Players prepare their controller ahead of EA FC 24’s release and to fuel the hype, we look at Netherlands EA FC 24 Player Ratings
The Netherlands is perhaps the best team in football history that hasn’t won a World Cup, despite boasting some of the best teams the world has ever seen. After missing out on the 2018 World Cup, the Dutch national team has gone through a resurgence with the emergence of many talented players in recent times.
The Oranje have star players playing for big clubs such as Liverpool, Barcelona, and Manchester United, and that is reflected in the game with many Netherlands players rated highly in the EA FC 24 game. Here is an in-depth look at Netherlands EA FC 24 player ratings ahead of the game’s release.
Netherlands EA FC 24 Player Ratings: The Highlights
It is no surprise that Liverpool and Netherlands captain Virgil Van Dijk is the highest-rated Dutch player in the game with a rating of 89. Even though the center-back is down by one overall point, he is still a dominant player, with his 93-strength and 89 defending his standout features. Van Dijk also boasts an array of playing styles, including the dominant Aerial style, which allows him to dominate both boxes offensively and defensively.

FC Barcelona midfielder de Jong is the next on the list as he maintained his 87 rating from the previous year’s edition. The Dutch dynamo is an exquisite player on the ball as he possesses an array of passing styles as well as being press-proven, which allows him to wriggle out of the opposition press. Once he is out, he can progress the ball forward effectively either by carrying or passing it since he is rated 87 and 86 for Dribbling and Passing respectively.

The Dutch are very well-stocked in the defensive department and Matthijs de Ligt is a key member of that department. The Bayern Munich defender is up by 1 point from FIFA 23 and is now rated 86. He is a very strong defender, as his 91-strength rating will allow him to dominate attackers. Players will love his committed style as he is the complete package with Block, Bruiser, and Slide Tackle styles.

One of the most improved Dutch players in the game is Jeremie Frimpong, who is up by a staggering 3 overall rating. Blessed with 94-pace, The Leverkusen right-wing-back is also one of the fastest players in the game. He is very good on the ball and has very high Dribbling ratings for a wing-back; combining his pace and on-the-ball skills, the 22-year-old can be a menace in transitions.
Putting fear into the heart of the opposing defence.

A baffling decision by EA FC 24 was to downgrade Jurrien Timber from 80 to 79 after he had a stellar season for Ajax and at the international level as he broke into the Netherlands national team. His success didn’t go unnoticed as Arsenal snapped him up for 40 million in the summer transfer window which is also a reason for shock in this downgrade in rating.
However, it is quite in line with the franchise’s history of bewildering decisions when it comes to player ratings.
