Borussia Dortmund star Erling Haaland was stunned to learn that he is three ratings short of Paris Saint-Germain’s Kylian Mbappe in FIFA 22.
Haaland’s card has been increased from 84 to 88 for this year’s game.
But that’s still three ratings below Mbappe’s 91-rated card, something Haaland was shocked when he found out.
Dortmund teammate and England international Judd Bellingham was on hand to help with the grand performance, and asked if the 21-year-old was happy with the card.
Haaland replied: “Not bad yes.”
Bellingham then told the forward that he was rated lower than both Mbappe and Robert Lewandowski.
And Haaland said: “No comment.”
The Norwegian international feels that his card should have better features, his speed and physicality aside.

He added: “For me, the pace and the physical I think should be in the 90s.
“Come on in form today… don’t you think I deserve it?”

To which Bellingham replied: “I very much think you deserve it my friend.”
The forward is likely to make it to the Team of the Week multiple times this season if he continues his red hot form.
He has already scored seven league goals and provided four assists in just five matches.
And if he continues his form in all competitions, he could receive several upgrades, especially if he plays well in the Champions League.
He received eight advanced special cards in last year’s FIFA 21.
Haaland may not be entirely happy with his FIFA card, but FUT fans certainly are.
His card is one of the most popular and reasonably priced players in the FUT market thanks to his rating, certainly more obtainable than Mbappe, which is worth over 1.2m coins across all gaming platforms.
Haaland is not the only high profile football star to express his displeasure over his ratings or statistics.
Several Liverpool players have done the same, including Virgil van Dijk, Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Jordan Henderson, who have all received downgrades.
