The FIFA 19 demo goes live on Thursday, ahead of the full release date on September 28. On Wednesday morning, the cream of the crop was revealed, with the final 10 names finally becoming public.

In fact, the three top players are exactly the same as previous year, with Neymar rated the third best player on the game, behind former team-mate Leo Messi and cover star Cristiano Ronaldo top of the pile.

The Real Madrid midfield has been tipped as a leading Ballon d'Or contender after a stellar performance at the World Cup saw him claim the Golden Ball for the tournament, and he comes in with a rating of 91.

Worldwide colleague Eden Hazard is ranked sixth, also boasting a total of 91, an improvement of one mark from past year, when he was the eighth best player.

Luis Suarez, who was fourth last season, drops down to eighth, while David De Gea is the top-rated keeper - the Manchester United shot-stopper rated ninth overall.

Xherdan Shaqiri insists he remains calm despite struggling to make an impact since his summer move from Stoke City to Liverpool .

Next up, though, is a newcomer in the form of Luka Modric, who was not even in the top 10 players in the previous edition of the game.

While a lot of the players have been awarded the same ratings, the players can be distinguished by more specific ratings for certain attributes.

"Ronaldo beats defenders left and right when attacking, burning them with his 90 Pace and bamboozling them with a 90 Dribbling rating".

Paris Saint-Germain's Brazilian superstar Neymar rounds out the top three and will no doubt be popular on the game thanks to his five-star ratings for both weak foot and skill moves.

Federation Internationale de Football Association 19 is released on 28 September 2018.
