In just a few weeks time the annual wait will be over, with FIFA 16 set to be snatched hastily from store shelves, grabbed from letterboxes or downloaded in eager anticipation. Of course the main focus of the game is the players, and we all want to know who are the best and just how ratings have changed over the course of the past 12 months. Well, luckily the good people at EA Sports have been drip-feeding us eager gamers some nuggets of information in the shape of a countdown of the best of the best… And here are numbers 20 to 11…
20) Philipp Lahm
Bayern’s star full-back/holding midfielder remains one of the best around.
19) Luka Modric
The Croatian’s metronomic passing earns him an 87 rating.
18) Mesut Ozil
Arsenal’s German playmaker maintains his slot at the upper end of the game’s rankings.
17) Sergio Ramos
One of the better centre-backs around, as reflected by a cool 87 overall rating.
16) Cesc Fabregas
His recent form hasn’t dropped Fabregas down the pecking order. 90 for passing is truly impressive.
15) Jerome Boateng
Physically imposing, Boateng comes at No.15 with an 87 rating.
14) Toni Kroos
81 and 88 for shooting and passing respectively should make Kroos one to get.
13) James Rodriguez
The Colombian is once again one of the best ‘line of three’ players for Real Madrid.
12) Sergio Aguero
89 for pace and 87 for shooting… Aguero will be lethal.
11) Andres Iniesta
Still one of the best in the business. His champagne style will surely be reflected by his 88 rating.
