Some people believe that the time of Messi and Ronaldo is almost over, as there are other frontmen for the upcoming FIFA 21. The next iteration of the insanely-popular football simulation series will be showcasing the French striker and world champion Kylian Mbappé as the cover star.
FIFA 21 arrives on October 6 for PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and Windows PC. The next-generation consoles PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X will also be running the upcoming FIFA game after their arrival in stores from November.
Messi still takes the lead
Although he’s currently 33 years old, Messi is still a beast on the field. Easily among the best footballers of all time, Lionel Messi is the player with the highest dribbling skills in FIFA 21 – having a neat 95 rating in this area. However, we shouldn’t be surprised at all, considering that we’re talking about a footballer who had won 6 Golden Balls, 4 Champions League trophies, 10 championships in La Liga, 6 Spanish Cups, and more.
Beware for Neymar
The Brazilian superstar Neymar can take Messi’s role anytime in FIFA 21, as the striker from Paris Saint Germain has his dribbling skills rated at 94. Eden Hazard (Real Madrid) and Bernardo Silva (Manchester City) are occupying the third position in the list, as both have a 92 rating for their dribbling skills. The cover star of the game, Kylian Mbappé, comes on the fourth position with a 91 rating for its dribbling skills. In the same position as the world champion wonderkid there are Lorenzo Insigne from Napoli, Paulo Dybala from Piemonte Calcio (which is practically Juventus Torino), and the English winger Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund.
We can expect a lot of gameplay improvements from FIFA 21, and they’re all showcased in the video above. FIFA 20 has plenty of flaws in this area, whether we like to face the facts or not.
