EA Sports’ FIFA 16 was released in stores across the globe this week, meaning that gamers everywhere got to do one of their favorite things. Besides play, of course.

A popular trend for many fans of the annual video game is to look up and discuss the player ratings on their preferred clubs and international sides, including the U.S. Men’s National Team. This year comes with a bonus, however, as the U.S. Women’s National Team is also in the game for the first time.

As expected, the American women have much higher ratings in contrast to the men because of their status as a top dog and reigning World Cup champs. Carli Lloyd leads the way with a 91 rating, up five points from the demo, and following her are Abby Wambach and Megan Rapinoe at 90 apiece.

The highest-rated player on the U.S. Men’s National Team is Clint Dempsey, who was given an 81. Following him on the squad are Michael Bradley at 80 and Brad Guzan with a 79. Jozy Altidore comes in at a 74.

Other noteworthy ratings in the U.S. pool include Tim Howard at 80, Jermaine Jones’ 77, the 70 given to DeAndre Yedlin and Julian Green with his 68.

Player ratings can and will change since EA Sports updates them on a week-to-week basis based on how things are going at the club level. That said, here is a closer look at the initial FIFA 16 player ratings for the U.S. Men’s and Women’s National Teams, others in the men’s player pool, and current and former youth national team members:
