FIFA 18: EA Sports FINALLY caves in and gives Yannick Bolasie the El Tornado move

It's been a long old wait, but the pressure paid off

Yannick Bolasie hasn’t been happy with EA Sports.

The Everton winger, who spent much of this year injured, claims the new ‘El Tornado’ move is nothing more than his own Bolasie flick.

When playing for Crystal Palace against Tottenham in December 2014, Bolasie flicked the ball up and raced past Christian Eriksen and Roberto Soldado.

Citing this, he tweeted: “@EASPORTSFIFA What’s El Tornado? We call that the Bolasie Flick (RT if you agree).”

Lots of people did – more than 2,000, in fact – and it’s amassed more than 4,000 favourites.

But EA Sports was having none of it, and tweeted a gif of Cristiano Ronaldo performing the move back at the 28-year-old, along with the caption: “It’s good, but it’s not quite ElTornado”.

Bolasie, though, refused to give in – and last night tweeted EA again – hammering them with requests.


The pressure paid off, and EA buckled – finally adding the skill move to his repertoire on the game.

Sadly, that’s not the only thing Yannick wants changed.

He’s now asking for his ‘trim’ to get fixed, too.

One step at a time, Yannick.
