Manchester United youngster Shola Shoretire has been added to a FIFA gaming title for the very first time, with EA Sports adding the winger to FIFA 21.
The 17-year-old made his senior debut for United against Newcastle United in the Premier League on Sunday, replacing Marcus Rashford as a late substitute at Old Trafford, in a game that eventually finished 3-1 in the Reds’ favour.
Shoretire also featured among United’s substitutes in their midweek win over Real Sociedad, alongside January signing Amad, who was also recently added to United’s squad on FIFA 21. Following this game, the promising English winger was added to FIFA 21 in EA Sports’ latest player database update, which is now available to download on PlayStation, Xbox and PC as of February 19.
These updates are regularly released by EA Sports to make FIFA 21 as realistic as possible, with these updates also changing player attributes, ratings, potential and more, based on real-life form.
So, how does Manchester United youngster Shola Shoretire rate on FIFA 21? and, how much potential does he have?
Here is a summary of Shola Shoretire’s profile on FIFA 21, as of February 19, 2021.
Shola Shoretire’s FIFA 21 profile
Overall rating: 60/100
Overall potential: 84/100
Best attributes: Balance (85), agility (83), sprint speed (74), acceleration (70), dribbling (62), ball control (61)
Age: 16 (At the start of a Career Mode save on FIFA 21)
Weak Foot: Four-Star
Skill Moves: Three-Star
Shoretire has been given an overall rating of 60 out of 100 on FIFA 21, which is his first ever rating on any FIFA gaming title. To put this value into context, this rating is the same as fellow United youngster Hannibal Mejbri, but Shoretire is a year younger.
But, his rating is lower than Amad, who is rated at 66 out of 100, although the Ivorian has had slightly more first team playing experience in Italy.
But Shoretire’s overall rating is really impressive at 84 out of 100, which is higher than Hannibal, making him a more exciting talent according to FIFA 21.
This potential means that Shoretire can become better than players like Donny van de Beek (82) and Anthony Martial (83), and reach the same level as Edinson Cavani (84) on FIFA 21.
