Neymar was initially on the cover of PES 2018 for Barcelona just before his transfer to PSG saw him acquiring swiftly scrubbed out. Nonetheless, seeing as how he wasn't the focal point of your cover and instead shared the limelight with his teammates, it really is not fairly exactly the same.

It will likely be exciting to find out where EA Sports go from here before FIFA 19 landing Pc, PS4, and Xbox One in September.
