Dimitar Berbatov Is In FIFA 20 And You Probably Didn't Even Notice
Dimitar Berbatov isn't one of the many lcons on FIFA 20 but the well-travelled striker is in fact in the game - though you'll have to be pretty eagle-eyed to spot him.
As was the case back in FIFA 18, as you pan on the cameramen who are down on the pitch getting those all important close ups, you can see a glimpse of a picture of the Bulgarian striker from 2010.
Bizarrely, it shows Berbatov scoring for Manchester United against Liverpool at Old Trafford in a 3-2 win. He struck a hat-trick in the fixture, including a stunning overhead kick.
This particular image is from when he rose highest in the box to head home the winning goal in the 84th minute.
It's rather strange that this particular picture of Berbatov is used within the game. Perhaps one of the game developers is a big fan of the former Spurs, Fulham and Monaco striker - after all it's been a recurring feature in a few FIFA games now.
There have been a whole host of easter eggs in FIFA over the years, but one of the best is a former made-up player now being a referee in the game.
Back in FIFA 08 and FIFA 09, EA Sports did not have the licenses for the Netherlands national team and so they had to make up some players, one of which was Hans de Noteboom, who many believe was based off Ruud van Nistelrooy.
The 31-year old striker was 89 rated, better than David Villa, David Trezeguet, Carlos Tevez, Didier Drogba, Francesco Totti, Miroslav Klose, Adriano, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Luca Toni among others.
He also had potential of 90 and had unbelievable statistics such as 95 heading, 92 shot power, 92 finishing, and 89 ball control.
When the licensing issues were ironed out, Hans de Noteboom was rendered obsolete but his FIFA legacy continued after EA decided to make him a match official from FIFA 11 onwards.
