FIFA 18: EA Sports upgraded the Rest of World ratings and it is all about the Brazilians

There's a host of big names in FIFA 18's latest ratings upgrade

We’ve had the ratings refresh for Europe, now it’s time for the rest of the world.

EA Sports recently confirmed that they would be permanently changing players’ ratings to reflect real-life form.

So the question we immediately asked ourselves was, what would Emannuel Adebayor move to?

We’re joking of course.

The one player we really wanted to know about was the first man to reach 30 goals in Europe’s top seven leagues.

That’s right it’s Benfica’s Brazilian front man Jonas, who as been granted a one point rise from 83 to 84 for his amazing effort this season – not bad for a 33-year-old.

Although Brazil manager Tite has already named over half of his squad for the World it seems the lesser-known Brazilians are not giving up.

Fenerbache’s Giuliano moved up two points to 83, while Alex Telles who turns out as left back for Port moved from 80-82.

Another man who is making waves in Turkey is Anderson Talisca – the 24-year-old midfielder upped his rating from 79 to 81 and at his age we could be seeing a lot higher in FIFAs to come.



You might be wondering how ex-Premier League legend Adebayor is getting on at Medipol Basaksehir?

Well the fact EA have granted him a one-point increase suggests it’s not all bad.

Another player who you will remember, Ryan Babel saw his skill rating move up to 78 from 75 in a plus three jump.


Keep in mind folks, that any change in rating will affect the player’s price – ultimately causing instability in the market. Players who see their ratings slashed will likely fall in price, while those with increased scores will see their values soar.
