These updated FIFA 23 World Cup stats will take effect on Friday, November 18 at 6PM GMT, and will apply purely to Kick-Off or Tournament matches in the separate World Cup mode. Unfortunately, they won’t apply to Ultimate Team, which will keep the player ratings announced at the beginning of the year.

The new ratings are based on each player’s performance on the international stage rather than club football, and vary drastically from their usual stats. They will also be adjusted throughout the course of the World Cup depending on how they play in Qatar.

Check out the top 30 FIFA 23 World Cup player ratings below:
