#GamingBytes: FIFA 19 finally fixes Jesse Lingard, Wilfried Zaha's hair
FIFA 19 is the latest addition to the popular EA franchise and it has been praised for its realism. The attention to detail helps EA to deliver the most immersive footballing experience possible. While most fans have praised the new edition, Manchester United's Jesse Lingard and Crystal Palace's Wilfried Zaha weren't happy with it. Here's how EA rectified its mistake.
Jesse Lingard and Wilfried Zaha's hairstyles
Lingard, the United forward, who has his own 'JLingz' celebration in-game, complained that his hairstyle has been the same on FIFA for '99 years'. He was shown with shaved sides in the original version and asked it to be changed to his current hairstyle. Zaha, too, put in a request via Twitter to have his old close-cropped hair changed to his current dreadlocks.

FIFA fixes the hairy situation
FIFA released a new update to address the concerns of these players regarding their hairstyles. The changes were so impressive that both complainants took to Twitter again to express their gratitude. Lingard exclaimed 'Finally after all these years', while Zaha said it was 'about time'. Among other stars with rectified facial features are Real Madrid's Gareth Bale, Tottenham's Son Heung-Min and Atletico's Diego Costa.

The need for representational accuracy
FIFA's quick rectification of the inaccuracy in something as trivial as a player's haircut, shows its attention to detail. FIFA remains extremely popular because EA replicates real-world football in the game, be it stadiums, leagues or players. Therefore, keeping a sharp eye on the minute details only goes to improve the overall experience and strengthens FIFA's popularity.
