe – finding the bottom right hand corner with a deft strike.

It doesn’t take long for Newell’s to fight back, though, with Higuain linking up well with Suarez before hammering a shot past Neuer.

Game on.

The Argentine does it again shortly after half-time to give Newell’s a 2-1 lead.

But Europe aren’t out of the race just yet – and mount a series of effective attacks, with Bale’s 59-minute effort just glancing wide of the post.

Arjen Robben, fresh off the bench, starts causing problems too – narrowly missing after a defensive mishap.

However, Navas keeps Newell’s in the game through a series of stunning body blocks.

The final whistle goes and Newell’s hang on to a 2-1 victory.

Unsurprisingly, it’s Higuain who picks up the man-of-the-match award – well deserved for his stunning brace.

Messi, bar a few moments of magic, had a quiet game while Casemiro’s input was minimal.

For Europe, Ronaldo was the best player – picking up a decent 8.0 rating, while Neuer did well between the sticks.

So, there you have it.

If Europe’s best players took on America’s stars, there’s a clear winner.

According to FIFA 18, anyway.
