FIFA 18: You’ve just made a massive mistake if you’ve bought one of these players

These lot aren't as good as their stats would suggest

FIFA 18 is all about Ultimate Team. And just as the name suggests, it’s about creating the very best squad of players.

However, according to Futhead, there are some stars you need to avoid at all costs.

FIFA 19 Standard and Champions Editions are available to pre-order from GAME and Amazon

We go through four players who, despite being decent in real life, are not worth the money in FIFA 18.

Gianluigi Donnarumma

Futhead refer to the young Italian as ‘ a contender for the worst player I have ever used, in any iteration of FUT.”

They go on to write: “This man couldn’t catch a cold.

“He couldn’t save a Word document. He was absolutely atrocious. The only thing he could do was pull off some decent saves from range, but that was only when the shot came close to his body.”

Avoid, avoid, avoid.


Piotr Zielinski

Five-star weak foot, four-star skills, 80+ pace and dribbling – what’s not to like? According to Futhead, a lot, actually.

They write: “His physicality was awful – he was tall and weak and off-balance, and he was dead by the 75th minute.

“His defending was only remedied by his pace, but the actual stats were awful. The phrase jack of all trades, master of none describes him perfectly.”

Sounds pretty awful.


Niklas Sule

Don’t let the 83-rating fool you, this guy is one of the least-responsive defenders on the game.

Futhead write: “If the opponent turns even slightly, he’s going down like the Titanic.

“He’s caught wrong-footed more times than I can count, he’s too slow to catch up with any of the most used strikers, and he’s god-awful on the ball – don’t even think about dribbling with him.”



Radja Nainggolan

Arguably the highest profile name on the list – but not without reason. The Belgian star is just massively average in every sense on the game.

Futhead write: “His shooting is good, but not fantastic. His passing is solid, but it won’t unlock defenses. His dribbling is fine, but he’s not going on any runs. His physicality is stunning at times, but at others, he gets bullied and is way to short to win the aerial duels.”

Best avoid these lot like the plague.
