Federation Internationale de Football Association 18 World Cup mode set to be released today

Federation Internationale de Football Association 18 World Cup mode set to be released today

Russian Federation will host the 2018 tournament beginning in a matter of weeks, with Qatar scheduled to host the 2022 World Cup.

Africa will be represented by 54 member nations during the FIFA Assembly on June 13th to decide who wins the hosting rights for the 2026 FIFA World Cup. More critically, Saudi Arabia has not won a single game at the World Cup after beating Belgium in 1994.

Al-Shalawi's retirement comes after a 16-year career during which he participated in many worldwide events and achieved the title of the best Asian Assistant Referee in 2015.

This is the second time that developer EA Sports have added such a mode, with the previous time being in 2014 when the last FIFA World Cup was held.

"The two best players in the world suffered narrow defeats with their respective countries as Cristiano Ronaldo's Portugal fell 2-1 to Uruguay and Lionel Messi's Argentina were blanked 1-0 by France".

FIFA 18 World Cup update or DLC will include stadiums, kits and official team badges that will be present in official FIFA World Cup.

Gamers will collect player cards through packs, building a team of worldwide super-stars that will take them to World Cup victory.

"We have friendly matches against Peru and Germany and our goal is to reach the World Cup highly prepared".

Double Pack Incentive: For every Standard or Premium pack you purchase in FIFA World Cup Ultimate Team, you will receive equivalent pack value in FUT 18.

The patch will be ready to download when you log in today at around 6pm BST when you launch the game.

While FIFA has always allowed you to play custom tournaments, they've never quite captured the feel that comes with them and this World Cup update goes out of its way to ensure that's not the case here.

Footballers will play better in-game when matched with teammates from the same nation, forcing players to get creative to make sure their team is as strong as possible. So if EA's predictions do end up being accurate then it will be something of a surprise.
