In my opinion and I seen Cruyf, Gerd Müller, Maradona, Zidane, Alessandro Delpiero, Paolo Rossi, among others, and my favorite Roberto Baggio which is under valuated also by EA , but truth te be told Messi is another class in term of individual footballer. I lived in their times when FiFA was not even invented yet and when it came was arcadish in 90s.
Messi in EA should have better score far better current overhyped French players by EA,
If FIFA want to be at last serious and not the arcade game that is, favoring English league/players, aimed at casual player, political correct bs, and pokemon/ casino card that favors mostly in game purchases, and heavy focused marketing, on top of 60 dollars for the base, at last should take in consideration how it rates players.
Messi has done in his youth far much better in term of individual skills in youth age and even now for the age he has compared to past legends, than any French current overhyped players[ where most relay on speed which was always the case of France from latte 90's than they disappear after couple of years ] and the current french players should not even be compared to his individual level.
