Northampton Town's Pollock hits back over 'harsh' Fifa 20 stats
A YouTube video of a professional footballer taking issue with his skills ratings in a video game has been viewed more than two million times.
Northampton Town midfielder Scott Pollock attempted to show his 51/100 overall Fifa 20 rating was too low.
The highest rated player is Barcelona and Argentina striker Lionel Messi with 94/100, while England captain Harry Kane gets 89/100.
Pollock described some of his ratings as "harsh".
Players are rated out of 100 on the EA Sports game for their pace, shooting and passing ability, dribbling and defending skills and overall strength.
The video featuring the 18-year-old shooting, passing and dribbling was filmed by football "freestyler" Kieran Brown.
Pollock was particularly unhappy with his 43 rating for shooting. He said: "I think it's a bit harsh."
- Can a new stadium ever feel like home?
- What was the first Fifa like?
- 'I play Fifa at home - now my song is on the game'
The video shows him scoring several shots, including volleys and penalties, leading Brown to say they should "bump his stats up a bit".
Pollock is not the only player who is unhappy with his rating on the EA Sports game.
England and Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho, 19, complained he had only been rated 77 for passing.
While his England teammate, Tottenham midfielder Eric Dier said: "My pace is 54 and my dribbling is 65 - it makes no sense."
Pollock is no stranger to attention on YouTube after he emerged as one of the stars of online football team Hashtag United, which had almost half-a-million subscribers before he joined Northampton's youth team.
Set up by YouTube personality Spencer Owen in 2016, Hashtag United - which was granted entry into the non-league pyramid last summer - gained followers mainly through exhibition matches against celebrities.
