From FIFA 94 To FIFA 19: Penalty Kicks Through The Years

From FIFA 94 to FIFA 19.

Here’s how penalty kicks have changed throughout years:

Talking of FIFA 05, lets take a trip down memory lane by revisiting their highest-rated squad. Get ready for a nostalgia trip, folks:

  • GK: Gianluigi Buffon (97)
  • RB: Alessandro Nesta (94)
  • CB: Sol Campbell (93)
  • CB: Jaap Stam (93)
  • LB: Paolo Maldini (92)
  • CM: Patrick Vieira (94)
  • CM: Francesco Totti (94)
  • CM: Zinedine Zidane (96)
  • RW: Thierry Henry (97)
  • LW: Ronaldinho (93)
  • ST: Ruud van Nistelrooy (95)

Of course, a few players are playing in different positions, but it’s crazy to see those ratings.

In more recent FIFA titles, the ratings have usually been capped below 95 during the launch period.

Oh, and here’s how they would compare with the top-rated footballers (excluding legends) in FIFA 19:

  • GK: David de Gea (91)
  • RB: Sergio Ramos (91)
  • CB: Diego Godín (90)
  • CB: Mats Hummels (89)
  • LB: Giorgio Chiellini (89)
  • CM: Toni Kroos (90)
  • CM: Kevin De Bruyne (91)
  • CM: Luka Modrić (91)
  • RW: Lionel Messi (94)
  • LW: Neymar (92)
  • ST: Cristiano Ronaldo (94)

Imagine seeing those two teams face off against one another?

It would be absolutely insane.

Pick up FIFA 19 on September 28 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.

What did you make of the FIFA 05 squad?
