In a tweet evidently published early by @EAFussball, the official German language Twitter account for EA SPORTS' FIFA titles, it appeared those hoping for #Justice4Lewa might not be getting it after all.
"Geht jetzt zu #FUT und stimmt für euren 12ten #TOTY Spieler ab! #FIFA20," (or roughly "Go to FUT now and vote for your 12th Team of the Year player") the since deleted tweet read at publish 6 January around 6:02 p.m. UK. The options therein rather inexplicably snubbed Lewa for the likes of Real Madrid's Sergio Ramos.
Fortunately just 10 minutes after its deletion, the actual TOTY Fan's Choice in-game player pick options proved better.
Joining Bayern Munich's record goalscorer Robert Lewandowski are "Piemonte Calcio" striker and FIFA fan favorite Cristiano Ronaldo, Ajax's Hakim Ziyech, Manchester City winger Raheem Sterling, and Real Madrid (late of Chelsea)'s Eden Hazard. Lewa's snub was easily the most controversial of the 11-man side announced earlier Monday.
Though CR7 seems inevitable given the number of players who will be looking to get unlimited-Ronaldo matches for the new-in-20 Friendlies mode, which player are you hoping is added to packs this coming Friday, 10 January?
