EA SPORTS FIFA 22 approaches! With an Oct. 1 global launch, EA SPORTS has been dropping updates on the much talked about element of player ratings. Who's the fastest? Who are the top defenders?

Today, EA launched the ratings for all MLS players and there's a slew of Portland Timbers players among the top rated in the league. The entire list of all MLS players can be found here but read on for some highlighted Timbers in the game.

Overall, Portland has four Gold rated player cards: Sebastián Blanco (77), Diego Valeri (77), and brothers Diego and Yimmi Chara (both 75). With Blanco and Valeri, the Timbers are the only team in MLS to have two in the top 10 of attacking midfielders.


Meanwhile, Yimmi Chara's pace is a blistering 91 – fourth highest rated in the league – while midfielder Andy Polo is listed as a 90. And again, those two make Portland the only team with a pair in the top 10 of the Pace category.


On the defensive side, Claudio Bravo breaks the top 10 for overall defenders with a 73 rating while Larrys Mabiala is in the top 10 for Physical with a stout 84.


Goalkeeper Steve Clark gets an overall rating of 72 which puts him in the top list as well.


Can't wait until Oct. 1 for the game? You can pre-order a copy for Sept. 27 here.
