FIFA 18’s World Cup update will be launching on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC on Tuesday May 29.
The massive update will bring loads of new content including a brand new version of Ultimate Team with all new cards based on the World Cup.
There are a lot of exciting cards and one of the best ways to try them is on Ultimate Team’s Draft mode. We had a go at building a European team and ended up with two Icons.

We built an incredible European squad on FIFA 18 UItimate Team’s World Cup Draft mode
The squad had full 100 chemistry and a high team rating of 86. It helped that our captain was Cristiano Ronaldo, the highest-rated non-Icon on the mode.
His strike partner was just exciting, 93-rated French Icon Thierry Henry. The impressive strike force lead to an overall forwards rating of 94.
That made up our mind that we’d try to create a European team as chemistry in the World Cup mode acts differently. Instead of clubs, players are linked by their confederation.
Our team had two Icons and Cristiano Ronaldo in the team, plus Messi and Salah on the bench
Still, we opted for Portuguese winger Quaresma to have a super link with Ronaldo, giving our chemistry a huge boost and in turn, flexibility in case we did want to create a hybrid.
That link became even stronger with fellow countryman Rui Costa moving into the squad, giving us our second legend.
The defense was also pretty solid with Benjamin Mendy, Laurent Koscielny, Mats Hummels and Joshua Kimmich plus Alphonse Areola in goal.
And then to complete the squad, we had some fantastic options from the bench, namely Lionel Messi and Mohammed Salah. It’s not everyday you see either of those two used as super subs.
