Fifa 22 has released a list of top players. The players who made the list are some of the best in the game and their ratings reflect their talent for the game. Included on the list are names such as Robert Lewandoski, Cristiano Ronaldo, Kevin De Bruyne, and Sadio Mane.

The ratings have seen some significant nerfs, compared to previous titles in the franchise. A few Liverpool players’ ratings have been nerfed and so was Ronaldo’s rating, which was nerfed by one point.

It was surprising to see Romelu Lukaku and Erling Haaland not making this list, given the quality of their playmaking in the pitch in real life. These ratings mean that Messi will be the highest rated on-field player in the Champions League, and Harry Kane will be the top-rated player in the newly introduced UEFA Conference League.

The fact that Ronaldo and Messi still make it to the top of this list, despite young players like Mbappe and Haaland, is a testimony to their legacy.
