Anthony Joshua's Featured FIFA 19 Ultimate Team Squad Is Ridiculous

Punching people in the face may be his area of expertise but Anthony Joshua knows how to put together a spicy FIFA 19 squad.

The WBA (Super), IBF, WBO, and IBO heavyweight champion was asked to create his own Ultimate Team by EA Sports and the result was pretty crazy.

AJ has Jose Mourinho, the man who had a priceless reaction to seeing the heavyweight kick a football when he had a kickabout with United last year, as his manager and has also gone for a 4-3-3 formation.

David De Gea, the highest-rated goalkeeper on the game, is in between the sticks, with a back four of Antonio Valencia, Harry Maguire (in-form), Sergio Ramos and Marcelo playing in front of him.

In midfield, he's got the French World Cup winning pairing of N'Golo Kante and Paul Pogba providing the platform for Paulo Dybala of Juventus to strut his stuff.

He then finishes it off with a devastating front three of Marcus Rashford, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Cristiano Ronaldo, the highest-rated player on the game.

His bench is also especially interesting. Joshua has Ronaldo Nazario's 96-rated on the bench, along with 94-rated Lionel Messi, Harry Kane, Luka Modric, Jesse Lingard, Adebayo Akinfenwa and Troy Deeney - the latter two of which are probably better equipped to taking him on in the squared circle.

AJ loves a bit of FIFA to chill out and revealed last month that Juventus are his go-to team at the moment.

Reckon you could beat the champ at FIFA?
