Football News

For many football fans, the day the latest edition of FIFA is released is just as exciting as the first game of the new season.

The wait can feel like torture to the most hardcore gamers but we are now in the final stages of FIFA 17's release.

And EA Sports have been perfectly teasing their fans with various announcements about the game and the individual stars to feature.

So we already know how the best players are ranked as well as who are the strongest and fastest names available.

But we can now tell you who will be the most potent in front of goal - a pretty important attribute, after all, you can't win without scoring.

10. Lukas Podolski | Club: Galatasaray

Podolski may have called time on his international career this summer but he is still a force to be reckoned with at domestic level and a shooting rating of 86 proves he could be a useful addition to the right club on career mode.

9. Paulo Dybala | Club: Juventus

Dybala is one of the most exciting forwards in the world right now so it seems right that his FIFA rating matches his current stock in the game. Also rated at 86, but his age and dribbling skills make the Argentine a very exciting prospect.

8. Gonzalo Higuain | Club: Juventus

Spending £76 million on Higuain looked a bit of a risk at first but Juventus knew what they were getting - a proven goalscorer. He may be 28-years-old but with his shooting valued at 87, the forward can still be relied upon to find the back of the net more often than not.

7. Robert Lewandowski | Club: Bayern Munich

Lewandowski was one of the deadliest strikers in Europe last season so it is a little surprising he hasn't been ranked higher up in this list with a rating of 87.

6. Gareth Bale | Club: Real Madrid

Fresh from his Euro 2016 heroics, Bale is one of Zinedine Zidane's most trusted stars at the Bernabeu and with a shooting rating of 87 on top of his other very highly valued traits, it's easy to understand why.

5. Sergio Aguero | Club: Manchester City

Aguero is the first Premier League striker to make an appearance on the list and given his track record in recent seasons, there might have been cause to argue for an even higher rating than 88.

4. Luis Suarez | Club: Barcelona

We're into the 90s now and it would have been impossible to award Suarez with anything lower. 40 goals from 35 appearances in La Liga last season really says it all.

3. Zlatan Ibrahimovic | Club: Manchester United

Ibrahimovic has already shown in his first four Premier League matches that he can still cut it at the top level. Like Suarez, he is rated at 90 and can just about score from anywhere.

2. Lionel Messi | Club: Barcelona

Now we've reached the big guns and it is Messi who is the runner up on this occasion. Barcelona fans may feel disappointed at a shooting rating of 90 but the Argentine star has plenty of other tricks in his locker in the game to keep supporters satisfied.

1. Cristiano Ronaldo | Club: Real Madrid

Unsurprisingly the recently crowned Best Player in Europe tops this chart too. A rating of 92 can probably almost guarantee the user hitting the target with every attempt from Ronaldo.
