He's not the only uninvited guest

EA Sports has vowed to update all the squads in the World Cup mode, after a barrage of complaints from FIFA fans shortly after launch.

It didn’t take long for gamers to spot that most squads in the free World Cup update were out of date – and they soon voiced their frustration at the EA Sports Twitter handle.

However, speaking to Dream Team, Andrei Lazarescu – the senior producer on the World Cup Update – has vowed to put things right.
