What's the story?

It's been a good spell for football fanatics ever since the launch of FIFA Mobile in October 2016. FIFA Mobile that was designed specifically for the benefits of on the go gaming, has found its way into the hearts of Microsoft, Android, and iOS users worldwide. Launched by EA, the game comes replete with features that will guarantee the user a smooth FIFA experience with an entirely new and interesting level of mobile gaming.

One of the most interesting aspects of the game that keeps its users glued is the change in various rankings based on each player's performance. In the recent list of the best free kick takers, Iceland's Gylfi Sigurdsson is seen to overtake the two kings of free kicks, Argentina's Lionel Messi and Portugal's Cristiano Ronaldo; the Everton star has a 112 free kick rating, while Messi's rating is 110 and Ronaldo's 107.

In case you didn't know

The FC Barcelona forward and the Real Madrid forward have often been pitched against each other, both competing for the top spot of best player in the world. Messi and Ronaldo have always competed for the most coveted Ballon d'Or award and it is no surprise that their competition against each other has found its way to FIFA Mobile as well.

The heart of the matter

According to the ratings on FUThead.com, Lionel Messi has seen to soar above Cristiano Ronaldo with his total number of free kicks. The Argentinian's free kick attribute rating stands at 110, while Ronaldo's stands at 107. Both these players, though occupying the 99th spot, can be seen differentiated by their difference in free kick attributes.

Messi is surpassed by Andrea Pirlo of New York City FC who claims the first position with 126 free kick rating and Everton's Sigurdsson having 112. Messi has a brilliant set of stats with a 99 attacker rating and a 93 creator rating. With a defender rating of 57, his total stats stand at a whopping 1947, making him an untradeable player. Owing to his great performance, the Barcelona forward has earned himself a place in the Ultimate FIFA Mobile TOTS.

What's next?

FIFA fans have more reason to rejoice with the upcoming release of FIFA 18. The much-awaited game is all set to make its arrival on September 29th.

Author's take

The battle of superiority between both the leading players of the world is something that will go on for a long period of time. Therefore, with both players doing their best in every match, the constant neck to neck change in ratings is a definite source of interest.
