Sheffield Wednesday’s Vincent Sasso Trolls EA Sports About His Image in FIFA 17

Sheffield Wednesday’s Vincent Sasso Trolls EA Sports About His Image in FIFA 17

Vincent Sasso was one of many footballers who got their hands on the new FIFA 17 game yesterday, but the Sheffield Wednesday defender wasn’t completely pleased with the product.

The Frenchman, as you would be, was keen to play as himself in this year’s game…

However, he quickly found out that EA Sports had given him a dummy silhouette image, instead of an actual picture of his face like the rest of his teammates.

Sasso reacted by logging into his Twitter account and sending a message to EA, claiming he would send them a selfie if it would help his cause:


Who knows, maybe EA will see Sasso’s Tweet and upgrade his player profile?

The 25-year-old has only made one appearance for the Owls this season, as he came off the bench for a 20-minute cameo…

At least he has plenty of time on his hands to hone his skills on the new game…



We talk Aberdeen v Rangers, what it means for Mark Warburton, Celtic, Killie, wonder goals and much more in this week’s podcast.

We also chat to ex-Hearts and Dundee United defender Ryan McGowan on life in Scotland and China:
