Here's how Euro 2020 semi-finalists Spain could be rated in FIFA 22

Luis Enrique's Spanish team have impressed at Euro 2020 so far, having scored the most goals of any team in the competition (12) and booked their place in the semi-final vs Italy.

Take a look at how Spain's excellent form could impact their FIFA 22 player ratings below.

Sergio Ramos (OVR 89)

EXCLUDED - Ramos was left out of Spain's squad this summer

Despite not actually being included in Spain's Euro 202 squad, we are expecting Sergio Ramos to stay among the top centre-backs in the game next season.

It's widely reported that the Real Madrid legend has agreed a 2-year contract with PSG this summer.

Ramos had a disrupted 2020/21 campaign, so it would be harsh to see their ratings drop, therefore we think he will keep his 89 OVR rating in FIFA 22.

Aymeric Laporte (OVR 87 → 86)

BALL PLAYER - Laporte is extremely comfortable in possession

It is difficult to see how Aymeric Laporte is going to force his way back into the Manchester City starting XI.

Laporte has not done much wrong, but the form of Ruben Dias and John Stones has been nothing short of incredible.

Laporte has performed well for his newly-adopted Spain at Euro 2020, but we still think his 87 OVR will take a dip in FIFA 22.

Koke (OVR 85 → 86)

MR RELIABLE: Koke has been a key member of Spain's Euro 2020 side

Koke is a player who perhaps goes under the radar sometimes, picking up just one goal and two assists for Atletico last season.

However, he plays an important role in both Atletico's and Spain's midfield, producing quality performances on a regular basis.

So, we think EA will boost Koke to 86 OVR in FIFA 22.

Rodri (OVR 85 → 86)

GLUE - Rodri is the deep lying midfielder that holds the team together

Spanish midfield general Rodri adapted extremely well to the Premier League.

His physique makes him well-suited to the fast-paced and physical style of the Premier League, while he has also performed well in key games for Spain at Euro 2020.

A slight increase to 86 OVR could be on the way in FIFA 22.

David De Gea (OVR 86 → 85)

SUPER SPANIARD: De Gea has been a brilliant professional for United over the years

David De Gea fell out of favour with Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer this season, opting to go with 24-year-old Dean Henderson as the Red Devil's number one.

De Gea is also playing second fiddle to Unai Simon for Spain at Euro 2020.

As a result of this, we think the Spaniard's FIFA 22 rating will drop to 85 OVR.

Thiago Alcantara (OVR 85 → 85)

SKILLS TO PAY THE BILLS: Thiago has plenty of flair in his locker

Champions League winner Thiago had a fair few critics this season, but his quality is undeniable.

Once Liverpool found some form of defensive stability near the end of the season, the Spaniard seemed to thrive.

Thiago has also played well for Spain at the Euros, so we think he will retain his 85 OVR in FIFA 22.

Marcos Llorente (82 → 85)

UTILITY MAN - Llorente can excel in almost any position

Marcos Llorente played a key role in Atletico Madrid's 2020/21 La Liga title win.

Llorente has also played an important part in Spain's Euro 2020 run, getting up and down the right flank brilliantly.

He will certainly receive an upgrade next season, perhaps to 84 or 85 OVR.

Sergio Busquets (OVR 87 → 85)

ICONIC: Busquets anchored the most iconic midfield trio of all time

At 32 years old, Barcelona's Sergio Busquets is entering the latter stages of his career.

The defensive midfielder has played a crucial role in Spain's Euro 2020 success, however, partnering up with Pedri and Koke.

So, we think Busquets will be rated 85 OVR in FIFA 22.

Luis Alberto (OVR 85 → 85)

PASSING MASTER: Alberto is the creative force for Lazio

Luis Alberto enjoyed another solid season for Lazio, picking up nine goals and two assists in the Serie A, while creating a lot of chances for the Italian side.

Alberto has not played too many minutes for Spain at Euro 2020, but has been solid when he has been called upon.

So, we think Luis Alberto will remain a 85 OVR in FIFA 22.

Cesar Azpilicueta (OVR 84 → 84)

BACK WE GO - Dave returns to centre back, where he was positioned on FIFA 19

He may turn 32 in August, but Cesar Azpilicueta had yet another fine campaign - capped by lifting the Champions League trophy.

Chelsea's club captain was in danger of losing his place in the side to Reece James, but a switch to five at the back saw Azpi thrive on the right hand side of a back three.

We expect Azpilicueta's rating to hold firm, with the veteran carrying his club form into the Euros as well.
