Young attacking players in FIFA 22 are probably one of the most exciting and attractive to work with. This is mostly because of the fact that young players who play in forward positions generally possess blistering pace, along with graceful skills that help them dance past the tightest of defenses. Additionally, the players in these positions are also huge goalscoring threats because of their accuracy and finishing statistics.

While these players can tend to be a little more expensive when compared to their counterparts from other positions on the pitch, they are great investments to make that will only benefit you in the long run in your quest for silverware.

When picking these players, you need to be sure of exactly what kind of player you are looking for. This is because wingers are different from strikers. The difference is that wingers need to be quite fast, good dribblers, and good passers too. Strikers need to be physically stronger, as well as being good finishers when it comes to scoring goals.

Best Midfielders

Midfielders are quite literally the heart of every team during a game. The quality of midfield in your squad can help determine whether you stand a good chance of winning or not. This is because midfielders form a vital link between defense and attack. Midfielders are required to be extremely versatile, having to defend whenever necessary as well as create goalscoring opportunities further up the pitch during attacks.

Young midfielders can possess great passing statistics as they can be quite agile and creative. The current crop of midfielders is also good at running and dribbling, while also managing to be adept and at home when it comes to sitting in defense and keeping the opponent’s attack at bay.

Based on your needs, you will need to decide on what type of midfielder you want. Midfielders are generally categorized into CAM (Central Attacking Midfielder), CM (Central Midfielder), LM (Left Midfielder), RM (Right Midfielder), and CDM (Central Defensive Midfielder). Each midfielder in this position has their own strengths and weaknesses. Some might be great all-rounders, while some may be specialists.

Jude Bellingham 17 Borussia Dortmund Central Midfielder (CM) 76 88
Ryan Gravenberch 18 Ajax Central Midfielder (CM) 77 89

Best Defenders & Goalkeepers

A good defense is a key to making sure you maintain clean sheets in each game you play. The current crop of young defenders does more than just defend though. Players who play in the wingback position also possess intense pace stats, helping them advance down the wing to assist the wingers and midfielders during attacking moves by providing crosses.

Defenders are required to be physically strong, especially those in the central positions. This is because of the fact that goalscoring threats can arrive both from the ground as well as the air. Young defenders can be pretty good when it comes to defending aerial threats, however, they might need some training in order to go toe-to-toe with the more experienced defenders.

As for goalkeepers, they are probably one of the most important players in the entire squad. A good goalkeeper can make the difference when it comes to keeping clean sheets and winning matches. FIFA 22 has an exciting crop of young goalkeepers who are steadily rising to join the list of the best in the world.

Wesley Fofana 19 Leicester City Center Back (CB) 78 86
Sergino Dest 20 FC Barcelona Right Back (RB) 75 86
Alphonso Davies 20 Bayern Munich Left Back (LB) 81 89
