We know that EA Sports will be adding new celebrations to FIFA 19 – so they’d be mad for not including some Fortnite ones.

Here are the ’emotes’ we think should feature in this year’s FIFA.

Pick-axe celebration 


Karlsruhe FC’s Daniel Gordon netted then ran over to the corner and began crawling, just like a knocked out player on Fortnite.

To add to the spectacle, his teammates began pick-axing him. Genius.

Taking the L


This is one of the funniest of all the emotes on Fortnite – and has quickly become Antoine Griezmann’s go-to, post-goal move.

Come on, EA – make it happen.



This one looks as though it’s going to be added as a Pro-Clubs celebration – which will be amazing.

It’s so simple, but somehow you just can’t take your eyes off it.

We can’t wait to see what it’ll look like in the game.

The healing celebration 


Demonstrated perfectly by the Bayern Munich youth team – who clearly all play Fortnite.

When you’re injured in the game, you take a knee and bandage yourself up. Simple but incredibly effective.



The Bayern youth also performed the Jubilation – which sees you raise your hands ‘in der air’ and tap you feet up and down rapidly.

It’s one of the most popular celebrations on the game, so expect to see more players doing it.
