Fabio Cardoso Reckons Rangers Team-Mate Dalcio Should Be on the Front Cover of FIFA 18

Fabio Cardoso Reckons Rangers Team-Mate Dalcio Should Be on the Front Cover of FIFA 18

Rangers defender Fabio Cardoso has been singing Dalcio’s praises, telling his Twitter followers that the winger should be the cover star of FIFA 18.

Yes, the honour may have fallen to Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo for this year’s title… but Cardoso prefers the 21-year-old who is on loan from Benfica.

Cardoso and Dalcio played together at the Estádio da Luz, before arriving at Ibrox this summer as part of Pedro Caixinha’s overhaul of the playing staff.

Time will tell as to whether Dalcio can force his way into Caixinha’s plans, especially as the season progresses and the squad becomes stretched.

However, with Daniel Candeias, Niko Kranjcar and Dean Windass all seemingly ahead of the youngster in the pecking order… it looks to be a difficult task.
