The release of EA SPORTS' FIFA 18 is just around the corner, and as anticipation for the latest edition of the popular video game franchise grows, NYCFC is now officially a part of the hype.
The full list of NYCFC's FIFA 18player ratings have been revealed, and perhaps unsurprisingly, David Villa leads the way. Clocking in at an 82 overall rating, Villa possesses an 86 finishing rating, 85 ball control rating, 83 dribbling rating, and 81 shot power rating, among other highlights. He's as much of a stud in the digital world as he is in the real world.
Of course, the Maestro is still near the top of the list, as well. Andrea Pirlo's 92 curve, 91 crossing, 88 short passing, and 87 long passing make him a distributive juggernaut, and his rating of 93 free kick accuracy make him a set-piece sniper.
REWIND: Hot Times in Houston
Elsewhere in the midfield, Alexander Ring comes into FIFA 18 as an extremely dynamic midfielder whose strengths are pretty much everything. Ring's key passing, physical, defensive, and shooting attributes are all comfortably in the 70s, making him a worthy metronome in defensive midfield.
Last but not least, Tommy Mac, who has a history of scoring golazos, comes into FIFA 18 with a 77 long-shot rating, 76 curve, and 74 shot power. Perhaps a tad underrated, but not a bad place to start for The Mac.

Catch all the lads do their best to live up to their ratings in real life on September 23rd, when they take on the Houston Dynamo at Pratt & Whitney Stadium in East Hartford, CT.
