The start of the new football season means the latest generation of football video games aren’t far off. FIFA 21 is the 28th instalment in the legendary FIFA series, is the mother of all of them, and it’s coming out very soon.
PSG and France poster boy Kylian Mbappe is the cover star, and to nobody’s surprise, he’s one of the highest-rated players in the game with an overall rating of 90 – level with Liverpool foursome Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane, Virgil van Dijk and Alisson.
