Marco Verratti thought that PSG forward Lionel Messi had been given a 92 speed rating on FIFA 22, but it turned out to by Kylian Mbappe's card instead.
FIFA 22 comes out in less than two weeks and football fans and players alike have been learning about all this year's ratings over the past week.
Some players are already unhappy with how EA Sports have decided to rate them, with Antonio Rudiger particularly annoyed at his pace.
Speed kills on FIFA usually and it's certainly the most controversial rating on this year's version, just ask Kyle Walker, and it led to some confusion for Verratti.
The PSG midfielder had to work out which card belonged to which of his teammates and he was certain one card belonged to Messi, despite the 92 pace, when it was obviously Mbappe's.

Ermmm the 97 pace should have given it away https://t.co/KX4ikNt7lb— Oshoze (@egbaks) September 18, 2021
Messi is very highlight rated on the game but thinking the 34-year-old version of the forward is likely to have that much speed is just madness.
You have to wonder just what pace rating he thinks fellow teammate Mbappe would be on if he thinks Messi is 97!
The six time Ballon d'Or winner is of course the highest rated player on the game once again, although rival Cristiano Ronaldo is no longer in the top two.
His passing is 91 compared to Mbappe's 80, probably the huge giveaway for the Italian midfielder who couldn't tell their cards apart.
Imagine have to tell Messi you only rate his passing at 80!
