5 Indian players with the highest potential in FIFA 18
FIFA 18 may not feature the ISL as a league in itself from the subcontinent, but it does include the national sides of some of the best sub continent countries. Among these, India is undoubtedly one of those countries that spring to mind when you consider the recent jump in FIFA rankings of the team as well as the fact that the FIFA U-17 World Cup is scheduled to be played across the country this year.
So there is no surprise really, that EA Sports' biggest franchise makes its way to India as a way to promote as well as diversify its roots across the world. The FIFA 18 Indian national football team isn't obviously anywhere near the top brass in the world, but it does have some exciting prospects.
With the U-17 World Cup nearby, there is a renewed feeling of optimism that the youngsters could pave a very decent path for themselves as well as Indian football in the years to come. Hence the potential of some of these players is sky high and could be fulfilled if coached and trained the right way. Here are 5 Indian players with the highest potential in FIFA 18:
#5 Daniel Lalhlimpuia - 67 (POT)
You may not have heard too much about this particular youngster but the fact is that it's hard not to pay attention to Daniel Lalhlimpuia if you're a fan of Indian football. At just 20 years of age, the Mizoram native has lit up Indian football by becoming captain of the U-19 side and earning his senior cap a year ago.
His potential of 67 is largely due to his young age and the fact that he could become one of the leaders in an exciting group of revolutionary young players in the Indian national side. His overall rating of 54 may not be too fancy, but expect this number to grow as he matures and grabs some more caps for his country.
