  • Acceleration: 79
  • Sprint Speed: 83

Overall Pace: 81

A -6 from FIFA 22, Ronaldo has been downgraded for pace. But probably rightly so. This will make him far less desirable in FIFA 23, but chemistry styles could, literally, bring him back up to speed.

  • Att. Positioning: 95
  • Finishing: 93
  • Shot Power: 93
  • Long Shots: 90
  • Volleys: 90
  • Penalties: 90

Overall Shooting: 92

As the maestro has aged, his shooting is still certainly top-notch – which is reflected in his new FIFA stats.


Cristiano Ronaldo’s passing breakdown in FIFA 23

  • Vision: 76
  • Crossing: 80
  • FK Accuracy: 79
  • Short Pass: 80
  • Long Pass: 75
  • Curve: 81

Overall Passing: 78

Now, this is the first set of stats that does seem a little harsh. Ronaldo still can certainly pick a pass and this has been part of his all-round game for years. Free-kick accuracy 79? Yep, probably deserved.

  • Agility: 77
  • Balance: 67
  • Reactions: 94
  • Ball Control: 88
  • Dribbling: 85
  • Composure: 95

Overall Dribbling: 85

This is what may kill CR7’s card in FIFA 23. Balance is always a key aspect for an attacking threat and at a low rating of 67, depending on the style of play FIFA 23 needs, Ronaldo’s card may be a disaster.


Cristiano Ronaldo’s defending breakdown in FIFA 23

  • Interceptions: 29
  • Heading Accuracy: 90
  • Defensive Awareness: N/A
  • Stand Tackle: 32
  • Slide Tackle: 24

Overall Defending: 34

This one doesn’t really matter too much, but it’s all probably justified. The striker isn’t renowned for his tracking back and getting stuck in defensively, so we deem this as nothing but fair.


Cristiano Ronaldo’s physical breakdown in FIFA 23

  • Jumping: 95
  • Stamina: 76
  • Strength: 77
  • Aggression: 63

Overall Physical: 75

Finally, we have his physical attributes, which are underwhelming. His jumping is bang on. He has one of the best leaps in world football, but as age progresses his stamina depletes and depletes – which will make him tired at the end of FIFA matches.
