Kylian Mbappe was already next level on FIFA 19 but his new Team of the Year card is a different animal.
After tearing it up for PSG and playing a starring role in France's World Cup win, Mbappe has deservedly made EA Sports' Ultimate XI for 2018 and his stats are just utterly ridiculous.

The 20-year old's overall rating has climbed ten marks from 87 to 97, while he's got five star skill moves, 90 physical, 92 passing, 96 shooting and 97 dribbling.
But then comes the almighty statistic. Having already been the fastest player on the game, Mbappe's spicy upgrade comes with an insane 99 pace rating - which will be unbelievable to play with and an absolute nightmare to come up against on Ultimate Team.
Inaugural Kopa Trophy winner Mbappe is in the front three alongside five-time Ballon d'Or winners Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, who are both 99-rated and also look like they might cause many controllers to be broken.

At the start of FIFA 17,when Mbappe was an unknown quantity, he was a silver 71-rated left winger with bags of potential.
On Career Mode, he was a must-have for anyone wanting a high-quality youngster to lead their attack for years to come thanks to his incredible potential rating of 87.
In his first season in Paris, following his sublime 24-goal season for Monaco last season, Mbappe then moved up to 83 on FIFA 18.
87 was his basic rating on FIFA 19 but thanks to a public vote in the FIFA community, Mbappe now has an absolute monster of a card that will do some serious damage.
The chances of packing him are quite slim but if you do manage to get him then you have well and truly struck gold.
