FIFA 14: 5 Players Who Deserve A Higher Rating

FIFACOVER There's football back on our television screens this weekend and that can only mean one thing - we're edging ever closer to the release date of Electronic Art's FIFA 14. The ultra-popular football franchise returns with its 20th iteration on September 24th and it's fair to say we're all just a little bit excited. The predecessor in the series, FIFA 13, continues to sell strongly in the UK charts, ranking in third place across all platforms back in April, a whole six months after its release. Proof then that its lure is still irresistible to gamers and but one reason why the EA venture has been running since late 1993. But a lot has changed since FIFA 13 hit the shelves, almost a year ago. Some players have excelled for their clubs in the season that has followed, while others have floundered. (Yes, Fernando Torres, we're talking about you). And it is these performances that will reflect each player's rating on FIFA 14 next month, and long-term fans of the series will tell you these ratings are nearly always a bone of contention. Here, we take a look at 5 players who enjoyed successful campaigns last season, and deserve a higher rating than they were given in FIFA 13. Click "Next" to begin.
