    Cristiano Ronaldo
     Not much needs to be said about FIFA 18’s  cover star, as Ronaldo is  one of the greatest footballers in the history  of the sport. The  Portuguese winger has won nearly every individual and  team achievement  out there, including four Ballon d’Or trophies, four UEFA  Champions  League medals, and a UEFA European Championship medal. He holds   numerous records for both club and country, and he’s likely to break  even more before his career is finished.



    Antoine Griezmann
    A breakout star in recent seasons for  Atlético Madrid and the French  national team, Griezmann is an extremely  talented and  technically-gifted forward. From flying down the wing to send  in  crosses to teammates to blasting shots into the top corner from outside   the box, Griezmann never fails to entertain on the pitch.



    Dele Alli
    A two-time PFA Young Player of the  Year awardee, Alli has been  sensational for Tottenham Hotspur and the  England national team in  recent years. Known for his technically  impressive goals and abundance  of confidence on the pitch, Alli is the  perfect representative for the  next generation of English football.



    Thomas Müller
     A World Cup winner with Germany and  longtime staple with his club  Bayern Munich, Müller has reached the upper  echelons of the sport—and  he’s not even 30. Müller is a brilliant  playmaker, known for his  intelligence, versatility, and composure under pressure.



    James Harden
    The famously-bearded Houston  Rockets shooting guard is a five-time  consecutive NBA All-Star and Olympic  gold medalist. A first-round pick  by the Oklahoma Thunder in 2009 after a  successful college career at  Arizona State, Harden led the Thunder to the  2012 NBA Finals before  being traded to the Rockets.



    Rio Ferdinand
     An accomplished former centre-back for  Manchester United and England,  Ferdinand is now a well-respected, if occasionally combative, football   pundit and commentator. Known as a strong leader and defensive stalwart  during his  career, Ferdinand led Manchester United to a staggering 14  trophies during  his tenure at the club, including six Premier League  titles and one UEFA  Champions League title. 



    Gyasi Zardes
    An accomplished Homegrown Player for the LA Galaxy,  Zardes has gone  from a breakout young MLS star to an accomplished US  national team  veteran in just a few years. Zardes is known for his  incredible pace,  which he often uses to beat defenders and latch onto  through balls or  burst down the wing to send a cross in for his teammates  or cut inside  and take a shot on goal.
