Angry Tim Cahill fans have attacked EA Sports across social media and fan forums after his FIFA 15 rating was released.
FIFA players have slammed EA Sports after it was revealed former Everton attacker Tim Cahill has been given a paltry rating of 69 in its latest edition of the popular football video game series.
It seems as though Cahill’s move to the MLS has severely decreased his rating, however his performances at the 2014 World Cup has led many to suggest the 34-year-old has been hard done by.
EA Sports have received a barrage of abuse (by mostly parochial Aussies) across social media and fan forums after Cahill’s rating dropped by 12 points since leaving the English Premier League two seasons ago.
FIFA 15 stats website Futhead was inundated with angry comments, most of which are not G-rated, but we’ll give you the link here anyway if you’d like to take a look at a bunch of livid Australians.
Typically, Twitter exploded with anger too.
Here is just some of the reaction from the angry gamer mob:
I refuse to buy FIFA 15 if tim Cahill is rated at 69 get a grip

Tim Cahill’s FIFA 15 ranking of 69 is absolute bollocks. He’s at least 74!!!
