Cristiano Ronaldo overtakes Lionel Messi as FIFA seventeen’s best player
Written by Morenike Adebayo on September 6, 2016
Real Madrid’s Ronaldo is the top-rated player in FIFA seventeen. In last year’s game he was second, behind his long-standing rival, Lionel Messi. Ronaldo is rated ninety-four in FIFA seventeen. In FIFA sixteen, he was rated ninety-three.
Barcelona’s forward Lionel Messi is rated ninety-three this year. He was rated ninety-four in last year’s game. Messi misses out on top spot, then, but he is the top-ranked dribbler this year with ninety-six.
Others in the top ten include Barcelona’s Neymar and Luis Suarez, who tied with ninety-two over all. Bayern Munich’s Manuel Neuer follows with ninety-two rating. Manchester United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic is the best outfield Premier League player with a rating of ninety.
There is however no player from defending Premier League champions Leicester City in the top ten, which means reigning PFA Players’ Player of the Year Riyad Mahrez misses out. FIFA seventeen is out on PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox three-sixty and PC on the twenty-ninth of September, 2016.
