The EA Sports video game franchise plans to expand with FIFA 16, set for a release of September 22nd. Six Philadelphia Union players have had their ratings released two weeks prior to the arrival of the game. The entire Seattle Sounders squad ratings have been released due to the team being featured in the FIFA 16 demo.
The top six players from every other MLS side were also revealed, and teams such as NYCFC and LA Galaxy both dominated FIFA 16 player rankings, receiving four and three top 15 nods, respectively. The Galaxy had the best overall MLS player rating with Steven Gerrard at a solid 84, which was 2 points higher than his previous rating with Liverpool in FIFA 15.
The highest-rated player for the Union is Tranquillo Barnetta, who ranked 24th among MLS players. Here are the six player ratings released for the Philadelphia Union players so far:
Tranquillo Barnetta: 76 (previously 77)
Maurice Edu: 74 (previously 71)
Cristian Maidana: 73 (previously 69)
Vincent Nogueira: 73 (previously 72)
Steven Vitoria: 70 (previously 72)
Sebastien Le Toux: 70 (previously 67)
Cristian Maidana, Vincent Nogueira, and Sebastien Le Toux have all earned upgrades for their play in the last year. Steven Vitoria's time with the Union hurt his rating due to the injuries he sustained and his lack of form. We can expect the rest of the Philadelphia Union's ratings within the next two weeks before the game's full release.
