It’s that time of the year again: EA has announced the ratings for the top 22 players in FIFA 22. And as usual they’ve sparked a vociferous debate.
There are a few eyebrow raisers in here, but let’s start at the top and with Cristiano Ronaldo, who has been downgraded one point in overall score.
Ronaldo was rated 92 overall in last year’s game, and second only to Lionel Messi’s 93. For FIFA 22, however, Ronaldo has a 91 overall rating, and is booted into joint third alongside the likes of Manchester City’s Kevin De Bruyne, Kylian Mbappé and Neymar of Paris Saint-Germain, and Atletico de Madrid keeper Jan Oblak.
