The Ultimate Edition of FIFA 23 is out tomorrow, and developer EA Sports has revealed who its top-rated player is ahead of release.
However, while fans were expecting popular players like cover star Kylian Mbappé, Lionel Messi, Karim Benzema or Kevin De Bruyne, they were surprised when they found out who took first place.
These men are all excellent footballers and their 91 rating in FIFA 23 shows how great they are at the sport.
But one player is even higher with a rating of 92.
Barcelona midfielder Alexia Putellas has taken the top spot as the best female player in the world.
She is also the captain of the Spanish national team, where she enjoys great success.
Putellas certainly deserves the title of FIFA 23’s best player.
Last year she won the Ballon d’Or Feminin, Best FIFA Player, and UEFA Female Player of the Year, the only person to win all three in the same year.
A number of players can also take on Mbappé and Co with a player rating of 91.
FIFA cover star Sam Kerr has captained the Australia national team since 2019.
She is also Chelsea’s star forward and has earned her a rating of 91.
In France, not only Mbappé and Benzema are at the top, but also two players.
France national team captain Wendie Renard and Club Lyon are rated 91.
Another player for Lyon, Ada Hegerberg, also managed to snag a 91 rating.
Although fewer female players have been rated 90+ than their male counterparts this year, more women are still occupying the top spots.
Four other players received a 90 rating, including former FIFA 15 cover star Alex Morgan.
Unfortunately, you cannot recruit these players for your FIFA Ultimate Team (FUT) as EA Sports has not included women in the card packs.
However, you can play her in career mode and in the upcoming Women’s World Cup.
