RealSport101 Advent Calendar

The Christmas countdown is nearly over with Day 24 of our FIFA Advent Calendar, and how better to celebrate than with a true Ultimate Team legend.

From the early days of Ultimate Team, this deadly striker was high on everyone's wishlist as he tormented defenders for years.

Possessing blistering pace and deadly finishing, there are few names that can strike fear into players in the same way.

While his career in real-life pales in comparison to his FIFA stardom, Seydou Doumbia will always be considered a legend of the game among FIFA fans.

The Ivory Coast forward's lightning speed and finishing made him a highly-sought after commodity in the game, and at times he was unstoppable.

Seydou Doumbia - FIFA 14

FIFA 14 was the peak for Seydou Doumbia, although many fans will say FIFA 15 was the best year after his transfer to Roma.

Doumbia was something of a journeyman in his career, playing for 11 clubs in total, including spells in England, Italy, Spain, and Portugal.

Doumbia also bagged nine international goals for Ivory Coast, although he never managed to score for Newcastle in the Premier League.

GOAT STATUS - The man, the myth, the legend

Back to the virtual world though, and that is where Doumbia thrived!

In FIFA 14, Doumbia boasted an 82 OVR, including 93 Sprint Speed and 86 Finishing!

Add that to incredible 91 Stamina and four-star Skill Moves and Weak Foot, and it is easy to see why he was one of the most feared players in the game.

Terrifying Trio

If Doumbia was not enough, Roma went full meta-mode in 2014/15 as they added him to a squad that possessed fellow FUT legends Gervinho and Victor Ibarbo.

All three men were equipped with blistering pace, creating the most feared front three in FIFA 15 Ultimate Team.

Doumbia and Gervinho created the perfect chemistry link too as they shared both club and country.

We may never see an OP attack in the same way ever again, and Seydou Doumbia was the spearhead of the terrifying trio.
