No sign of Messi or Ronaldo…

We’re just a few weeks out from the release of EA Sports FC 24, which is the gaming company’s replacement for their hit FIFA series. But just because it is an end to that particular era, that isn’t going to stop EA Sports from continuing on with their new take on the football game.

Previously, JOE was lucky enough to take part in a sneak preview of the game (which got us pretty psyched for it, to be honest), and this week, EA revealed their top 24 players in the world. The breakdown of how the ranking is sorted is explained by IGN, as follows:

“FC 24 lets male and female players play with and against each other in Ultimate Team, the game’s most popular and controversial mode. Women players are not at a natural disadvantage in Ultimate Team, either.

“If a male and female player have the same attributes (stats), the same height, and the same mass (governed by weight), the outcomes on the virtual pitch are exactly the same. Attributes are relative to the competition the player plays in. This means Chelsea superstar Sam Kerr brings her 90 overall rating relative to the Women’s Super League into Ultimate Team, and can compete with similarly-rated male players in the mode.”

Top footballers on FC 24

Here are is the full list of the top 24 players in the world, according to EA FC 24, along with their score and current league.

At the top, you’ll see the top four players in the world, all with a joint score of 91. And you’ll notice, while Messi does appear further down, Ronaldo doesn’t make the top 24 at all…
