FIFA 23 - INSANE Ronaldo card inbound in Ultimate Team



Always one to defy his critics, Cristiano Ronaldo is at it once again!

Putting in a dominant display for new club Al-Nassr he has guaranteed himself an insane upgrade in FIFA 23 Ultimate Team.

Check out why below...

Settling In

Cristiano Ronaldo's move to Al-Nassr had many people thinking he was looking for a quiet retirement, but that just isn't in his nature.

He didn't really hit the ground running after his move to Saudi Arabia, taking three matches to score his first goal in a 2-2 draw with Al-Fateh.

CR7 also had to deal with his side losing 3-1 to Al-Ittihad in the Saudi Super Cup Semi-Final, and (although it won't help him deal with the defeat) at least it was to the side that went on to win it.

However, he hasn't been kept quiet for long, with a truly stunning performance coming in his fourth match...

Goal Machine

How do you celebrate your fourth professional match with a club? By scoring four goals of course!

Cristiano Ronaldo made sure he will stay in the headlines even after leaving the European leagues, by netting a flurry of goals against Al-Wehda.

He opened the scoring in the 21st minute with a tidy left-footed finish across the 'keeper into the bottom right, after playing a neat one-two and making a perfectly timed run.

It also happened to be his 500th career league goal!

That became a brace in the 40th minute with another low shot placed between the goalie's legs.

Not one to turn down a hat trick opportunity, he claimed the 61st of his career from the spot, striking the ball with enough power and accuracy that the 'keeper didn't stand a chance, despite going the right way.

His fourth and final goal of the game was perhaps his easiest, initially missing a one-on-one but then reacting quickly to tap in the rebound.

The first, second and fourth goals were all accompanied by his classic "siuuu" celebration, something the crowd absolutely loved!

TOTW Guarantee

Cristiano Ronaldo has had a quiet time of it in terms of special cards in FIFA 23 Ultimate Team, with the 91 OVR Rulebreakers and 87 OVR Flashback SBC the only two in his collection this title.

However, that will surely change on Wednesday, 15 February, when Team of the Week 16 will have him headlining.

A refreshed upgrade system could also see EA hand him a double in-form upgrade, giving him a whopping 92 OVR card!

Of course, it's all speculation at the moment, but the fans would love to see this old GOAT treated well.
