RealSport101 Advent Calendar - Day 15

We're continuing this Ultimate Team throwback series with quite possibly the sweatiest player to ever grace the most popular FIFA game mode.

He's Colombian, he's rapid and he will finish absolutely everything.

Victor Ibarbo - FIFA 15

Victor Ibarbo goes down as one of Ultimate Team's classic overpowered players.

We have picked out the former Serie A star's FIFA 15 right-winger card, but Ibarbo had a number of incredibly OP items down the years.

This card had everything you could want from a winger in FUT - blistering speed, raw power, close control and impeccable finishing despite his 74 shooting rating.

LIGHTNING - Ibarbo felt absolutely rapid in-game

Victor Ibarbo was just one component of the sweatiest attacking trio in Ultimate Team history, comprised of himself, Seydou Doumbia and Gervinho.

The three Roma forwards gave each other perfect Chemistry in the right formation and could tear apart the most accomplished defences in the game.

The best (or worst) thing about the famous front three is that you could purchase them for a combined figure of just a few thousand coins in FUT 15.

Where is Ibarbo now?

Victor Ibarbo, now 32 years of age, currently plays for the Japanese J2 League football club, V-Varen Nagasaki.

So, how did the Colombian end up playing in Japan? Since leaving AS Roma in the summer of 2016, the pacey forward has played for several different clubs.

UNSTOPPABLE - You knew you were in for a tough game when these three showed up

Ibarbo joined the Italian side Cagliari Calcio before going on a number of different loan spells in Greece with Panathinaikos and Japan for J1 League team Sagan Tosu.

The ageing winger then made the step down to the Japanese second division in a loan move that was then made permanent for around €800,000 back in 2020.
