With EA SPORTS’ FIFA 17 set to launch soon, who do you think might be their top ten rated players in the Hyundai A-League?

Well, here they are from 10-1. Let the banter begin…

10: Matt McKay Brisbane Roar

FIFA rating: 71

Fit, feisty and a tough leader in the middle of the park. Everyone needs a player like McKay to drive them onto glory.

9: Marcello Carrusca Adelaide United

FIFA rating: 71

The Argentine provides the creative spark and quality in behind the strikers. Playmakers like “Cello” can orchestrate so many attacking moves and goals.

8: Fahid Ben Khalfallah Melbourne Victory

FIFA rating: 71

The striker has been a revelation at the Big V. A handy player to have. Can play wide or central and scores regularly.

7: Roly Bonevacia Wellington Phoenix

FIFA rating: 72

The central midfielder has shown he can be creative and score some flashing goals. A key cog in any team’s midfield. Can play as a six, eight or ten.

6: James Troisi Melbourne Victory

FIFA rating: 73

The Asian Cup final hero has a great pedigree and this season will be about re-establishing himself at Victory and in the Socceroos. A classy attacking midifielder.

5: Besart Berisha Melbourne Victory

FIFA rating: 74

Still the forward every team wants (and loves to hate). Fiercely committed and a sure-fire scorer finishing in double digits each season.

4: Tim Cahill Melbourne City

FIFA rating: 74

“Super Tim” scores wherever he goes. And his influence over teams is always positive. A must-have for any A-League team.

3: Bobo Sydney FC

FIFA rating: 75

Huge expectations on the Brazilian. He’s looking good in pre-season at the Sky Blues and we reckon he might score a bagful this season.

2: Diego Castro Perth Glory

FIFA rating: 75

Reigning A-League player of the year, the Spaniard was electric last season. His goals were simply sublime at times.

1: Bruno Fornaroli Melbourne City

FIFA rating: 76

The highest rated player in the A-League – and for good reason. He smashed the Golden Boot last season. Simply one of the greatest imports we’ve seen.
