FIFA 19: There’s one massive detail missing when you win the Champions League

Even PES developers Konami did this

FIFA 19’s big news this year was the return of the Champions League.

And it wasn’t long before the first gameplay clips of the new FIFA 19 mode made it online.


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


But look closely and it appears EA Sports has missed one vital detail.

Let’s take a closer look.

At the start of the match you’ll be treated to the full Champions League experience, with both team names appearing in a blue box sporting all the necessary logos.

Next up, you’ll get a shot of the trophy as the players walk out on to the pitch.

Finally, before kick off, you’ll see a load of people waving the huge Champions League ‘ball’ in the middle of the pitch – all perfectly animated.

As the game kicks off, you’ll see the CL style and colour scheme is echoed in the team names at the bottom of the screen.

Elsewhere, the hoarding sports the CL badge.

If you do go ahead and win the CL – you’ll be treated to a selection of cut scenes showing the players lifting the trophy.

Here’s a couple of them:

Did you spot what was missing?

In PES 2018, you were treated to a magnificent shot of someone engraving the winner’s team name into the cup – something that appears to missing from FIFA 19.

In fact, the above celebrations are almost a carbon copy of what happened in last year’s game – with similar animation and even the same fireworks.

EA Sports needs to add this to FIFA 19

Cause for concern? We’ll have to wait until the game is launched to find out but signs are not looking good.
