FIFA 20 Rankings: Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo continue dominance atop rankings, Liverpool stars break into top-10

  • EA Sports rescued football fans from the exasperating tedium of the international break, releasing a list of the top-100 players from the upcoming FIFA 20.

  • The top-10 is fairly predictable, with Lionel Messi coming out on top in his seemingly ceaseless battle with Cristiano Ronaldo for the number 1 spot.

  • Toby Alderweireld, Matthijs de Ligt and Aymeric Laporte broke into the top-100 for the first time, while Gareth Bale and Mesut Ozil fail to make the cut.

EA Sports took on the task of rescuing football fans around the world from the exasperating tedium of the international break on Tuesday, releasing a list of the top-100 players from the upcoming video-game FIFA 20, which is set to hit the markets on 27 September.

The top-10 is fairly predictable, with Lionel Messi coming out on top in his seemingly ceaseless battle with Cristiano Ronaldo for the number 1 spot in the game. The Argentine attacker had yet another excellent season in front of goal with Barcelona, earning him a rating of 94, one point higher than Ronaldo's 93. Coming in at a very respectable third is the series' long-time poster-boy Neymar Jr., who rather mysteriously sees his rating remain constant at 92, despite missing most of last season with a long-term injury. Belgian duo Eden Hazard and Kevin de Bruyne, as well as Luka Modric, keep hold of their top-10 rankings, while Liverpool boys Mohamed Salah and Virgil van Dijk muscle their way in thanks to their Champions-League winning season.
