The brawls and high tides of video games synchronizes with the love for football. Over the years, football fans have grown their addiction for both football and video games. While Konami built their niche among PC owners in creating the Pro Evolution Soccer (PES), EA Sports were conjuring the best graphics and pictures for Playstation and XBox series fanatics as they perfected FIFA on their respective platforms.
There were no surprises for numbers one and two spots on the game as Barcelona’s Lionel Messi leads the pack, with Juventus’s Cristiano Ronaldo sealing the second place.
