FIFA 18: Cristiano Ronaldo set to be given new card by EA Sports

The Portuguese may have just played himself into the Team of The Week

Cristiano Ronaldo may be one of the best players in FIFA 18, but in the real world he’s been hit and miss.

The Portuguese scored just four goals in his first 14 La Liga games of the season and despite a decent tally in the Champions League some were worried his best days were behind him.

Goals last weekend: Ronaldo 3, Messi 0

Yet, like a true world class player, the 33-year-old turned things around in recent weeks, netting seven times in his last four league games including a hat trick against Real Sociedad last weekend.

The recent flood of goals brings his tally for the season to 23, more than he had at the same stage last season when he went on to be crowned the Ballon d’Or winner.

And it gets better.

According to Futhead, EA Sports are likely to reward the star with an upgraded FUT card – as part of the Team of the Week squad revealed on Wednesday.

Amazingly, despite being the cover star – Ronaldo is yet to receive an inform card – not including his Team of The Year / Team of the Group Stage versions.

In FIFA 17, the Real Madrid striker already had a handful of upgraded cards at this point – with his TOTW 28 boasting a massive 97 rating.

Maybe calls for his FIFA 19 rating to be downgraded were a tad premature?

Keep up the good form, Ronnie.
