In just over two weeks’ time, football fans will finally be able to get their hands on FIFA 20.
Ahead of the release, the franchise have already confirmed a handful of changes to the game, including the return of FIFA Street in the new ‘Volta’ mode.
And now, EA Sports have announced the changes to the top 100 players that will be a part of the game.
Most notably, Lionel Messi has pipped Cristiano Ronaldo to top spot with a 94 rating as his fellow world star dropped down to second at 93.
Neymar Jr and Kevin De Bruyne maintained third and fifth spot respectively whilst Eden Hazard moved up to fourth.

- De Bruyne puts on masterclass for Belgium
Jan Oblak entered the top 10 in sixth place alongside Virgil van Dijk in seventh whilst Mohamed Salah and Marc-Andre ter Stegen take eighth and 10th respectively.
Unsurprisingly, the majority of FIFA’s top 100 stars who will be featured in the game all play their football in Europe.
In fact, 99% of the list play on European turf.
And the only one who’s in a different continent is LA Galaxy’s Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
The 37-year-old, who has spent most of his career in Europe, made the switch to the United States in 2018 and will go into the game with a rating of 85.
Ibrahimovic’s card contains 56 pace, 88 shot, 77 pass, 78 dribbling, 34 defense and 78 physical form.
LA Galaxy currently sit eighth in the Western Conference, only one point adrift of the play-offs.
And the Swedish front-man has contributed 23 goals this season which, for a player who is arguably coming to the end of his career, is a fantastic record.
Ibrahimovic isn’t the only player to claim an overall rating of 85 either as he’ll be joined by the likes of James Rodriguez, Mauro Icardi and Inter Milan’s Romelu Lukaku.News Now - Sport News
