Best strikers in FIFA 22

Here are the best strikers with a golden boot in FIFA 22.

Unless you’re some sort of football hipster, goals are the best thing about football, and in FIFA 22, that was no different. The difference between a sweet victory and a bitter defeat in this beautiful game often came down to your striker. When looking for the best striker in FIFA 22 though, you needed to consider their finishing, shot power, pace, dribbling, and skill moves.

The old cliché, ‘one fat lad and one fast lad’, worked brilliantly in FUT 22 if you were playing two up top – you shouldn’t have written players off because they didn’t have 85+ pace. Besides, any striker who got good service can bang in goals, so be sure to check out the best wingers in FIFA 22, too.

Here were the best strikers in FIFA 22: 

Premier League

  • Cristiano Ronaldo (Portugal): Will we ever see a deadline-day signing again like CR7 moving back to Manchester United? Probably not. Ronaldo was the best striker in FIFA 22 bar none – again.
  • Harry Kane (England): Euro 2020 heartbreak behind him, the England talisman was a reliable finisher in FIFA. Not the fastest, but one of the best-rated for his finishing skills, physicality, and high attacking work rate.
  • Romelu Lukaku (Belgium): Big Romelu’s return to Chelsea brought another useable striker to the Premier League. 81 pace and eats defenders for breakfast.
  • Jamie Vardy (England): Vardy doesn’t need a strong weak foot or fancy skills, because he’s somehow always in the right position to bang goals in for fun.
  • Rodrigo (Spain): A cheaper option for the pace meta, Rodrigo was quick off the mark, so if you played it through to his feet, you would probably score.

Ligue 1

  • Kylian Mbappé (France): FIFA’s golden goose,  Mbappé was disgustingly quick and yet perfectly balanced on the ball, with shooting stats to back it up.
  • Wissam Ben Yedder (France): While he wasn’t the strongest or the highest-rated striker on the pitch, Ben Yedder had been OP in FIFA for years. Dynamic, scores with both feet, and a real nightmare to contain.


  • Robert Lewandowski (Poland): Tall, physical, high attacking work rate, and four-star skill moves and weak foot? Lewandowski was undeniably one of the best strikers in FIFA 22, with obscene finishing from almost anywhere.
  • Erling Haaland (Norway): A humble 84 rating in FIFA 21, it was hard to believe that Haaland was only 21 at the time.

La Liga

  • Sergio Agüero ( Argentina): After ten years in the Premier League, Agüero was an attractive option for La Liga FUT teams. Agile enough to coast past defenders with excellent dribbling and huge finishing ability, this little legend was worth a buy.
  • Inaki Williams (Spain): The definition of cheap beast. Combining 90+ pace with a high work rate for great value at the start of the game. Yes, he wouldn’t be your #1 choice after TOTY but who cared with stats like his?

Serie A

  • Paulo Dybala (Argentina): If you wanted consistency and great links, there were worse things to do than buying Dybala in FUT. 80+ in pace, shooting, and passing, and 90+ dribbling made Dybala irresistible.
  • Ciro Immobile (Italy): Immobile by name but not nature, despite his advancing years, Immobile was one of the best finishers in Serie A. Somehow never fell out of position and knew how to find the top corner.

There you have it: our list of the best strikers in FIFA 22. Hopefully with one of these lads leading the charge, you were whittling through the FIFA 22 Division Rivals rewards.
