Cristiano Ronaldo FIFA 18

With EA Sports continually trying to develop FIFA 18 into the most realistic football simulation game on the market, they brought in the Ballon d'Or winner to their studio to replicate the complete motion of his kicking skills.

Watch below how the clever bods at FIFA got Ronny to show how it's done – and ultimately, what it'll look like when you try to get him terrifying goalkeepers upon the game's release in September. 

"We need another deep breath..." 

Of course. 

FIFA 18 launches on Xbox One and Playstation 4 on September 29.
