Wingers are some of the most important players in your FIFA 22 Ultimate Team, and when you find one who fits, the chances are that you will not only use them in the starting XI for a long time, but will probably keep them around as a super sub too. We’re looking at you, Adama Traore and Lucas Moura.
Fortunately, FIFA 22 has an embarrassment of riches in these positions across most main leagues and key nationalities. You could build an entire team out of world-class Premier League wide players, so we’ve had to be a bit ruthless there, but there should still be good possibilities for most squad types, whatever your budget.
We also suggest picking up one of the faster options for your bench. Remember that cards with high base pace will feel faster off the bench as the rest of your opponent’s team’s stamina begins to drop, so it’s always useful to have a speedster on the side-lines.
Here are the best wingers in FIFA 22:
- Marcus Rashford (LM, England): His rating may not be the highest, but his five-star skills and pace mean the Manchester United player is a must-have.
- Sadio Mane (LW, Senegal): Weirdly underrated, even after he was given a four-star weak foot upgrade, Mane is great out wide or even through the middle with an in-game position swap.
- Mohamed Salah (RW, Egypt): His three-star weak foot always puts people off, but his dribbling helps make space to compensate.
- Raheem Sterling (LW, England): Another player who struggles in Rashford’s FIFA shadow, Sterling is fast and agile.
- Heung-min Son (LM, South Korea): Better as a striker, Son’s five-star weak foot means defenders won’t know which way to turn.
- Lucas Moura (RM, Brazil): An early-game hero, Lucas has pace and great dribbling, even if his shooting is suspect.
- Allan Saint-Maximin (LM, France): The connoisseur’s low-rated hipster card, Saint-Maximin is a dynamo with five-star skills, but he won’t score many.
- Adama Traore (RW, Spain): Ridiculously strong and fast, Adama is effective off the bench and a psychologically damaging sight for a tired opponent.
- Neymar Jr (LW, Brazil): None of us will be able to afford him for months, but he will be his usual irrepressible presence when he gets into the team, with five-star skills, five-star weak foot and an annoying custom celebration.
- Lionel Messi (RW, Argentina): His base card has dropped in value over recent FIFAs, but Messi is still Messi, and his arrival at PSG will make him hot property.
- Achraf Hakimi (RM, Morocco): Since you won’t be able to afford Messi, may we suggest PSG’s other ludicrously talented right-side summer signing? Sometimes he plays at full-back and sometimes on the wing, so his stats are versatile.
- Jonathan Bamba (LM, France): One of the stars of Lille’s unlikely run to the Ligue 1 title, Bamba was superb in the last FIFA and looks better this year.
- Eden Hazard (LW, Belgium): Never quite made the meta last year and has struggled with injuries at Real Madrid, but Hazard’s all-round excellence means he should lock down the left wing position in most squads.
- Ousmane Dembele (LW, France): He may be a symbol of Barcelona’s financial difficulties, but he’s always demonstrated his value in FIFA. Five-star skills and weak foot mean he always gets it done.
- Vinicius Junior (LW, Brazil): A good starter squad winger, Vinicius will terrorise slower full-backs.
- Leroy Sane (LM, Germany): The former Man City player is lightning quick and should be reliable in front of goal, but his three-star weak foot may be an issue.
- Kingsley Coman (LM, France): We can never seem to get a tune out of Coman, but his stats are very solid. A decent alternative to Sane.
- Karim Bellarabi (RM, Germany): With Sancho’s departure to the Premier League, the Bundesliga is short on right-wing options, but Bellarabi can do the job.
- Lorenzo Insigne (LW, Italy): The go-to Italian left winger since time immemorial, Insigne is the archetypal small, pacey wide player who can score lots of goals.
- Hirving Lozano (RW, Mexico): Lozano, Insigne, and Mertens is a terrifying early-game Serie A trio if you can put it together, and Lozano is a good sub whatever the situation.
So there you have it, the best wingers in FIFA 22 for your money. These pacey players might cost you a pretty penny, but they’ll be worth it in the long run. Make sure to check out our the FIFA 22 release date while you’re here and check out the changes to the FIFA 22 Divisions Rivals rewards.
