You step into the boots of Alex Hunter’s father, Jim.

He’s playing for Newcastle against Coventry City FC, in what was a historic game in terms of ‘The Journey’ storyline.

Now for the bad news.

You will only get to play one game of 1960’s football in the whole of FIFA 19 – so better make the most of it.

Once completing the 1960’s segment of The Journey and scoring Hunter’s 100th career goal you will be awarded a ‘Jim Hunter Legend card’.

Here it is for your viewing pleasure:

Although it doesn’t have the best stats, it’s still quite a cool feature.
