Leicester City lifted their first Premier League Trophy on Saturday, a minor trend started on Twitter questioning Leicester City’s place in FIFA 17 game. This has raised some serious questions over EA Sports who previously had the 2015-16 Champions rated only 3.5 stars.
Before the season began, the betting odds that Leicester to win the title was around 5000/1, but the impossible happened. The fairy tale for the underdogs came true.
The team has shown real talent this season, which cannot and should not go unappreciated. The team played fair and the main men, Vardy, Mahrez and Ranieri need stats change in the video game simulation.
What can we expect from EA Sports?
Back in 2013/14 season Atletico Madrid won the La Liga title beating the top Real and Barca. In FIFA 14, the players had a substantial increase in their stats. Their main man, Costa, had a +6 stats increase in the game. Their 4 star was turned into a 5 star team.
We can expect such stats boost from the EA for Leicester City in FIFA 17. The signs are good for Leicester to get a substantial upgrade for FIFA 17. We’ll know soon enough, but expect updates to take them down a peg or two if Ranieri is correct and they are just a temporary flash in the pan.
