Five League Two Players Who Deserve A Big Upgrade On EA FC 24 – Opinion

EA Sports FC Logo

EA Sports FC 24 is right around the corner and it’s almost that time of year when the official player ratings are released, but which players in League Two deserve an upgrade in the game’s next instalment?

Releasing in September 2023, EA Sports FC 24 is the latest instalment of the FIFA franchise, except this will be the first version of the game without the ‘FIFA’ branding, following the license expiring.

Every year, the games’ player ratings always cause a debate on social media regarding players that have either been rated too highly or haven’t been rated high enough by the bosses at EA Sports. This also includes players that have starred in a particular game but haven’t received the special card to reward it.

In League Two next season, there will be six new teams all hoping to compete for a place in League One. These teams include MK Dons, Accrington Stanley, Forest Green Rovers and Morecambe from the third tier as well as Wrexham and Notts County from the National League.

During the 2022/23 season, we saw plenty of rising stars throughout the division as well as some players who played a starting role for their respective sides but were underrated in FIFA 23 itself. This means that there will be an increased amount of focus around the latest player ratings reveal in September as to which players have received their deserved upgrade, which have stayed the same and which have been downgraded for one reason or another.

With that being said, let’s take a look at five players from League Two that deserve a big upgrade in the game’s next instalment.


Elliot Watt – Salford City

Kicking things off, we have Salford City midfielder Elliot Watt, despite him being rated at 64 in FIFA 23, which is one below becoming a silver card.

The 23-year-old made 52 appearances last season, picking up 16 assists in all competitions. Therefore, based on his impressive midfield performances, I’m expecting Watt to make at least a threerating increase during the next instalment.


Will Swan – Mansfield Town

Moving into the Midlands, my next suggestion is Mansfield’s Will Swan, who scored ten goals in 28 league matches last season.

The 22-year-old was just 56 rating in FIFA 23, but after landing a permanent move to Mansfield, he will almost certainly receive a big upgrade in EA FC 24.


Danny Johnson – Walsall FC

Staying in the Midlands, Walsall’s Danny Johnson is the next name on my list. The 30-year-old scored 15 goals in 30 appearances for Walsall in the first half of last season, before being recalled by Mansfield.

Johnson has since made a permanent move to Walsall but after finishing the season as one of the top-scorers, he will almost certainly receive an upgrade in the next game.


Ben Whitfield – Barrow AFC

Barrow playmaker Ben Whitfield is another player that I think is in line for a big upgrade in EA FC 24 after being rated at just 59 in FIFA 23.

The 27-year-old scored five goals and assisted a further 12 in League Two last season but was a very low rating in FIFA 23 and is almost certainly getting a big increase.


Ali Al-Hamadi – AFC Wimbledon

Finally, AFC Wimbledon’s Ali Al-Hamadi is nailed on to receive a rating increase in the next instalment, especially as he was rated at just 58 in FIFA 23.

The 21-year-old scored 10 goals in 19 league matches last season, helping the Dons to confirm their safety in League Two after a difficult 2022/23 season for the club.
