    no bosnia, serbia, morocco or algeria? i love fifa but find the teams and ratings are biased towards europe and i can see why but in 12 egypt being rated 3 stars and being african champions 4 years in a row.. add in all the top 8 from each continent atleast so you can do continental cups

    Simply disappointed..Fifa the trademark..the enterprise SHOULD demand and commit to ensuring every country that reached the most recent FIFA World Cup is reflected on all Fifa games released, this means for the subsequent 4 years..it shouldn’t be a matter of question..Fifa EA whomever this may concerns..very disappointing..

    how can teams that are in the top 20 international teams based on ranking not be included. It does not make any sense to me.
    Ghana, the most dominant african team in the past decade is left out.

    WoW there are alot of idiots here.
    The reason most of the countries you guys are asking for aren’t in the game is because EA DOESN’T HAVE THE LICENSE FOR THOSE COUNTRIES. Most of you guys are young so you just dont know any better but if there are any of you over 18 asking for a country then you are definitly an idiot. Most of those countries want too much money for FIFA to be able to use their license. EA knows that more people will but FIFA every year instead of PES, if they wanted they could release an exact copy of FIFA 12 and just rename it FIFA 13 and people would still buy it.

    What i dont understand is that if two years ago they had the rights for all the teams in the world for the world cup game then why couldnt they just pony up the money and buy them again for what is now EA Sports most popular selling game? why not combine the two games and have fifa 13 be the all inclusive game that it is meant to be.

    Guy’s I’ve had to clean a lot of comments up.

    Please don’t insult each other’s countries.

    EA would include every single nation if they could obtain the licence for them.

    It’s got nothing to do with where a nation stands in the rankings.

    If your own nation isn’t in there then fair enough, have a moan at EA but don’t direct the moan at the nations that have been included. It’s hardly their fault.

    Really disappointing that Morocco isn’t available. They have atleast three 5-star skillers in their team. Taarabt, Asaaidi and Boussoufa are the ones I know. I know they have a good center mid aswell.

    Why there isn’t Japan, Iran, Iraq, Dubaii, Qatar, Singapore, Malaysia and other asian teams. If they could put India then why not others. Why the hell they didn’t add Croatia .I hope they’ll add next year.

      @Brocklesnar Firstly, India’s inclusion is a good thing for FIFA and will be enjoyed not just by people of India but all over the world. The more teams and leagues that EA can include the better!
       
      Secondly, other nations are not included because EA could not come to an agreement with that nation’s F.A. to licence their league or football association. Otherwise EA would include everyone obviously, but unfortunately in the business world it’s not as straightforward as that.
       
      Fingers crossed that they can obtain more licences next time!

      tboy fresh Wales isn’t on there because EA couldn’t agree licencing terms with the Welsh F.A. Their’s already been new licencing news for FIFA 14, hopefully Wales will be in there.
      India have been included because they’re an up and coming footballing nation with a large supporter base and because their F.A. agreed terms with EA.
      Unfortunately atm the Welsh F.A. must want too much dosh.

    Hey cole, I agree with marty, BG and tboy that they added weak team which don’t even qualify for the FIFA WC every year. I hope EA’s gonna kick out the teams which no1 likes and add teams like Japan, Croatia and especially WALES cuz it’s got Bale, the one who beat the hell out of Man City.
