Cristiano Ronaldo is widely regarded as one of the best footballers to ever play the game. Indeed, his record of goals, trophies and individual accolades confirm his standing in the pantheon of the sport's stars. He is still considered one of the top players around and EA Sports has revealed his rating on FIFA 23 ahead of the game's official release date on September 30.
Once a cover star of the game with the highest rating, Ronaldo's virtual avatar has undergone some changes in the game in recent years since departing Real Madrid, but he has endured as an elite-level attacker.
So what is Ronaldo's FIFA 23 rating? GOAL takes a look at the breakdown plus his rating history.
What is Cristiano Ronaldo's FIFA 23 rating?
Ronaldo has an overall rating of 90 on FIFA 23. In what is perhaps a reflection of real-world development, his rating has dropped by one point from FIFA 22, in which he boasted a rating of 91.
With a rating of 90, Ronaldo sits just below five players who are deemed the best in the game with ratings of 91. They are: Karim Benzema, Robert Lewandowski, Kylian Mbappe, Kevin De Bruyne and Lionel Messi.
While Ronaldo's rating has dropped, he remains one of the top players on the game, with his ability reflected in a more detailed breakdown of his ratings. For example, his pace is 81, while shooting ability is 92 and dribbling is 85.
