When it comes to FIFA 19, it is often an entirely different ball-game, as the approach shifts to player ratings in the game.
Inaccurate and often contentious figures being awarded to numerous players has been a laughing point for years now. However, EA has now taken this in a positive stride and released a satirical video on the topic.
In it, a host of football stars are seen taking the rating issue quite seriously, and the video has gone viral for all the right reasons. But perhaps the funniest reaction was that of the game’s cover star, Cristiano Ronaldo.
The Portuguese superstar saw a change in jersey when he moved to Juventus earlier this summer, causing the entire game’s cover itself to be changed.
This is the second year in a row that Ronaldo has landed himself a spot on the cover, and quite similarly, his overall rating of 94 has remained the same as well. The video goes on to show Ronaldo being unhappy with this, and the forward is repeatedly seen questioning why it isn’t 100.

“Haven’t you been watching what I do? C’mon, change that to 100,” the Portuguese is heard cheekily saying. Further, the clip ends with Ronaldo holding his own player card, the 94 being alongside a scribbled 100.
Of course, this is a stark difference from the actual on-field Ronaldo, who has yet to score a goal at Juventus, 23 shots and all.
Then again, this isn’t the first time that the superstar has seen a bumpy start to his season, and since this is at a new club in a new league, supporters will just have to wait before he starts firing off.
EA has created much hype for the launch of the game, which is all set to be released on September 29, and this video is a must-watch for its banter.
