Having already discussed about the best young players in the game, we now look at the top 10 American players in FIFA 15 after the impressive display they put up in the recently concluded FIFA World Cup.
#10 Jozy Altidore - Sunderland (England)
The list starts off with a striker who plies his trade in the English Premier League for Sunderland. The 24 year old is rated 74 in FIFA 15 and has already appeared 71 times for the national team, scoring 23 goals in total.
#9 Aron Jhannsson - AZ (The Netherlands)
Another striker and he is playing in the Netherlands for AZ. The 23 year old youngster has already scored 20 times for his club and has made 9 appearances for the national side having scored twice so far.
#8 Omar Gonzalez - LA Galaxy (United States)
First representation from the MLS on this list. LA Galaxy’s reliable Centre back is rated 74 in FIFA 15 and is 25 years old. Can prove to be a good acquisition for a mid table club which doesn’t have the luxury of spending big on it’s transfer targets. He has played for the United States 23 times.
#7 Kyle Beckerman - Real Salt Lake (United States)
He had a decent outing in the World Cup in Brazil and this experienced central midfielder is rated 74 in the game. Since he is already 32 years old, he may not improve further in career mode and may start declining pretty soon. He plays for Real Salt Lake.
#6 Nick Rimando - Real Salt Lake (United States)
Another player from Real Salt Lake follows up. Unfortunately for Nick Rimando, he has Tim Howard to fight it out with for the first choice stopper spot in the national team. The 35 year old veteran is rated 74 in the game and has played only 15 times in his 12 year long international career
#5 Jermaine Jones - New England Revolution (United States)
New England Revolution’s Jermaine Jones previously represented Germany in a few friendlies, but then the lack of opportunities meant that he finally started playing for the United States. The 32 year old has played 46 times for USA scoring thrice. He is rated 77.
#4 Brad Guzan - Aston Villa (England)
Another American keeper who hasn’t had his chance because of Tim Howard. But like Howard, Brad also plays in England’s top flight competition for Aston Villa. The 30 year old has made 26 appearances for his country and is rated 78 in the game.
#3 Michael Bradley - Toronto FC (Canada)
The onus is on this 27 year old Central midfielder to carry American football forward. He is one of the three American players who are rated 80 or above in FIFA 15. In 90 national team appearances, Bradley has scored 12 goals and is currently playing for Toronto FC.
#2 Clint Dempsey - Seattle Sounders (United States)
Captain courageous Clint Dempsey is up next at number 2. Without a doubt, Dempsey has been the national team’s go to man and has constantly delivered. He is back in the MLS after a stint with EPL side Tottenham Hotspur. The 31 year old has made more than a 100 appearances and has scored 39 times.
#1 Tim Howard - Everton (England)
The 35 year old veteran goalkeeper from Everton is United States of America’s best rated player in FIFA 15. He put up a fantastic display in the recently concluded World Cup and despite his age, he has shown no signs of slowing down yet.
