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.

Premier League stars Sergio Aguero  – who scooped up the domestic treble with Manchester City – and Harry Kane (who is the highest-rated English player) retain their 89 rating. They join Antoine GriezmannRobert Lewandowski, Kylian Mbappe and Luis Suarez.

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.

Manchester City and England winger Raheem Sterling is on an 88 rating, up from 85, in a reflection of his stunning season with the Premier League's defending champions. The likes of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Edinson Cavani and Sadio Mane also sit on 88, with Mane enjoying a ratings increase from last year's overall of 86.

They are followed by Karim Benzema, who experienced an uncharacteristic trophyless season at Real Madrid, but had his previous rating of 86 increase to 87. Tottenham's Son Heung-min, who suffered a Champions League final blow to Liverpool, Napoli duo Lorenzo Insigne and Dries Martens as well as Bernardo Silva are also on 87.

Barcelona flop Philippe Coutinho has a rating of 86, joining Brazil team-mate Roberto Firmino, Angel Di Maria, Ciro Immobile, Alexandre Lacazette and Leroy Sane.

Romelu Lukaku, who completed a fresh transfer from Manchester United to Inter in the summer, has an 85 rating, alongside new PSG striker Mauro Icardi and AC Milan star Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
