Just two of Harden's FIFA 2019 Ultimate Team are not Madrid players and every one of his subs have beards in keeping with the Rockets' own style.

James Harden is a Real Madrid fan. His FIFA 2019 'Ultimate Team' is made up of eight players from los Blancos according to SportYou. The entire back four is made up of madridistas: Dani Carvajal, Raphael Varane, Ramos and Marcelo.

He plays with a slightly unorthodox 4-2-4, which is in keeping with his offensive style. The only players who are not from Real Madrid are in midfield with Brazil's legendary Socrates and Manchester United Paul Pogba. Up front, he has Bale, Ronaldo Nazário, Raul and Vinicius.

The bench takes a slight dip in terms of quality but his subs list all have a beard. The Houston Rockets point guard, nicknamed 'The Beard' has Tim Howard, Joe Ledley, Miles Jedinák and France's Olivier Giroud, Diego Costa and Rob Sinclair.
