Once again, it’s that time of year.
As Europe’s major soccer are set to begin their 2020-21 seasons, EA SPORTS on Thursday released the top-100 player ratings for “FIFA 21,” the upcoming installment of the hit video soccer game.
Lionel Messi is the leader with a 93 overall rating. Cristiano Ronaldo is second with a 92. Few will argue forcefully against the merits of the Messi-Ronaldo duopoly, but what about those who follows them? Do their “FIFA 21” ratings understate or overstate their ability?
NESN.com’s Marcus Kwesi O’Mard and Marc DiBenedetto examine the “FIFA 21” top-100 player ratings on this week’s episode of the “NESN Soccer Podcast.”
