Lukaku after Zinchenko and Firmino

Very little information was filtered out, except for the presence of over 5,000 licensed players and the possibility to “play against other players from around the world”. The UFL will be partially revealed in a month, to compete with the untouchables FIFA and the revamped eFootball (ex-PES).
While Oleksandr Zinchenko and Roberto Firmino were then announced as ambassadors, a third player joined this already iconic pairing: Romelu Lukaku. The Chelsea forward confirmed the news on Instagram when he revealed one of his in-game cards.

I’ve been following the news around this game for some time and I really like their philosophy and approach to game development,” the Belgian striker’s reaction to the official press release. I’m looking forward to seeing what Strikerge will bring to football players and fans as the game continues.”
At the initiative of independent Belarusian studio Strykerz and “in development since 2016,” the sport has already announced partnerships with six European clubs: Monaco, West Ham, Sporting Portugal, Borussia Mochengladbach, Chakthior Donetsk and Besiktas. “Stay tuned for more big announcements!” The UFL promised on Twitter.
