In the month since 'FIFA 23' was released, over 4 billion goals have been scored - and counting!

The stats boffins at EA have been keeping count of the top goalscorers in the new 'FIFA' game, and the most eye-popping stat reveals that players across all platforms have amassed over 30,000 years of gameplay on the pitch so far this season.

English wonderkid Jude Bellingham has been the top transfer of choice for Career Mode managers, with the highly regarded midfielder signed by over 600,000 managers so far.

The addition of AFC Richmond from 'Ted Lasso' has also proven to be a hit with players, with the team winning over 1 million matches so far.

All these stats need a strong internet connection to back it up, and in 'FIFA', the split-second decision is crucial to winning a game and is the difference between winning and losing.

Virgin Media has the best internet speed for any budding Carlo Ancelotti - you can check out just how lightning fast their speeds are on their website.
