Erling Haaland's Rating Change Since FIFA 18 Shows Incredible Transformation

Erling Haaland’s rise from unknown entity to global superstar has happened at a rapid pace and his FIFA rating over the years is a testament to just that. 

From the small Norweigan town of Bryne with a population of a mere 12,202 to performing in front of a 25,000-strong Dortmund ‘Yellow Wall’, Haaland has quickly affirmed himself as one of the most sought-after players in world football. 

Haaland’s exceptional form has not gone unnoticed at EA Sports, either, with the Borussia Dortmund talisman receiving huge upgrades on FIFA over the years.

So far, during his short and illustrious career, the 21-year-old forward - widely regarded as one of the best strikers in the world - has scored a staggering 113 goals for both club and country. 

When delving into the statistics, by the time Lionel Messi was 21, the Argentine had only scored 51 goals, while Cristiano Ronaldo had only found the back of the net 36 times - and that should tell you all you need to know.       

On FIFA 18, Haaland was a fresh-faced 17-year-old at Molde FK and was practically an unusable player on the game, with a woeful overall rating of just 58.

However, after a stellar campaign for the Norwegian outfit, the forward earned a move to the Austrian Bundesliga with Red Bull Salzburg


Haaland’s move saw his overall boosted to 68, but after finding the back of the net an impressive 17 times inside 16 appearances, his rating went through the roof again after Dortmund came calling for the young prodigy.

Since his blockbuster move to the German giants, Haaland has since his FIFA rating soar after earning multiple upgrades on the game since his induction four years ago.

Now rated an overall of 88, Haaland has seen his pace, shooting and physical stats shoot through the roof, with the star now rated one of the best players to use on the game.

Should Haaland have a brilliant 2021/22 season with Dortmund, you can expect him to receive another boost to his overall rating in FIFA 23, however, he may very well be at a different club by then.
