Real Madrid’s young Brazilian wing wizard Vinicius Jr has had his FIFA 20 Ultimate Team starting lineup revealed and he has a pretty modest squad compared to other professional players.
Since 2017, Vinicius Jr has been a world-renowned name in football, swapping Flamengo for Real Madrid for a whopping €45 million. Since that point, the 19-year-old has been cast into stardom – becoming a regular for Los Blancos, making 59 appearances and bagging seven goals.
He’s even become a key figure with FIFA 20 too. Starting up the game places you in a Volta game between Vinicius and a few of his teammates, while the FIFA Ultimate Team menus have plenty of his images. Though, his actual Ultimate Team squad isn’t as high-powered as you think it might be.
The Brazilian’s team was revealed by Reddit user Timmo1984, who noted that they’d come up against him in a recent match. Obviously, to prove it was the real deal, Vinicius Jr’s 99-rated custom pro player card takes center stage – overshadowing some of his virtual teammates.
Though, like many other professional players, he does have plenty of Icons with Ronaldo, Ronaldinho, and Zinedine Zidane – his current manager at Real Madrid – all getting in on the action.
Vinicius Jr’s FIFA 20 Ultimate Team Starting XI
- GK: Thibaut Courtois - 88
- LB: Ferland Mendy - 80
- RB: Nelson Semedo - 84
- CB: Raphael Varane - 85
- CB: Lucas Hernandez - 84
- CM: Zinedine Zidane - 94
- CAM: N’Golo Kante - 89
- CM: Ronaldinho - 91
- RM: Hirving Lozano - 87
- LM: Vinicius Jr - 99
- ST: Ronaldo - 94
Having such a modest team with so many below 90-rated cards obviously opens up the possibility for plenty of upgrades. For a start, both Varane and Courtois could be changed to their 89 and 93-rated selves for an immediate boost.
Lozano is an unusual pick on the right-hand side, especially when La Liga already has Lionel Messi. However, it is Vinicius’ team so we’ll leave him to it.
