Wingers were some of the most important players in your FIFA 22 Ultimate Team, and when you found one who fit your setup, the chances were that you would not only use them in the starting XI for a long time but probably also kept them around as a super sub too. We’re looking at you, Adama Traore and Lucas Moura.

Fortunately, FIFA 22 had 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 had to be a bit ruthless but there were still good possibilities for most squad types, whatever your budget. So, these were the best FIFA 22 wingers you could get.

These were the best wingers in FIFA 22: 

Premier League

  • Marcus Rashford (LM, England): His rating wasn’t the highest, but his five-star skills and pace meant the Manchester United player was a must-have.
  • Sadio Mane (LW, Senegal): Weirdly underrated, even after he was given a four-star weak foot upgrade, Mane was great out wide or even through the middle with an in-game position swap.
  • Mohamed Salah (RW, Egypt): His three-star weak foot always put people off, but his dribbling helped make space to compensate.
  • Raheem Sterling (LW, England): Another player who struggled in Rashford’s FIFA shadow, Sterling was fast and agile.
  • Heung-min Son (LM, South Korea): Better as a striker, Son’s five-star weak foot meant defenders wouldn’t know which way to turn.
  • Lucas Moura (RM, Brazil): An early-game hero, Lucas had pace and great dribbling, even if his shooting was suspect.
  • Allan Saint-Maximin (LM, France): The connoisseur’s low-rated hipster card, Saint-Maximin was a dynamo with five-star skills, but he wouldn’t score many.
  • Adama Traore (RW, Spain): Ridiculously strong and fast, Adama was effective off the bench and a psychologically damaging sight for a tired opponent.

Ligue 1

  • Neymar Jr (LW, Brazil): He was his usual irrepressible presence when he got into the team, with five-star skills, five-star weak foot and an annoying custom celebration.
  • Lionel Messi (RW, Argentina): His base card had dropped in value over recent FIFAs, but Messi was still Messi, and his arrival at PSG made him hot property in FIFA 22.
  • Achraf Hakimi (RM, Morocco): Before you were able to afford Messi, PSG’s other ludicrously talented right-side summer signing was a great choice. Sometimes he played at full-back and sometimes on the wing, so his stats were versatile.
  • Jonathan Bamba (LM, France): One of the stars of Lille’s unlikely run to the Ligue 1 title, Bamba was superb in FIFA 21.

  • Eden Hazard (LW, Belgium): Never quite made the meta in FIFA 21 and had struggled with injuries at Real Madrid, but Hazard’s all-round excellence meant he had the potential to lock down the left wing position in most squads in FIFA 22.
  • Ousmane Dembele (LW, France): He may have been a symbol of Barcelona’s financial difficulties, but he had always demonstrated his value in FIFA. Five-star skills and a weak foot meant he always gots it done.
  • Vinicius Junior (LW, Brazil): A good starter squad winger, Vinicius terrorized slower full-backs.


  • Leroy Sane (LM, Germany): The former Man City player was lightning quick and reliable in front of goal, but his three-star weak foot could become an issue at times.
  • Kingsley Coman (LM, France): With his very solid stats, Coman was a decent alternative to Sane.
  • Karim Bellarabi (RM, Germany): With Sancho’s departure to the Premier League, the Bundesliga was short on right-wing options, but Bellarabi did the job.

Serie A

  • Lorenzo Insigne (LW, Italy): The go-to Italian left winger since time immemorial, Insigne was the archetypal small, pacey wide player who could score lots of goals.
  • Hirving Lozano (RW, Mexico): Lozano, Insigne, and Mertens was a terrifying early-game Serie A trio if you could put it together, and Lozano was a good sub whatever the situation.

So there you have it, the best wingers in FIFA 22 for your money. These pacey players would have cost you a pretty penny, but they were worth it in the long run if you had your eyes on the prize in one of the best sports games out there.
