Borussia Dortmund's Jude Bellingham gets huge rating upgrade in FIFA 22

By Nathan Bliss & Lewis Barton

With EA Sports' FIFA 22 set to be released on October 1, 2021, the rating of Borussia Dortmund starboy Jude Bellingham has been leaked this morning, adding to the anticipation ahead the game's release.

With under a month until games release, EA Sports are yet to announce any ratings for FIFA 22 apart from the newest additions to FIFA 22 Ultimate Team, FUT heroes, with former Premier League club heroes Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Tim Cahill and Robbie Keane all having their ratings outed over the last couple of days.

Bellingham was today unveiled as an official ambassador for FIFA 22 on his Instagram, and whilst announcing his new role with EA Sports, the England international also revealed his FIFA Ultimate Team Card for FIFA 22 on his Instagram Story with a humongous upgrade.

On his Instagram story, Bellingham uploaded a short video with his FUT 22 card and images of himself with the caption " Up by 10! Not bad, @EASPORTSFIFA."

Bellingham's +10 upgrade on his overall rating has been massively deserved after his stellar first season for Dortmund, where he also earned himself a call-up to the England EURO 2020 squad at just 17 years old.

The 18-year-old's biggest stat upgrade was his defending which increased by 20 from 55 to 75. He also received a +11 in his physical stat, a +9 in his passing, a +7 in his dribbling and a +4 increase in his shooting.

Despite his gigantic upgrade, the midfielders pace stat dropped from 77 to 75, the only decrease on his card.

Paris Saint-Germain forward Kylian Mbappe's rating was also leaked earlier this morning on the Frenchman's Instagram story, with the FIFA 22 cover star receiving an upgraded 91 rated card in FIFA 22, making the 22-year-old undoubtedly one of the highest-rated players in FIFA.
