Published: 26 July 2018
EA Sports are continuing their FUTTIES event in FIFA 18 with another End of an Era card, this time for Roma and Italy legend Daniele De Rossi.
The 35-year-old hasn’t retired from football but did retire from international duty last year after Italy failed to qualify for the World Cup. He will still be playing for AS Roma though, the only club who he has ever played for – making over 441 appearances for the Serie A side.
De Rossi earned 117 caps for his country, putting him fourth in Italy’s all-time appearance list. He’s also Italy’s 12th highest scorer with an impressive 21 international goals to his name.
His card looks ridiculously strong with an overall of 95 and is a new member of the ‘Gullit club’ a term made up by FIFA cards which have all their stats rated 80 or higher.
De Rossi’s pink and blue card excels at everything with 80 pace,85 dribbling, 87 shooting, 95 defending, 94 passing and 96 physicality plus a four-star weak-foot.
Things get even more impressive once you dive into his in-game stats with various stats all rated at 99. He has perfect scores of 99 in shot power, long shots, volleys, penalties, short passing, long passing, composure and interceptions.
Other impressive stats include 98 aggression, 97 strength, 98 standing tackle, 96 sliding tackles and 95 heading.
If you want to get your hands on this card, it might be easier than you’d expect. All you have to do is complete a Squad Builder Challenge which only requires one squad to be submitted. The requirements for the squad is a minimum of one Roma payer and two Calcio A players plus at least two Team of the Week players, a team rating of 86 or higher and chemistry of 70 or higher.
Daniele De Rossi Totti
Totti is not normal – De Rossi emotional after Roma icon’s farewell
Published: 28 May 2017
Daniele De Rossi paid tribute to Francesco Totti after Roma secured victory in the veteran attacker’s emotional last game for the club.
Totti came on early in the second half and helped Roma to a thrilling 3-2 victory over Genoa at Stadio Olimpico, a result which sealed a second-place finish and a place in the Champions League group stage.
The captain then said an emotional farewell to the club’s supporters on the pitch after the match, with De Rossi hailing the 40-year-old accomplishments more than 24 years after his debut.
“There are people who are not normal,” De Rossi, who scored Roma’s second goal, told Sky Italia of Totti.
“There are careers that are not normal. There are only flags and banners for Francesco.
“I saw a banner that said the real battle against modern football is to wear the same jersey for 25 years.
“I know how hard it is to be in a city and a club that divides everyone, but Totti managed to unite everybody. Nobody can argue with Totti.
“Totti is for me above all a friend who I will now not see every day.”
Roma fans will now wait to see whether Totti takes up a new role with the club or continues his playing career with a stint elsewhere.
Luciano Spalletti may also be set to leave amid major speculation linking him with the vacant job at Inter.
“I sincerely doubt many coaches can do better than Spalletti,” said De Rossi.
