France are one of the favourites to win the World Cup and their impressive squad ratings show why.

Griezmann’s amazing season has earned him the highest ranking in the side.

The Atletico man has received an upgrade to 89 and has also had his position changed from an ST to a CF.


Mbappe has received an upgrade from his normal 83 rating and his pace of 93 will terrify defences in the new World Cup update.


N’golo Kante has kept his rating of 88 from his winter upgrade.

The Chelsea man tops Paul Pogba as the highest rated French midfielder.


The Man United man has received a downgrade from 87 to 86, which reflects his poor form for United.

Despite scoring 14 league goals for Arsenal this season, Alexandre Lacazette has harshly received a downgrade from his normal rating of 85.


The France ratings have been dropped ahead of a revised Ultimate Team mode which will let you build your dream World Cup team, as well as see the introduction of World Cup Icons.
