Tottenham Hotspur ace Dele Alli is looking increasingly likely to take a leading role in FIFA 18, as part of the games interesting story/career mode with fictional footballer Alex Hunter.
Last year’s The Journey mode featured a whole host of cameo’s from famous footballers including the likes of Angel Di Maria, Marco Reus and notably Spurs striker Harry Kane.
And from the looks of some recent social media posts across Twitter and Facebook, Dele Alli could also be set for a big role in the game.
On Twitter Dele posted a picture of himself in a cab which read: “Great day shooting with @EASPORTSFIFA”.
Earlier that day he also posted to facebook: “Meeting @EASPORTSFIFA to discuss my #FIFA18 ratings, what do you guys think?”
So it seems fairly nailed on that Alli has some sort of role in the game, but dreamteamfc.com have also spotted another interesting link between Alli and Alex Hunter.
“Last month, Alli was seen pictured in a luxury pad in Los Angeles – only it looked remarkably similar to a location Hunter is pictured in one of the FIFA 18 screenshots,” claimed dreamteamfc.com
“We know that Hunter will be spending his pre-season out in the States – and that he plays for Chelsea, at least at the start of the game, so it’s not yet clear how Alli would feature.”
The news follows on from another week of FIFA 17 FUTTIES action, with two more player cards to mark a fond farewell to two players set to retire this year.
The announcement includes a 95 rated RB Phillip Lahm and a 94 rated CDM Xabi Alonso, both of whom can be obtained in FIFA 17 by completing a special SBC (Squad building challenge).
In addition, the game also released more nomination SBC’s for players favourite RM/RW and as previously mentioned, the only way to vote for your favourite is by completing each players SBC’s in the game.
Lastly, EA Sports also announced four new marquee transfer cards which are available in SBC’s and packs, including United’s Romelu Lukaku and Everton’s new star forward Wayne Rooney.
The FUTTIES event lasts six weeks from Friday, July 7 through to Friday, August 18 and will act as the game’s final celebration before EA Sports turn their attention to FIFA 18 released on September 26.
