CONMEBOL (South American football) has been a very inconsistent feature in FIFA games over the years. Some years we’ve had a few teams, some years we’ve had a bunch of teams. Some years we’ve had whole leagues, some years – none.
FIFA 20 changed all of that by making a move to include South American football in a much more noticeable way. Now we can take on the game in a quest to win the grandest prizes in the region – Copa Sudamericana, Copa Libertadores and the Recopa.
Of course, the expansion of CONMEBOL’s presence in FIFA cannot happen without the involvement of one of the continent’s premier clubs – River Plate. The four-time Copa Libertadores winners are one of the most recognizable football brands not only within South America, but also worldwide.
Their descent into relegation at the start of the 2010s is a distant memory in 2020 and Los Millonarios are back to their winning ways. Two of those four Copa Libertadores’ came after their return to Argentina’s top flight in 2012 - the latest trophy coming in 2018.
With such recent success, it is a given that River Plate have some decent players on their roster. While you can’t expect to find Barcelona and Real Madrid quality, there’s still plenty to work with if you wish to choose the Argentine team to play with.
We picked the best players out of the already decent bunch. Take a look!
