FIFA 22 will be released soon and fans around the world have been discovering who the highest-rated players on this year’s edition are – with one Scotland star making the top 40 players in the game.

The annual FIFA release is the biggest-selling games franchise of all time and the news of player ratings often sparks controversy as fans squabble on social media over who they think is best.

Robertson's FIFA 22 card

Unsurprisingly, Lionel Messi reclaimed his number one spot in the FIFA 22 player ratings list as he was once again the only player with an overall 93 rating, with Bayern Munich’s Robert Lewandowski the second-highest rated player at 92 overall and Cristiano Ronaldo one point further back.

However, with the top 100 players confirmed by publishers EA, only Liverpool star Andy Robertson has made the cut, sitting 34th overall.

With no Kieran Tierney, Scott McTominay or Billy Gilmour anywhere to be seen in the top 100, we can only assume those responsible for rating the players feel Robertson is head and shoulders above his international teammates.

All 12 Scottish Premiership sides will again feature in the game, with Hearts and Dundee making their return to the franchise after securing promotion last season, while Kilmarnock drop out for the first time since the Scottish leagues were added for FIFA ’96.
