Meet Karim El Ahmadi: The 'Unstoppable' 99-Rated Player On FIFA World Cup Mode

We're not sure how on earth it's happened, but somehow Morocco midfielder Karim El Ahmadi has a secret 99-rated card on the FIFA 18 World Cup mode.

The former Aston Villa man, now with Feyenoord in the Eredivisie, is actually an 80-rated CDM in the add-on, with his highest statistic being his 77 dribbling.

But incredibly, as brought to our attention by FIFA YouTuber MattHDGamer, there have been some hidden cards visible on the PC version of the World Cup mode - with El Ahmadi being one of them.

What looks like a crazy glitch has resulted in Ahmadi getting a monstrous card that has 99 in just about all the key departments - 99 pace, 99 dribbling, 99 shooting, 99 defending, 99 passing and 99 physical.

Weirdly, not every single individual attribute is at its maximum; his finishing is 86, his free-kick accuracy is 66, curve is 90, agility, balance is 92, dribbling is 93, heading accuracy is 81 and marking is 89. But still, it's an unstoppable and near perfect card.

It's easily the sweatiest FIFA card ever and you may well have him in your ranks. So you best get checking your squads to see if he pops up.

Cristiano Ronaldo, the 95-rated FIFA cover star, would be the highest-ranked player on the game if this bizarre El Ahmadi bug wasn't a thing.

Several players such as Antoine Griezmann, Michy Batshuayi, Adebayo Akinfenwa and David Meyler have been given their own 99-rated pro player cards but only the individual can play with it on Ultimate Team.

Whereas with this El Ahmadi card, it looks as though it's applicable to a good chunk of the FIFA audience who are fortunate enough to stumble across it.

Is this the craziest FIFA glitch you've come across?
