Wycombe Wanderers forward and all-round powerhouse Adebayo Akinfenwa has received a very special gift from EA Sports this week.

To celebrate reaching one million followers on Instagram, ‘The Beast’ was handed the first ever 100-rated card on FIFA and my god, just look at those stats.

Akinfenwa, who has consistently been the strongest player on the game until last week, has 100 everything.

How much would this go on the market for? WE NEED IT.

Akinfenwa made a name for himself through the FIFA franchise, but it could have been so different after being told he was ‘too big’ to play football.

He instead defied those odds, using his size to make a pretty good career for himself, with spells at Swansea, Northampton and AFC Wimbledon defining his time in football.

As well as his life on the pitch, the 36-year-old has held the title of strongest player on FIFA for years.

But from last week Akinfenwa was no longer the strongest non-in-form player in FIFA 19’s Ultimate Team.

That’s right, the Wycombe Wanderers star no longer holds that accolade to his name.

Sure, he still has an impressive 97 strength, but that’s no longer enough to become the strongest player in Ultimate Team.

That honour now belongs to Sébastien Haller, who has an incredible 98 strength.

The 24-year-old Eintracht Frankfurt striker initially had a 78-rated Ultimate Team card, but EA Sports has bumped him up to an 81 rating as part of the winter upgrades.

Just check out that 98 strength. Incredible.
