NEW FIFA 18 WORLD CUP NATIONAL TEAMS
There’s a reason so many fans are excited to see Nigeria back in a FIFA game. Not only are their kits amazing, but their team will be very fun to use.
The team boasts an exciting range of strikers with Kelechi Iheanacho, the rapid Ahmed Musa and Odion Ighalo who isn’t currently on the game as he now plays in the Chinese League.
On top of that, they also have excellent wingers with Victor Moses, Alex Iwobi and most notably, Henry Onyekuru. Onyekuru is incredibly quick with 90 acceleration and 88 sprint speed and also boasts four-stars in both skills and weak-foot.
And if that wasn’t convincing enough, on Ultimate Team they will have the legendary Jay-Jay Okocha who’s Prime Icon card is 90-rated.
Mane is almost convincing enough in his own right for you to play as Senegal on FIFA 18

Obviously Liverpool star Sadio Mane is the standout player in the squad with an overall of 84 and stats of 94 acceleration, 92 sprint speed, 86 dribbling and 84 finishing. He isn’t the only effective winger either with Monaco’s Keita Balde Diao and former AC Milan player M’Baye Niang – both of whom have four-star skills.
The squad also has a solid spine in the midfielder with Everton’s star midfielder Idrissa Gueye and Napoli centre-back Kalidou Koulibaly.

Morocco are not a team you want to ignore, especially on FIFA where they could prove to be one of the most entertaining teams.
The squad is packed with skillful players, which could lead to dizzying runs and some fantastic goals if that fits your playstyle. Southampton winger Sofiane Boufal has five-star skills and has the pace (82) and dribbling (85) to make the most of them.
On top of that, you have Younes Belhanda, Amine Harit,Hakim Zayech and Nordin Amrabat as just some of their players who have four-star skills. Plus, you won’t be totally exposed in defence with the unit that is Juventus centre-back Medhi Benatia.
