Both these legends find their names on this team

Right Winger: Luis Figo (97)

Yet another Real Madrid player from FIFA 02 finds his name on this team. Luis Figo was rated 97 in the game, and was quite simply the best, both in the game as well as in reality. Los Blancos comprised a number of Galacticos and Figo headed the bunch.

Madrid had endured a successful season, making the semi-finals of the Champions League and winning the league title. Figo’s arrival from Barcelona certainly helped them as he scored nine league goals in 32 appearances in the 2000-01 season.

Centre Midfield: Matteo Brighi (97)

The most surprising inclusion in this team but the fact is, in FIFA 03, Matteo Brighi was rated 97 thus becoming the highest rated central midfielder in the history of the game. Now, you might be forgiven for not knowing who Brighi is, but at one time he was one of the hottest prospects in the world.

The player had just won the Serie A young player of the year award, and hence, EA decided to give him such a high rating. In time, though, it proved to be one of the biggest blunders EA has ever made.

Centre Midfield: Zinedine Zidane (96)

FIFA 05 saw most of the players in the game receiving a massive boost in their ratings. Although Real Madrid had a very average season in the 2003-04 campaign as they finished fourth in the Spanish top division, Zinedine Zidane became the highest rated midfielder in the game with a rating of 96.

Yes, his team failed to secure any trophy in the season but the Frenchman’s individual performance was top notch as usual. He scored six goals in the league that season.

Left Winger: Cristiano Ronaldo (94)

The only player from the current generation to make this eleven, Cristiano Ronaldo sneaks in by virtue of his rating in the latest instalment of the FIFA franchise. FIFA 17 saw the Portuguese dismantle fierce rival Lionel Messi from the top of the ratings, as he earned a rating of 94.

Coming off the back of his most successful season in which he led Real Madrid to the Champions League title and his national side to Euro Cup glory, Ronaldo received a well-deserved boost from his ratings in FIFA 16.
