EA Sports' countdown of the top 100 players in this year's game continues with the unveiling of the stars that will be ranked 10-1

Cristiano Ronaldo has been named the highest-rated player in FIFA 18 as EA Sports completed their unveiling of the top 100 stars in this year's game on Monday.

After releasing the list of players ranked 20-11 on Sunday, the makers of the world's most popular football game have completed their countdown by awarding Ronaldo a 94 overall rating.

That means the Real Madrid star keeps the same rating from last year and pips Barcelona forward Lionel Messi, who is rated 93 overall, to top spot.

You can check out the complete list of the top 100 players in FIFA 18 on our dedicated page.

Below is the full rundown of the players ranked between 10-1 and their stats as they will be seen on Ultimate Team when FIFA 18 hits the shelves on September 29.


10. GONZALO HIGUAIN | Juventus


Gonzalo Higuain FIFA 18

Higuain scored another 32 goals in all competitions in his first season with Juventus and has been upgraded by a point, from 89 to 90 overall.


9. TONI KROOS | Real Madrid


Toni Kroos FIFA 18

Kroos gets a two-point upgrade after proving instrumental once again in Real Madrid's latest Champions League triumph and remains one of the best passers in the game.


8. EDEN HAZARD | Chelsea


Eden Hazard FIFA 18

Hazard's one-point upgrade to 90 overall and entry into the top 10 sees him take the title of best player in the Premier League from Zlatan Ibrahimovic.


7. SERGIO RAMOS | Real Madrid


Sergio Ramos FIFA 18

Real Madrid icon Ramos is up a point to 90 overall and overtakes Bayern Munich's Jerome Boateng to be named FIFA 18's best defender.


6. ROBERT LEWANDOWSKI | Bayern Munich


Robert Lewandowski FIFA 18

The goals continue to flow for Lewandowski. He netted 43 in 47 games last season and is boosted by one point, retaining his status as the second-best pure centre forward on FIFA.


5. MANUEL NEUER | Bayern Munich


Manuel Neuer FIFA 18

Neuer keeps his 92 rating and remains unmatched among goalkeepers, with David de Gea, his closest challenger, still two points behind him.


4. LUIS SUAREZ | Barcelona


Luis Suarez FIFA 18

Despite not being quite as prolific last season as he was in a sensational 2015-16, Suarez remains FIFA's top striker at 92 overall - though Neymar has jumped above him.


3. NEYMAR | PSG


Neymar FIFA 18

Neymar keeps his 92 rating and with 92 pace and five-star weak foot and skill moves attributes to boot, he should be one of the most unplayable forwards in the game.


2. LIONEL MESSI | Barcelona


Lionel Messi FIFA 18

It's second place once again for Messi. He keeps his 93 overall rating to stay clear of Neymar and Suarez, but has not wrested the top honour from this year's cover star.
