Erling Haaland’s best FIFA 23 ratings
Haaland boasts an overall rating of 89 in the latest edition, meaning he achieves another career-high score as he has done yearly since his professional career began.
Having first appeared in FIFA 17, his ascent has been as swift as his regularity in finding the back of the net.
It is pertinent to note that the youngster is only a few points behind the best players in FIFA 23 – Kylian Mbappe, Kevin De Bruyne, Lionel Messi, Robert Lewandowski and Karim Benzema, who are the game’s top-ranked stars with 91.
Haaland is fast on the rise and he already has a three-star skill moves rating and a four-star for international reputation.
The Norwegian’s stats are even more impressive when you consider he has a 94 potential rating, as a striker, Haaland’s 91-rated shooting is undeniably his best asset which is notably higher than both Messi and Mbappe.
He is an avid runner with 89 pace, but the Man City man has room for improvement in terms of his passing which is currently rated at just 65. Nevertheless, the 21-year-old’s highest-rated attributes are unsurprisingly 94 finishing, 94 sprint speed and 94 shot power.
The 2020 Golden Boy is also rated highly with 93 for strength, 91 for positioning, 89 for reactions, 88 for volley and 87 for long shots. Given his high attacking work rate, Haaland offers the complete package in the game to reflect his standing as the best centre-forward in the current generation of footballers.
In FIFA 23, the lanky marksman is valued at €160 million and is on mammoth wages totalling €230k per week.
The Norwegian is capable of breaking all kinds of records in years to come and you can expect even more mind-boggling ratings in upcoming editions of FIFA.
