EA Sports Have Aptly Added 'Early Crosser' To Trent Alexander- Arnold's FIFA Card

Barcelona fans won't be happy...

Trent Alexander Arnold's FIFA 20 Team of the Year card now comes with the 'Early Crosser' trait that he so richly deserves.

The England right-back was the only logical choice for FIFA 20's Team of the Year and made the XI alongside teammates Andy Robertson, Alisson Becker, Virgil van Dijk and Sadio Mane for his contributions in 2019.

His 95-rated card, which is going for 970,000 on PlayStation and 865,000 on Xbox, has 85 shooting and 87 physical, 92 pace, 92 dribbling and 92 defending and is completed with an outrageous 97 passing.

But something was missing and now EA have rectified it by making him an 'Early Crosser', much to the annoyance of Barcelona fans.

Of course we're referring to the genius he served in the Champions League semi-final second leg against the Blaugrana last season.

His quickly taken corner caught the Barca backline sleeping and allowed Divock Origi to score Liverpool's fourth and complete yet another memorable European comeback at Anfield - sending them on their way to a sixth European Cup triumph in Madrid.

It was only right that EA Sports added that extra bit of realism to Alexander Arnold's gem of a card.

Alexander-Arnold himself is an avid FIFA player and has assembled quite the Ultimate Team on the game, giving it a major upgrade in recent months.

There's a total of seven icons in his starting XI, including Edwin van der Sar, Paolo Maldini, Johan Cruyff and 94-rated Ronaldo Nazario, along with Kylian Mbappe's Champions League card and Virgil van Dijk's in-form card.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is the only non in-form in his side and his card is 88-rated, which is pretty incredible.

And of course, to top it all off, Alexander-Arnold has his insane 99-rated 'Pro Players' card in his usual right-back position.
