However, for the first time in the 26-year history of FIFA’s video game franchise, EA Sports has awarded a player with a 100-rated card. And that special FUT card has been rewarded to a League Two player – Adebayo Akinfenwa aka The Beast.

The cult icon has been given the personal card in real life as gift to celebrate the fact that he has reached 1 million followers on Instagram.

Akinfenwa is well-known as one of the strongest football players in the world thanks to the video game and was previously the strongest player on the FIFA games too, although he was recently overtaken following the Winter Upgrades.
