Fifa 21 ratings will be revealed on September 10 at 4 pm UK time, according to an official statement from the publisher of the game, EA Sports.
The game’s ambassadors like Mason Mount, Steven Bergwijn, Phil Foden, Sergio Dest, and Rodrygo were in display in a video the game publisher tweeted via its verified Twitter handle today to announce the big event of revealing the FIFA 21 ratings.
What are the FIFA 21 ratings?
Whenever EA Sports wants to release a new version of the FIFA series, the video game publisher will announce a list of 100 players and their ratings for their users to know which of them has been upgraded, downgraded, or static.
One interesting part of the yearly ratings is the fact that football fans are always looking forward to seeing the player who would be the highest-rated player in the game. In the forthcoming edition of the ratings, football fans would want to see who would overtake Barcelona talisman, Lionel Messi, in Fifa 21 ratings.
In the past couple of years, the 33-year-old Argentina international has been the highest-rated footballer in the video game. His career rival, Cristiano Ronaldo has never overtaken him since the Argentine football icon took over the reign as the highest-rated player in the game.
The only time Ronaldo came very close to dethroning Messi was in the FIFA 19 version where they were both given the same ratings. Since then, the Juventus and Portuguese football legend has kept a close distance to Messi on the overall rating chart.
Who is likely to overtake Messi
Though Cristiano Ronaldo has been the closest rival to Lionel Messi as far as FUT rating is concerned. However, there could be very strong competition from Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski.
The 32-year-old Polish striker was so phenomenal in the just concluded 2019-2020 season where he scored a total number of 55 goals and provided a total number of 10 assists in 47 games in all competitions. His personal effort helped Bayern Munich to win three titles in the season including the UEFA Champions League.
In the past season, no player has achieved as much as the Polish striker achieved in terms of his personal effort and the success of his club. So, he is likely to overtake Lionel Messi’s rating in the coming version of the video game.
While players like Erling Haaland, Mason Greenwood, Jadon Sancho, Bukayo Saka, Mohamed Salah, Alisson, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Jadon Sancho, Bruno Fernandes, Ferland Mendy among others, are expected to get an upgrade in Fifa 21 ratings.
Below is a list of the probable top 10 of FIFA 21 ratings
- Robert Lewandowski (94)
- Lionel Messi (93)
- Cristiano Ronaldo (92)
- Kylian Mbappe (91)
- Kevin De Bruyne (91)
- Neymar Jnr (91)
- Jan Oblak (90)
- Virgil van Dijk (90)
- Sadio Mane (90)
- Eden Hazard (89)
Besides the player ratings, EA Sports will reveal the quickest players in FIFA 21, the full list of players with five-star skills, and other lists which can serve as a guide to the kind of players users of the game would want to go for when they start to set up their FUT 21.
