Here are the top 10 highest-rated Ghanaian players on FIFA 23
The 10 top highest-rated Ghanaian players on the newly-released FIFA 23 video game have been revealed, with Michael Essien leading the pack.
Inaki Williams (81) is the third highest-rated player in the game and Mohammed Kudus is further down in ninth with a rating of 76.
Meanwhile, Ghana’s Black Stars are one of the new national teams added to EA Sports’ FIFA 23 game.
The Black Stars are part of 16 new national teams confirmed to be part of the game’s World Cup mode feature.
The World Cup mode allows gamers to pick teams that have qualified for the Qatar 2022 World Cup as playable nations.
Other African nations that have also been added to the FIFA 23 game are Cameroon, Morocco, Senegal and Tunisia, with Nigeria conspicuously missing.
This is probably because the Super Eagles failed to secure a place at the World Cup after losing to Ghana in the playoffs.

1. Michael Essien – 87
2. Thomas Partey – 84
