The wait for FIFA 21 is almost over. EA Sports annual game is set to be released on Oct. 6. With the released date drawing near, the top 15 women’s soccer players in the game were announced. There were four United States Women’s National Team players who made the top 15. Here’s who ended up making the list.
Megan Rapinoe – 93 overall
Rapinoe takes the top spot in the overall ratings in FIFA 21. She was rated higher than players such as Vivianne Miedema, Wendie Renard, and Samantha Kerr. The USWNT’s star player was named the best women’s soccer player in 2019 and played a key role in the World Cup triumph for the U.S. As a result, it’s no surprise to see FIFA rate her as the top player in the game. Rapinoe was rated at 93 overall in FIFA 20 as well.
