When the FIFA ratings come out for that year's game you can bet your bottom dollar that people are going to lose their mind over one thing or another. On this occasion we're with everyone!

Whether you're a football fan or on many occasions a football player there's a very good chance that you'll have something to say about the ratings a player is given on the latest FIFA game.

In the last few years we've seen players take to social media about their rating on the up coming edition of the game, and in some cases rightly so.

We all want to know which players are the best on the game without having to scroll through them all so it's lucky that EA tend to provide us all with lists.

The thing is despite the moaning the ratings are usually pretty spot on but the reveal of all the five star skilled players on the latest version of the game confirms it's 'usually' and not 'always'.

Aiden McGeady somehow made the list and yet missing is none other than Lionel Messi!
