Argentina and Barcelona superstar Messi was named the best footballer in the world in FIFA 20 with his 94 rating that beats Ronaldo, who was given a score of 93. In the last edition, the two were given the same rating of 94, so the Portugal international's overall rating has been downgraded to 93 – though he still comes out top in pace and shooting.

Ronaldo won't be competing with Juventus in the new edition of FIFA, however, due to an exclusive naming rights deal the Serie A giants have with Konami – so he is instead registered with Piemonte Calcio.

Neymar has been given 92 rating for the fourth year in a row, trailing behind Messi and Ronaldo once again. New Real Madrid arrival Eden Hazard is fourth with a rating of 91, besting Liverpool and Egypt forward Mohamed Salah, who has risen up the ranks to 90 following his Champions League victory with the Reds.

The Uruguay and Barcelona striker has been downgraded from his 91 rating last year to 89, while Mbappe has been upgraded from 87. Meanwhile, Bayern's Lewandowski has dipped slightly in his current 89 rating after his 90 overall rating.
