The Beast may be looking over his shoulder come EA Sports' next football title

Adebayo Akinfenwa may not be the strongest player in FIFA 19. Yes, you read that correctly.

The ‘Beast’ who currently plays for Wycombe Wanderers has a massive 98 score for strength in last year’s game.

However, there’s another player who trumps that feat – Seattle Sounders’ defender Roman Torres.

EA sneakily made the centre-back the strongest player on the game with a Hero Card after Panama qualified for this year’s World Cup.

He’s the only player to have 99 strength – meaning he’s the only person in the game who could out-muscle Akinfenwa.

This sets up a colossal battle between the pair come FIFA 19 – with both players likely keen on keeping the prestigious ‘strongest player’ feat.

It wasn’t long before the Beast found out about the power shift, and in an interview with Soccer AM, gave Torres a message.

“Look, right now, me, you, anywhere, anytime, any place,” he said jokingly to the camera. “Roman Torres, we’re going to have a conversation.”

Akinfenwa also had a message for the game’s developers. ‘EA, you as well, don’t try and take this away from me.’

Better do what he says, EA.

Speaking of FIFA 19 – who’s going to be the cover star this year? After all, Cristiano Ronaldo has been pretty average this season?
