Diogo Jota’s incredible 20 million coin FIFA 22 team revealed
Liverpool’s Portuguese star Diogo Jota is well-known for his ability on the real pitch, but he’s also a big fan of the virtual game. One FIFA 22 player has revealed the striker’s FUT team after matching against him in Division Rivals.
But it’s easy to forget that many professional footballers also jump into FIFA 22 when they’re not training.
One excited fan happened to match against Liverpool’s Diogo Jota, whose team, even in October, would strike fear into the most hardened of FIFA veterans.
Diogo Jota is well-known for his FIFA prowess, as he notoriously went 30-0 in FUT Champions on FIFA 21, so it’s no surprise that one fan ran into him in the Elite Division of Division Rivals
The screenshots shared by a Reddit user only show us the starting XI, but it’s clear that his team is worth well over 20 million coins.
We can confirm that the squad does belong to Diogo Jota, as his team name and online ID match-up from FIFA 21.
Check out his full lineup, as well as the value of each card, below:
- GK – Lev Yashin (ICON) – 644,000
- LB – Ferland Mendy – 119,000
- CB – Raphael Varane – 295,000
- CB – Marquinhos (RTTK) – 670,000
- RB – Achraf Hakimi (OTW) – 378,000
- CM – Patrick Viera (ICON)
- LM – Kylian Mbappe – 1.74 million
- CAM – Ronaldo (ICON) – 12.1 million
- CAM – Ruud Gullit (ICON) – 8.4 million
- ST – Cristiano Ronaldo – 1.23 million
In the past, professional players would be handed a 99-rated version of themselves to use in-game, partly as a bit of fun, but mainly so that fans could recognize when they were playing one of their heroes.
EA has done away with this feature in FIFA 22, meaning there is no room for Jota in his own FUT squad.
That’s not to say his team was easily beatable – it still contained some of the rarest and most expensive players FUT coins can buy.
Despite Jota’s team being packed with superstars past and present, he ultimately fell to a 1-0 defeat once the game kicked off.
That being said, we still don’t want to run into him on Rivals or FUT Champs any time soon.
