Messi Demoted on FIFA 17, Cristiano Ronaldo’s top dog

Messi, who has reigned supreme on the elite game in the past recently took a knock to his stats, going down one point on the new release to 93, despite those of many other players being boosted, Goal writes.


Also, the Argentine maestro is no longer the cover star of the game, having swapped his allegiances to Pro Evolution Soccer 2017, FIFA’s rival, which could explain new power configuration.

This translates into more good news for Ronaldo, whose latest exploits with Real Madrid and Portugal have seen his rating climb to 94, the highest of any player.

Coming behind the obvious top two is Messi’s Barcelona teammate Neymar, who, early this year joined the titans on the podium for the Fifa ballon d’Or award.
