The United States men’s national team may be approaching a Golden Generation as far as young talent produced en masse. However, no one told EA Sports.

Yes, it’s that time of the year again where the FIFA video game series releases its latest version and every player in the world receives new virtual attribute ratings to best signify their real life skills.

Despite all the current momentum gained in the real world, the USMNT has only 13 players rated 75 or above. And only one player rated above an 80. Here’s a breakdown of how FIFA 21 rates the current USMNT player pool:
