FIFA 18: Toni Kroos begs EA Sports to boost his ratings

Surely the Real Madrid man is good enough already?

You’d think you’d be happy if you were amongst the best midfielders in FIFA 18?

Turns out Toni Kroos is far from it – and, despite his overall 90 rating – wants EA Sports to give him a boost.

Toni Kroos is the latest footballer to tweet to EA asking for an upgrade

The German isn’t too pleased with his speed rating, which currently hovers at 50.

In fact, he’s so unhappy with it that he tweeted EA Sports asking for an upgrade.

But does he have a point?

Take a look at this clip below – 50 pace certainly seems a little harsh.

On Konami’s PES 2018, the 27-year-old boasts a far more impressive 72 pace – making him much more of a threat moving forwards.

Not that speed’s the only weapon Kroos has in his arsenal.

With 81 shooting and 88 passing, the Los Blancos ace is capable of unlocking most defences in EA’s game.

If he were to get a speed boost, he’d be almost unstoppable.


Last week, EA finally gave Yannick Bolasie the ability to pull off the El Tornado skill move – after the Everton winger bombarded them on Twitter.

The 27-year-old, who has spent much of this year injured, claimed the move was nothing more than his own Bolasie flick.
