FIFA 18: EA Sports just made Antoine Griezmann much, much better

He's coming back from a goal draught

Antoine Griezmann may be one of the best strikers in FIFA 18 – but he’s just got that little bit better.

The Atletico Madrid star, who scored a stunning overhead kick last week against Roma, is just one of 22 players to get their ratings boosted by EA Sports as part of the Team of The Week.

Before that, however – the Frenchman was struggling to find the back of the net – scoring just six goals this season for his club.

Let’s take a closer look at Griezmann’s upgrades.
