Karim Benzema, Real Madrid, 2022/23

FIFA 23 was launched on September 30, 2022 and for many gamers, this was one of the biggest days of the year.

And it is something of a landmark game as it will be the last that EA release under the present licensing agreement with world football's governing body.

Furthermore, there is a dramatic shift in who is top of the player ratings. It has been a battle between Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi for who has the highest figure for more than a decade but they are joined by new stars for this edition.

FIFA 23 does not have a single best player. Messi, though, is one of five players to have been awarded a rating of 91 along with cover star Kylian Mbappe, Robert Lewandowski, Karim Benzema and Kevin De Bruyne.

Cristiano Ronaldo, meanwhile, enjoyed a rating of 91 for FIFA 22 but sees his figure drop by one. He joins Mohamed Salah, Virgil van Dijk, Manuel Neuer and Thibaut Courtois on 90.

EA Sports, the game developers of FIFA 23, have rewarded Benzema for his impressive 2021/22 season by boosting his overall rating by two; the Frenchman is now rated 91.

Messi has lost his title of the sole highest-rated player in the game after dropping from 93 rating in FIFA 22 to a 91 rating in FIFA 23. Poland international Lewandowksi has also been demoted, dropping from 92 to 91 rated. De Bruyne and Mbappe have kept their rating from FIFA 22.

Kevin de Bruyne is 91 rated in FIFA 23, while Erling Haaland is 88 rated

There are five players rated 90, including Ronaldo, who has dropped one rating from FIFA 22. His 90 rated card is his lowest base card at the start of any FIFA since 2011 when he was 89 rated at Real Madrid.

Liverpool pair Salah and Van Dijk are also 90 rated, along with Courtois and Neuer, who are the highest-rated goalkeepers. It means that 10 players are rated 90 or above, a drop from 11 last year.

Like his PSG team-mate Messi, Neymar has also been demoted two ratings and his base card for FIFA 23 is rated 89. Tottenham Hotspur stars Heung-Min Son and Harry Kane, Chelsea’s N’Golo Kante and Atletico Madrid’s Jan Oblak are tied with Neymar with an overall rating of 89. Manchester United’s Casemiro, Manchester City’s Ederson, Liverpool’s Alisson, and Bayern Munich pair Sadio Mane and Joshua Kimmich are also rated 89 as well.

Marquinhos, Marc-Andre ter Stegen, Luka Modric and Toni Kroos are both rated 88, along with four Manchester City players - Erling Haaland, Joao Cancelo, Ruben Dias and Bernardo Silva.

Antonio Rudiger and Frenkie de Jong are among 13 players rated 87, alongside Liverpool trio Fabinho, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andrew Robertson.

Christopher Nkunku has jumped up five ratings to 86 after his excellent 2021/22 campaign. Patrik Schick has also received a big increase - moving up six ratings to 85 - joining the likes of Diogo Jota and Theo Hernandez at that rating.

English trio Mason Mount, Declan Rice and Jack Grealish round out the top 100, with all three rated 84 in FIFA 23.
