According to the official page of FIFA 19, the Champions League "is the protagonist in FIFA 19 for PlayStation4, Xbox One, PC and Nintendo Switch thanks to the presentation of official matches, to the different experiences of tournaments, which include the Europa League and the Supercopa."
These statements not only expose the true end of the 'brotherhood' of more than ten years between UEFA and Konami – the company responsible for creating and distributing the Pro Evolution Soccer (PES) -, but also the platforms on which you could enjoy the FIFA 19 gameplay: PS4, XBOX One, PC and Nintendo Switch.

The ten best of FIFA 19
With all this, the video game has not only generated commotion by the way it can be played, but by the small details behind the 'boom' it generates. Among the most famous curiosities is the Top 10 of the best players within FIFA 19, as well as the worst.
Without thinking twice, EA Sports assigned the number one to its representative to the world: Cristiano Ronaldo. The Portuguese was positioned in the first place with an average score of 94/100, the same as the second, Lionel Messi, only that CR7 obtained better numbers in 4 of the 6 qualification items (Speed, Regates, Shooting, Passes, Defense and Physical). The podium is finished by Neymar Jr., with an average of 92 points.
The other seven players that are part of the Top 10 are: Luka Modric (Real Madrid), Kevin de Bruyne (Manchester City), Eden Hazard (Chelsea), Sergio Ramos (Real Madrid), Luis Suarez (FC Barcelona), David de Gea (Manchester United) and Toni Kroos (Real Madrid), in that order.
On the other hand, at the end of the list is the Irishman Pierce Phillips. According to Depor.com, the player of Cork City FC, of Ireland, occupied the last position of the ranking with only 47 points in his average. Now, the sports media says that even if it is the 'worst' player of FIFA 19, this does not make it worthy of the same title in real life. "FIFA 19 only has the average of the players that appear in the licenses obtained by the game. So do not confuse things! ", Specific Depor.
The well-known virtual soccer simulator released its demo on September 13, but the official premiere was released on September 28. This will be the twenty-sixth edition of this video game since EA Sports premiered the saga in 1993.
