FANS rushed to slam FIFA 20 after a leak showed Shkodran Mustafi to have a higher rating than Harry Maguire…before realising it's a fake.
A leaked screenshot of the two's player cards showed the German – with an all-round rating of 83 – scoring higher than Maguire in pace, shooting, passing AND defending.
One tweeted: “@EASPORTSFIFA how on earth is Mustafi better rated than the worlds most expensive defender?
“Even if you don't agree on the price of Maguire, something that we can all agree on is Maguire is a million times a better defender than Mustafi. Absolute joke.”
Another added: “How has Mustafi got a higher rating on Fifa than Maguire? I swear FIFA are mad.”

The 23-year-old told The Guardian he “loves” London, the Prem and Arsenal – after hitting form he admits he failed to show for Real last term.
Ceballos said: “We’ve got a very good, compact side and the three up front really make the difference.
“You can compare Aubameyang to Cristiano when he was at Madrid in the sense that he plays close to the goal. He lives for scoring. He’s very important for us, fundamental.
“Pepe is very direct. And Lacazette, for me, is the best player. He understands the game perfectly and, if he’s 100 per cent, he’s going to give us so much.
“I’ve hardly noticed any difference in size between Real Madrid and Arsenal.
“The fans are very passionate, they love the players. It’s much easier to adapt because they make you feel like you’ve been at the club forever.”
ARSENAL fans continually branding Robin van Persie a “snake” may have been one of the reasons the Dutchman was pictured wearing Manchester United shinpads in Vincent Kompany's testimonial.
The Gunners faithful are still let to forgive their former striker for leaving the club for their rivals at Old Trafford in 2012.
Van Persie, 36, went on to spent three seasons at United and scored 58 times in 105 appearances in all competitions, being part of the last side to win the Premier League.
