From FIFA 04 to FIFA 20: an infographic shows the evolution in the votes of the strongest players


DataGrapha’s YouTube channel manager has created a splendid animated infographic that shows the evolution of the ranking of the best players in the world, highlighting the changes made every year by Electronic Arts in the choice of the values ​​of the FIFA series players.

Starting from the FIFA Football 04 ratings to reach the values ​​of the best FIFA 20 players, the movie produced by YouTuber offers football fans an overview of the athletes who have written the most important pages of this sport since 2003 to the present.

The data emerged from this infographic are different: the first, and perhaps the most obvious, is represented by the first position of Lionel Messi maintained for ten times in the last eleven years, with the inevitable presence of Cristiano Ronaldo and Neymar Jr on the podium of the strongest players on the planet in the last four years.

With regard to the analysis of the remaining votes cast in the “fluid classification” of the Top30 of FIFA from the 04 edition to the 20, it is really impossible to express a synthetic judgment on the athletes who have alternated in this ranking. Browsing through the different tabs in the video, we can indeed notice the rise and fall of stars of the caliber of Ronaldo (the Phenomenon), but also of Rooney, Iniesta, Kaka, Ibrahimovic, Pirlo, Zidane, Henry, Ribery, Kahn, Terry , Buffon, Trezeguet, Materazzi and many others.
