2. Kylian Mbappé – Paris Saint Germain

One of the world’s best strikers at just 21 years old, Kylian Mbappé gets himself a 90 rated card with 96 pace. To be a World Cup winner and four time French Ligue 1 champion at his age is truly remarkable. The Frenchman has definitely earned his spot as this years cover star for the FIFA 21.

Whether it be the Bundesliga or the Champions league, the 19 year old left-back has embarrassed the defence of Barcelona and dashed through the defenders at Dortmund.

Midway through the season he gained a + 5 rating, making him a 77 rated gold card with 95 pace. This happens to be the exact same rating and pace figure James has been given at the start of FIFA 21.
