Upgrade +7 

Connor Metcalfe: 59 to 66

With a breakout season in the A-League, Socceroos debut, Olympic campaign and Harry Kewell Medal to top it all off, Connor Metcalfe has seen his stock deservedly rise more than any other Socceroo, according to FIFA's rankings.

Upgrade +5 

Denis Genreau: 60 to 65

Curtis Good: 64 to 69

For Denis Genreau, 2021 had everything. An outstanding campaign in the centre of the park for A-League newboys Macarthur FC, becoming a Socceroo, an Olympian and sealing an exciting transfer to France - one that has seen him rise from a bronze to silver in FIFA 22. 

Curtis Good has enjoyed a similar ratings hike after returning to the national team set-up in June, earning his long-awaited second Socceroos cap.

Upgrade +4 

Harry Souttar: 66 to 70

Harry Souttar continues to go from strength to strength in a Socceroos and Stoke City shirt. The towering centre-half enjoyed a consistent season in the Championship, while representing Australia in World Cup Qualifying and at the Olympics. Considering his immense strike rate and composure at the back, many fans may well suggest his remains underrated in FIFA terms...

Upgrade +3

Jamie Maclaren: 73 to 76

From silver to gold for the first time, Jamie Maclaren's upgrade is well deserved following a red-hot season which saw him capture the A-League Golden Boot and PFA Player of the Year - as well as a place in the FIFA 21 Rest of World Team of the Season!

Upgrade +1

Aaron Mooy: 76 to 77

Callum Elder: 68 to 69

After Maty Ryan held the crown of Australia's highest-rated player in FIFA for the last two years, a small upgrade for Aaron Mooy has seen him join the goalkeeper as the Socceroos' best base card in this year's game. 

Callum Elder has also enjoyed a slight increase in rating after an impressive season with Hull City that ended in promotion, a place in FIFA's Football League Team of the Season and, of course, a Socceroos debut this month.
