As for the FIFA 16 Coins TOTY predictions this year, these can be guessed easily by the community as EA will largely base them on the real life FIFPro World XI team as well as the Ballon D’Or nominees. Since the Ballon D’Or shortlist and the final three have already been revealed to between Lionel Messi, Ronaldo and Neymar – it is guaranteed that these three players will automatically be in the TOTY.
