The Portuguese star has picked up something of a reputation for his ability as a FIFA player, as well as a real-life footballer.
During FIFA 20, he went 30-0 over the course of a Weekend League, a feat achieved only by some of the best players in the world.
Jota is helped along the way by having a 99-rated ‘pro card’, which are given to many top-level players.
Tav is in esteemed company
In Jota’s side, Tavenier lines up alongside the likes of Ronaldo, Neymar, Kylian Mbappe, Ruud Gullit and Patrick Vieira.
Tavenier’s 84-rated inform card has proved to be a popular addition to the game after being named in the 12th Team of the Week this season.
According to Futbin, gamers around the world have already used the card for nearly 78,000 games across FIFA.
With Joe Gomez also in the side, it may surprise fans to not see more of a Liverpool contingent running throughout the side.
Alexander-Arnold is a surprise omission from the side, but Tavenier’s attacking qualities look like they may have given him the nod this time around.
