The waiting is nearly over. The eagerly-anticipated arrival of FIFA 18 is now just days away.
This year’s edition of the game promises to further blur the lines between reality and virtual reality with a number of exciting enhancements to the best-selling franchise.
And, for the first time, Cristiano Ronaldo will be FIFA’s game’s cover star after his contract with EA Sports’ rivals, Konami, came to an end.
The Portuguese superstar will be front and centre on every copy of the game sold in the UK.
With that in mind we’ve put together a quiz to test your knowledge of previous cover stars.
Naturally, there are some names which will roll off the tongue…and some which won’t.
Test your knowledge and challenge your friends to see who really knows FIFA best!
