“The FIFA 19 cover star’s career has been packed with awards and trophies, but after his high-profile move to Juventus this season, it’s clear that Ronaldo isn’t done racking up silverware,” said EA.

“The Portuguese forward continues to play like the world’s best, and his ratings are evidence of an astoundingly talented player. Ronaldo beats defenders left and right when attacking, burning them with his 90 Pace and bamboozling them with a 90 Dribbling rating.

“But the most complete forward in football stands above the rest with a 93 Shooting rating, evidence of a natural finisher who puts away more chances than he misses on a regular basis.”
