Last night EA Sports revealed its picks for the best players of Matchday 2 at the FIFA World Cup.
Many of the big teams picked up after slow starts, and many of the big players, with a few exceptions, put in stellar performances.
The top players have been given upgrades in FIFA 18 Ultimate Team, and for some, it’s their best upgrade of the season so far.
The Festival of FUTball Matchday 2 squad is highlighted by Eden Hazard and James Rodriguez
Remember, these upgrades are for the standard Ultimate Team, not the brand new mode in the free World Cup update. That mode has been receiving separate updates on a daily basis based on the day’s matches.

Highlights from the new Festival of FUTball squad include Eden Hazard, James Rodriguez, Luka Modric, Ivan Rakitic, and Olivier Giroud.
Pretty much anyone in the squad will be an upgrade to a casual player’s team, with the ratings ranging from 97 to 88, which is still pretty massive.
Eden Hazard is the highest rated, at 97 overall. Belgium have been on fine attacking form so far at the World Cup, and he now has 96 pace, 95 shooting, 96 passing, 98 dribbling, and 85 physical. He’ll be a beast at the left forward position.
He’s not quite as pacey, but James Rodriguez is almost as good as Hazard, rated at 95 overall. The left midfielder has 87 pace, 96 dribbling, 96 shooting, 98 passing, and 86 physical.
If you’re looking for a goalkeeper, Keylor Navas is the man for you, rated at 90 overall.
Two English players made the squad after their thrashing of Panama. John Stones is in thanks to his brace, and Jesse Lingard makes the cut too after his beautiful goal from outside the box.
Expect to find a new matchday 3 squad this weekend.
