Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo no longer the most 'popular' EA FC 24 card, the top two may surprise you.

Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo are no longer among the most popular cards on EA Sports FC 24 ahead of the game's official release.

EA FC 24 is slated for a worldwide release on September 29 but those who have pre-ordered the Ultimate Edition can get access a week earlier.

A good chunk of the ratings and cards on the game have been doing the rounds, with Messi and Ronaldo no longer the two highest-rated players as they enter their final playing years outside of Europe with Inter Miami and Al Nassr respectively.

Over on the Futbin site, fans are able to look at the most and least popular cards as fans get excited for the launch of the Ultimate Team web app.

However, Messi and Ronaldo, who have both been cover stars on the game, are not in the top five. Seven-time Ballon d'Or winner Messi is in 12th, while long-time rival Ronaldo, now rated 86, has had to settle for 25th spot.

Kylian Mbappe leads the way but a huge surprise comes in second place as it is occupied by Aston Villa women's star Alisha Lehmann.

Female players are including in Ultimate Team for the first team this year and Lehmann, who has endorsement deals with Prime, EA Sports, Boohoo and Adidas, is one of the most marketable around.

Liverpool striker Darwin Nunez features in the top five, with Jude Bellingham's younger brother Jobe having a bigger fan club than him.

This year's cover star Erling Haaland, Manchester City's 91-rated goal machine, is in tenth spot.

The "hottest UT players" list is definitely a varied one and does included some stars based off their name being an innuendo.

It does, however, give an indication on who could be difficult to snipe when the FUT web app is live and who could command plenty of coins.

Here is the list in full:
