Word to the wise: if you plan on reliving England's emotional penalty shootout win over Colombia from the 2018 World Cup Round of 16, then you'll want to do it inside the bowl-like surroundings of Spartak Moscow's Otkritie Arena.

The stadium is being placed in the 'Rest Of The World' section of teams in FIFA 19, presumably because PES 2019 has the rights to Russia's Premier League. Does that mean there won't be a Russian division in FIFA? Probably not, but it is a tad worrying to see it lumped in with the best of the rest.

Still great to have though.
