By Chukwuka Joseph (AGENDAWATCHDOG) – Lionel Messi will once again be the highest-rated player on FIFA with the Barcelona and Argentina star just ahead of Christiano Ronaldo in the upcoming video game.
Messi, who was linked with a move to Manchester City in recent weeks before deciding to stay with Barcelona, is given a rating of 93 by EA Sports for the latest instalment of their massively-popular series.
That puts him just ahead of Juventus and Portugal star Cristiano Ronaldo on 92 though his club appears as Piemonte Calcio in the game for licensing reasons.
Messi was also the top-rated player in the FIFA 20 edition with 94 and, like Ronaldo, he has slipped one point in the out-of-100 assessment of attributes.
Messi ended the 2019-20 season without any silverware whereas Ronaldo did win the Serie A title with Juventus.
