Goalkeeper Bartosz Bialkowski is Ipswich Town’s highest-rated player on the brand-new FIFA 18 video game.

The latest edition of the EA Sports game will be released worldwide on Friday, September 29, with Town’s 2017-18 squad included.

Goalkeepers like Bialkowski are rated on six shot-stopping attributes – diving, reflexes, handling, speed, kicking and positioning and the Polish custodian gets a rating of 73.

Bialkowski joined the Blues from Notts County in the summer of 2014 and has gone on to make 102 appearances, being the club’s Player of the Year for the last two seasons and establishing himself as Mick McCarthy’s first-choice between the sticks.

Town’s best outfield player, according to the game, is David McGoldrick, who has a rating of 72, having been judged on his pace, dribbling, shooting, defending, passing and physicality.

McGoldrick’s best attribute according to the game is his dribbling, the former Nottingham Forest man coming out with a score of 75, while he has a 70 rating for his shooting.

He is followed closely by Blues skipper Luke Chambers and fellow centre-back Tommy Smith, who both come in with scores of 71, having been judged on the same six attributes.

Town’s summer signings have all been rated too, with Joe Garner and Emyr Huws joining Cole Skuse and Adam Webster with a rating of 70, Tom Adeyemi, Dominic Iorfa and Martyn Waghorn scoring 69 and Jordan Spence scoring 68

The top-ranked player on the whole game is Cristiano Ronaldo with a rating of 94, followed Lionel Messi (93) and Neymar (92)

Chelsea’s Eden Hazard is ranked as the Premier League’s best player, with Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea second and Arsenal’s Alexis Sanchez third.

What do you think? Are the ratings right?
