Atletico Madrid’s young star Joao Felix has revealed his own FIFA 20 Ultimate Team starting lineup – showing off his star-studded squad live on YouTube.
After making waves for Benfica during the 2018/19 season, Joao Felix was the talk of the footballing world – linked with a wide range of clubs in the transfer market. The 20-year-old eventually joined Atletico Madrid for an eye-watering €126 million – the fourth-most expensive fee ever for a player.
Since joining Atleti, the Portuguese has had a fine start to life in the Spanish capital, helping Diego Simeone’s side to sixth place in La Liga and a quarter-finals spot in the Champions League – defeating holders Liverpool in the process. Like many other footballing stars, Felix is a fan of FIFA, occasionally live streaming EA SPORTS’ game on YouTube.
During his March 27 broadcast, the Atletico Madrid star took some time to show off his incredibly high-powered starting lineup that includes legends like Pele, Maradona, Ronaldo, and Maldini.
Like plenty of other professional stars, the youngster even has his own 99-rated custom card that proves you’re actually playing against Joao Felix – should you have the chance to drop in to a game against him.
Joao Felix’s FIFA 20 Ultimate Team Starting XI
- GK: Jan Oblak - 92
- LB: Alex Telles - 89
- RB: Nelson Semedo - 87
- CB: Paolo Maldini - 94

Unlike some of his other fellow professionals, there aren’t many spots for current day players in Felix’s squad. He has, though, made room for teammate Jan Oblak and fellow Portuguese international Nelson Semedo.
Some fans might also point to the fact that he could upgrade his team by dropping Militao and Alex Telles, for other icons, but they are still pretty useful cards in their own right.
