The 2018 FIFA World Cup is in full swing, which means that the Festival of FUTball party is just getting started. The first series of group stage matches set the world on fire with dramatic upsets, late winners, and quite a few stunning goals. Superstars delivered and underdogs rose to the occasion throughout the week to give us the first Team of the Matchday, part of this year's Festival of FUTball.
From Cristiano Ronaldo's sensational hat trick that sealed a 3-3 draw for Portugal against Spain, to Hirving Lozano and his strike that upset reigning champions Germany, these are the players who made the biggest impact in the opening matches of the 2018 World Cup. Look for their special FUT items in packs for a limited time and enjoy the first of many Festival of FUTball events.
