As the season winds up, and champions league is now over. FIFA has released new ratings and top 100 players of the game.
At number one, Lionel Lionel Messi takes charge, despite losing the league to Real Madrid and a terrible 8-2 loss to Bayern Munich In the Champions League. Cristiano Ronaldo is the second-best FIFA 21 player with a 92 Rating. Robert Lewandowski follows him at third after winning the Champions League, Bundesliga, DFB Pokal, and also being the top scorer of this year’s UCL. At number 4, Neymar JR who made it to the champions league finals with won treble will get a 91 Rating. Kevin De Bryune has also gotten 91 ratings, and he will be in the fifth position.
After these majestic 5, we have Oblak, Ter Stegen, Virgil Van Dijk, Mane, and Salah securing their position in the top 10.
I was surprised to see that Neuer was behind Oblak and Ter Stegen, considering he captained Bayern Munich and made some amazing saves in the final against PSG. Some players have seen a slight improvement in their ratings, while some like Romelu Lukaku, have seen a bit of dip.
Lukaku had an excellent year at Inter Milan, scoring 23 and assisting 2 goals. Despite that, EA has given him an 85 Rating. The Belgium star wasn’t happy and took it to Twitter where he bashed EA and said ratings are a mess.
‘Let’s be honest fifa just mess with the ratings so we players start complaining about the game and give them more publicity’ Lukaku tweeted ‘i ain’t with this s***. I know what i do’
FIFA Ratings are controversial every year. The ratings for some players aren’t very accurate, and fans simply cannot get over the fact that their best player rating is below someone else. I think FIFA should start giving ratings based on the data collected by scouts. This is what Football Manage does. They send over thousands of voluntary scouts to closely watch each player. Afterward, they gather their data, discuss with the team, and then drop ratings.
FIFA 21 is to release on October 6, 2020. The game will join PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Steam. Pre-orders for the game have already started.
