After winning Euro 2020 the Italian side are set to reap the rewards in ratings on FIFA 22.
What individuals will benefit the most, and will any get an upgrade just for taking part?
Latest - Two Italians have their ratings confirmed
Nico Barella and Domenico Berardi are the latest to have their cards revealed ahead of FIFA 22!
Barella becomes a huge 84 OVR, and will surely be a Career Mode signing as he is only 24!
Beradi goes up +1 OVR to an 82 OVR.
Things are shaping up well if you plan on creating an Italian team on FUT.
Ciro Immobile (OVR 87 → OVR 87)
Another prolific season for Ciro Immobile should be enough to see him maintain his 87 OVR.
The Italian striker scored 20 Serie A goals, but it was not enough as Lazio missed out on Champions League qualification.
Despite not finding his shooting boots at Euro 2020 as of yet, he is still a key member of the team.
Lorenzo Insigne (OVR 85 → OVR 86)
Italy's tricky winger, Lorenzo Insigne, has had an excellent season in the Serie A.
The Napoli man has tallied up 19 goals and 7 assists in an impressive 2020/21 campaign, along with some brilliant Euro 2020 performances so far.
So, we believe that Insigne will recieve a rating boost to 86 OVR.
Giorgio Chiellini (OVR 87 → 86)
Italian veteran Giorgio Chiellini looks likely to be one of the Piemonte Calcio stars set to take a hit to their attributes.
While he will is still a top defender, he is not getting any younger and a decline is imminent, so will likely be rated 86 OVR in FIFA 22.
However, if he continues to impress at Euro 2020, we could see him retain his 87 OVR.
Marco Verratti (OVR 86 → 86)
He can pass, tackle and dribble - Marco Veratti is the heartbeat to PSG and the Italian national team.
An impressive Euros campaign could see the midfielder reach a higher rating for FIFA 22, with him perhaps another star who is let down by his teammates in Paris.
So, we believe that Veratti will remain as a 86 OVR in FIFA 22.
Gianluigi Donnarumma (OVR 85 → 86)
Still just 22 - it's clear that PSG see the opportunity to sign wonderkid goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma on a free just too big to turn down.
The Italian number 1 is likely to secure his move to Ligue 1 after Euro 2020, and with 280 professional games behind him (including 30 international caps) he already has plenty of experience behind him.
We think Donnaruma will be rated 86 OVR in FIFA 22.
Leonardo Bonucci (OVR 85 → OVR 85)
Leonardo Bonucci has partnered his club teammate and oldest friend Giorgio Chiellini brilliantly at Euro 2020.
The veteran continues to show his class and experience when stepping onto the field for club and country.
Despite entering the final years of his career, we believe Bonucci will keep his 85 OVr rating in FIFA 22.
Jorginho (OVR 83 → OVR 83)
Chelsea fans seem to get frustrated by midfielder Jorginho sometimes, but he did find consistency last season.
The Brazilian has formed an excellent midfield partnership with N'Golo Kante, with the pair having highly contrasting styles.
A Champions League success may have silenced the doubters, with Jorginho continuing to impress at the Euros for Italy.
Nicolo Barella (OVR 80 → OVR 84)
Iner Milan's 24-year-old central midfielder, Nicolo Barella, has caught the eye of many at Euro 2020.
The Italian picked up 9 assists in Serie A last season, along with 3 goals.
Barella has his increase confirmed, getting a 84 OVR on FIFA 22.
Andrea Belotti (OVR 80 → OVR 82)
Andrea Belotti has been rewarded with a place in Italy's Euro squad for his brilliant season for Torino.
The striker has scored 13 goals whilst picking up 7 assists in Italy's premier division.
So, we think that Belotti will receive a +2 boost, to 82 OVR in FIFA 22.
Domenico Berardi (OVR 81 → 82)
He didn't play a starring role in Italy's success, but he was often involved from the bench.
Not a superstar, but with great dribbling ability, he can create dangerous situations and make things happen.
Federico Chiesa (OVR 78 → OVR 81)
Federico Chiesa is another Italian youngster who has emerged in the past couple of seasons.
Having scored 9 goals and picked up 9 assists for Juventus in the 2020/21 Serie A season, the 23-year-old has gone on to being an important part of Italy's squad.
So, we think Chiesa will receive a boost to 81 OVR and will be moved to a Right Winger in FIFA 22.
