FIFA 18: The worst Premier League striker ever just made the Team of the Week

You've got to be kidding, EA Sports

EA Sports today released FIFA 18’s Team of the Week – and there’s one very surprising addition.

Amongst the likes of Tottenham Hotspur star Son Heung-Min, Leicester City hero Riyad Mahrez and Manchester derby winner Nicolas Otamendi lies Jozy Altidore.

The very same Altidore who played 70 Premier League games for Hull and Sunderland – and netted a grand total of two goals.

Back when Paulo Di Canio was managing the Black Cats, he spent £6m on the US international.

Altidore repayed his manager’s faith – registering just one strike in 42 league games.

He was big and strong – he could have been incredible.

Sadly, his ball control was severely lacking and did nothing to help a Sunderland side battling to avoid relegation.

Now, however – things seem to have changed.

For one, his TOTW card has 86 for shooting – reflective of his pretty decent conversion rate over in the States.

He currently has 38 goals in 75 games for Toronto, which – for him – is pretty incredible.

Can you hear that? It’s the sound of the ball hitting the net

He’s pretty nippy too, with the 28-year-old scoring a 77 pace rating.

A massive 85 for dribbling gives the American an attacking edge he sorely missed when in England.

Who knows, maybe he’s worth snapping up in your Ultimate Team?
