Europe is by far the most-represented continent at the World Cup, sending 14 total nations to Russia. Will one of them make it four straight tournament wins for the continent?
The Union of European Football Associations (UEFA) is the undisputed powerhouse of world football, both at the club and international level. Considering that all of the best players in the world are either European or they play for European clubs, it's easy to see why the continent dominates at every level. From recent champions Germany and Spain to newer challengers like Belgium and Portugal, no European country can be taken lightly in this tournament.
Even without the many top players in the countries whose ratings have already been revealed (Belgium, Spain, France, Germany, England), UEFA national teams are packed with world-class talent. Portugal's Cristiano Ronaldo unsurprisingly tops the ratings charts, but he's joined by the likes of extraordinary players such as Poland forward Robert Lewandowski, Denmark playmaker Christian Eriksen, and creative Croatian Luka Modrić.
Lead the best of Europe through the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia™ update, available as a free content download to all FIFA 18 players on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC on May 29.
