England stars Declan Rice and Jack Grealish have responded to the former's rating on FIFA 22 in a hilarious new video on the national team's YouTube channel.
The pair, who have become great friends over the last few years, were impressed by the significant upgrades to Rice's card stats but couldn't help but laugh at the West Ham midfielder's low rating for speed.
"If I'm an 80, then I'll snap this card in half!" Rice remarked before revealing his new FIFA card. "Genuinely I will RKO or spear it!"
The 22 year old unveiled an 82 rated card, three higher than what he had on the previous version of the game.
"A cheeky little 82, to be fair I'm happy with that," he replied.
"You should be higher than that, surely," Manchester City's new man Grealish quipped, appearing more disappointed about Rice's ratings than the midfielder was.
When asked about his pace rating, Rice was outraged.
"I'm not slow, I'm not slow, that's the thing!" he exclaimed. "81 defence, 79 physical and 74 dribble... mate I'm convinced they (EA Sports) just sit at a computer because they're bored writing a thousand players down and go 'yeah he's a sixty-something, he's a seventy-something... done."
Rice also joked with Grealish at the end of the video about how he was pleased with his appearance on the upcoming game.
"At least I look better on this card than I do in previous years!" he chuckled. "I look like I've seen about 10 ghosts in that (FIFA 17 card) one!"
Grealish was extremely complimentary about Rice throughout the video, describing him as 'one of the best' in his position in the Premier League.
"You know what's mad," the former Aston Villa captain said. "Dec is one of the best holding midfielders in the league yet there's still going to be some people higher-rated than him."
Based on what both players have achieved for club and country in the last few seasons, expect to see Rice and Grealish's ratings skyrocket in the next few editions of the game.
You can play as Rice, Grealish and others in FIFA 22 from Friday 1st October 2021, when the game is released worldwide.
