Roberto Firmino Now Has Five-Star Skills On FIFA 20
EA Sports have finally made a long overdue change to Roberto Firmino on FIFA 20, upgrading the Brazilian to five-star skills.
Somehow, despite the flair and supreme technical ability that has been on show ever since he made the move to the Premier League in 2015, Firmino only had four-star skills when FIFA 20 was released worldwide in September.
Fans who were fuming with his 86 rating might be a little happier now after EA decided to answer everyone's prayers in their 'Winter Upgrades'.
On the latest update, Firmino, with his 87 dribbling ability, is now able to perform even silkier skill moves than before.

The no-look, nutmeg-loving forward has been joined by Chelsea new boy Hakim Ziyech, who has been handed five-star skills after tearing it up again for Ajax this season.
Five-star skillers on this year's game include household names such as Cristiano Ronaldo, Neymar, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Kylian Mbappe, Thiago Alcantara, Jadon Sancho, Philippe Coutinho, Marcus Rashford, Paul Pogba Angel Di Maria, Riyad Mahrez and Marcelo.
Firmino is more than deserving of being in that company given the tricks and puzzles he's been busting out in the last few years.
He becomes the second Liverpool player to have the five stars to his name regarding skills, with teammate Xherdan Shaqiri already having the maximum skill rating.
One player who has had five-star skills on the game since the glory days of FIFA 12 is Aiden McGeady, now on loan at Charlton Athletic from Sunderland.
The Irish international has a legendary reputation in the FIFA series, with his trademark 'McGeady Turn' prominently used by skillers.
