EA Sports revealed earlier this month that the 32-year-old Barca captain would be the highest-rated non-inform card in FIFA 20.

And fierce rival Cristiano Ronaldo has dropped from his 94 rating in FIFA 19 to a 93 in FIFA 20.

Messi's 94-rated card boasts 87 pace, 96 dribbling, 92 shooting and 92 passing.

Messi on Monday scooped the Best FIFA Men's Player ahead of Ronaldo and Virgil van Dijk.

The Argentina captain admitted that he was "very happy to receive this award," which was his first major individual award since 2015.

He told FIFA: "Like I always say, though, individual awards are secondary to me because it's the team that counts.

"It's a special night because I'm lucky enough to have my wife here and two of my three children as well.

"To be able to enjoy this moment with them is unique."

FIFA 20 will launch on 27th September in the UK for PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC.
