FIFA 23 fans think it's a 'joke' Neymar and Son Heung-min are the same rating
| Last updated
A number of FIFA 23 fans are furious with EA Sports handing Paris Saint-Germain superstar Neymar and Tottenham Hotspur forward Son Heung-min the same rating.
The publisher revealed their top 23 players for this year's instalment on Monday ahead of the game's full launch on September 30.
Neymar and Son feature, surprisingly being handed 89-rated cards.
Brazil international Neymar was a 91-rated in FIFA 22 but has been downgraded by two points.
It's the first time Neymar has been below a 90 rating since FIFA 16, ending a streak of six consecutive games with the 'One of the world's best' tag in Career Mode.

The news will sting given Neymar's sensational start to the current campaign too.
Under new PSG manager Christophe Galtier, Neymar has scored a whopping 10 goals and registered seven assists in nine games.
Son, meanwhile, has stayed the same rating after winning the Golden Boot and helping Spurs to Champions League qualification last season.
Supporters have reacted to the ratings on social media and they think Neymar deserves to be higher than Son.
One person tweeted: "Son is world class, but getting same rating as Neymar is stupid."
Another said: "This is why FIFA is trash. No way Son has the same rating as Neymar."
A third added: "I'm convinced these ratings get pulled out of a hat."
While someone put: "There's a ridiculous bias against Neymar across the world."
When it comes to their respective clubs, Neymar has Lionel Messi and cover star Kylian Mbappe ahead of him, with those two the joint-highest in the game at 91-rated.
PSG have one more player in the top 23, defender Marquinhos, who is now an 88-rated.
Meanwhile, Spurs striker Harry Kane is also an 89-rated, the same as Son.
