How Italy's impressive Euro 2020 squad could be rated in FIFA 22

Roberto Mancini's Italian side have more than impressed at Euro 2020 so far, having booked their place in the semi-final vs Spain.

Italy's outstanding form should have a significant impact on their FIFA 22 player ratings.

LETHAL - Immobile will be hoping to find his shooting boots in the semi final

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.

WONDER STRIKE: Insigne's long range goal sent Italy through to the Euro 2020 semi final

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.

VETERAN - Chiellini absolutely loves defending

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)

MAGIC MARCO - Verratti makes the Italian side tick

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.

ON THE MOVE - Gianluigi Donnarumma is expected to join PSG on a free transfer from AC Milan

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.

BRILLIANT BONUCCI - The Juve centre back has been a key leader in the Italian Eero 2020 team

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)

HOP, SKIP & A JUMP - Jorginho has proved his worth this season

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.

ALL-ROUNDER: Barella will have a quality base card in FIFA 22

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 the Serie A last season, along with 3 goals.

Barella is definitely in line for an upgrade in FIFA 22, perhaps to 82 OVR.

CLASSIC NUMBER 9 - Belotti is a traditional central striker

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.

BIG GAME PLAYER - Chiesa has scored some crucial goals for Juve and Italy

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.
