EA Sports has released the player ratings for the new edition, FIFA 22.
The popular video game has over six million users daily, and the release of the player ratings has excited gamers across the world.
Lionel Messi has topped the player rating chart for the eighth time.
- Lionel Messi (RW) – Argentina – 93
- Robert Lewandowski (ST) – Poland – 92
- Cristiano Ronaldo (ST) – Portugal – 91
- Kevin De Bruyne (CM) – Belgium – 91
- Kylian Mbappé (ST) – France – 91
- Neymar Jr (LW) – Brazil – 91
- Jan Oblak (GK) – Slovenia – 91
- Harry Kane (ST) – England – 90
- N’Golo Kanté (CDM) – France – 90
- Manuel Neuer (GK) – Germany – 90
So what are the hits and misses in these ratings? Who has earned their spot, and who has been put there undeservingly?
Messi topping the player ratings won’t be argued by many people.
Despite not winning any silverware with Barcelona, he had an excellent individual season and capped it off with his first international trophy with Argentina.
Lewandowski broke Gerd Muller’s Bundesliga record and is the best striker in Europe.
On that basis, he deserves second spot on the table.
Ronaldo’s third place is definitely an ode to his consistency over the years.
However, given his average season last time out, fans would not have argued had his name surfaced a few spots down the order.
Neymar is another player on the list who has been granted ratings based on his reputation rather than his output last season.
The inclusion of Harry Kane and N’Golo Kante is welcome news for Premier League fans.
Both players worked their socks off last season and were individually the best players for their respective teams.
One of the biggest names missing from the list is Bruno Fernandes.
The Manchester United star was easily the best player in the Premier League last season.
However, he has failed to secure a spot in the top 10 highest-rated players in FIFA 22.
One player who could have challenged Fernandes for his position as the best Premier League player is Mohamed Salah.
He deserved a spot on the list, but it seems the popularity contest of players has meddled in the ranking system once again.
