Fascinating Video Proves EA Sports Have Made A Mistake With Erling Haaland's FIFA 21 Rating

Fascinating Video Proves EA Sports Have Made A Mistake With Erling Haaland's FIFA 21 Rating

Erling Haaland is one of the most improved players in FIFA 21 - but many fans think his pace still isn't high enough.

The Norwegian striker enjoyed a breakout season last campaign and EA Sports have bumped his rating up massively.

He started FIFA 20 as a 73-rated silver card, but will begin FIFA 21 as an 84-rated gold card.

However, one stat fans think is still too low is his 84 pace.

Haaland has seen his shooting go up by a whopping 17 points but his pace only by four.

While 84 pace is nothing to scoff at, it seems a tad underwhelming for a player who has shown breathtaking speed this year.

One key instance came in the Champions League against Paris Saint-Germain, when the 20-year-old broke on the counter and covered the whole pitch inside ten seconds.

He was desperate to get on the scoresheet and stormed forward to the surprise of everybody watching.

It was revealed following the game that Haaland had covered 60 metres in just 6.64 seconds, a pace that would have put him in the World Indoor Championship 60m final in 2018.

That certainly sounds like a player who deserves higher than 84 pace, but he'd likely be the most overpowered player on the game if rated any higher.

Elsewhere, Dortmund teammate Jadon Sancho has had his pace decreased to 83 while Bayern Munich star Serge Gnabry has seen his pace drop from 90 to 82.

It means that both wingers are slower than Lazio striker Ciro Immobile, who has 84 pace.

One player who has called out EA Sports for his low pace stat is Manchester City defender Aymeric Laporte.

The Frenchman took to Twitter and Instagram to let fans know he wasn't impressed with having only 63 pace.
