Lionel Messi, the Argentinian legend made all his way to the top of world football. His achievements, performance, and status are almost unavoidable and speak enough for his current position. Although Messi’s first season in Paris was all a disappointment. His performance and stats were really low.

But one season is not enough to decide the position of a player especially when he had lived up to such great figures throughout his entire career. Fortunately, EA looks at things from a different point of view. And hence decided to rank him among the top 5 players in the world in FIFA 23.

6. Mohammed Salah

His exceptional performance and stats have brought him among the top 10 players as per EA’s ranking chart. Although he slacked in the later half of the season, his performance is still alive in the minds and that’s what earned him an extra point than in the last year.

7. Virgil Van Dijk

Club: Liverpool

Position: CB

Player Rating: 90

Inevitably, every Liverpool fan remembers Virgil’s consistent performance in the last season. Although he might not seem very aggressive or hyped up with his game, there are barely any faults to find as the center-back.

Moreover, last year’s performance after a long injury was like a blessing in his career. Although Van doesn’t seem to be at the peak of his game in the term 2022-23, it is just a course of time when he gets back to his shape. Therefore, considering his overall performance in the last season, Van has been rand at No. 7, with a rating of 90.

8. Cristiano Ronaldo

FIFA 23 Highest Rated Players

Club: Manchester United

Position: ST

Player Rating: 90

The name Cristiano Ronaldo is itself an emotion for many football fans all over the world. This 37year-old Portuguese footballer has a historical carrier with inevitable stats and records. Even so, his last season has been a complete disappointment ending with their lowest points tally.

And as per the critics, his team’s loss was majorly a result of his lack of mobility and form. However, that is not the actual case with such a dysfunctional team. EA certainly considered all the factors and decided to list him among the top 10 players in FIFA 23 with an overall rating of 90.

Thibaut Courtois, the Belgium Goal Keeper also had an impressive season last year. His brilliant performance especially in the Champions League final had set his name among the highest-rated players in FIFA 23.

A magazine published last year didn’t mention his name among the top 10 goalkeepers after his phenomenal performance. However, all that disappointments should no more bother after EA’s ratings.
