Within the last hour, Rickie Lambert has just completed his Liverpool FC transfer for £4 million plus add-ons. At the same time, some FIFA 14 fans are already opening up World Cup packs to get lucky on Rickie Lambert England cards for Ultimate Team.
It is good news for Liverpool FC transfer addicts, with one piece of business completed before the World Cup begins on June 12. Now, we have seen that some FIFA 14 owners have had their own Rickie Lambert success by picking out his World Cup card randomly after the FIFA 14 World Cup update.
As you can see from our image above, Rickie Lambert is only a 76 rating for England. He is behind other England strikers Daniel Sturridge, Wayne Rooney and Danny Welbeck, but after the real life transfer we have a feeling that FIFA 14 fanatics would love to try and get Rickie Lambert in a pack instead.
It will be a great moment seeing Rickie Lambert play for England on TV, then having Rickie Lambert star in your FIFA 14 England squad on Ultimate Team as well.
As we told you in a previous article, we wouldn’t be surprised if we see a Rickie Lambert FIFA 15 upgrade as well from EA in time for the next game.
