Furthermore, the top team that played most matches was Paris Saint-Germain. Well, this is kind of expected as most players like to play with the iconic duo of Messi and Neymar in FIFA 21. After Messi’s transfer to Paris Saint-Germain, we have seen an enormous increase in PSG’s fans.

Naturally, Mbappé scoring most goals is not a fluke, as he had already gathered a large audience with his talent and athletic skills. Furthermore, he won the FIFA World Cup 2018 and UEFA Nations League 2020/21 by playing for France. Because of his amazing performance for his club as well as the nation, he placed ninth in the vote for the 2021 Ballon d’Or.
