EA Sports have announced their FIFA 19 Team of the Year.

The much-anticipated release has sparked some controversy, with Kevin De Bruyne's inclusion probably the most divisive selection.

De Bruyne has missed four months of action in 2018, but was instrumental in Manchester City's surge to the Premier League title and Belgium's third-place finish at the World Cup.

N'Golo Kante, Virgil van Dijk and David De Gea were the other players from England's top-flight to make the cut, with Eden Hazard, Paul Pogba and Mohamed Salah just missing out in the vote.

Real Madrid quartet Sergio Ramos, Rapahel Varane, Marcelo and Luka Modric complete the midfield and defence.

But it's up top where all the excitement is, with EA releasing Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and Kylian Mbappe's cards to the public already.

Messi and Ronaldo have both hit the maximum rating of 99, while 20-year-old Mbappe comes in at a muscular 97.

And the Frenchman forward posted a lovely tweet commemorating his inclusion next to the two greatest players in the world.

MBAPPE'S TWEET

The young Mbappe is certainly deserving of his place alongside the two players often labelled the 'GOAT'.

And he can also lay claim to having one of the greatest ever cards in the history of the FIFA franchise.

His 99 pace, 96 shooting and 97 dribbling make him the most fearsome wide player on the entire game - even more than George Best and Ronaldinho's icon cards.

Mbappe's FIFA 19 ToTY card

Paris Saint-Germain's French superstar has shown no signs of slowing down this season after winning the World Cup with Les Bleus in the summer.

Mbappe already has 13 goals to his name in Ligue in just 12 games, the same amount as he scored last season in 27 league fixtures.

The former Monaco man is tipped to win the Ballon d'Or in the next few years and is set to be the poster boy of French football for decades to come.

Oh and if you come up against his new card on FIFA, best to leave the game as soon as possible...
