FIFA 22 Career mode gives fans more freedom than ever before, but that doesn’t make picking out the right man between the posts any easier. We’ve put together a detailed guide of the very best goalkeepers you should be signing.

Away from the fierce competition of Ultimate Team, sometimes a Career Mode can make for a relaxing change of pace — especially in FIFA 22, thanks to the all-new Create-a-Club feature that lets you build a squad from the ground up.

As your club grows, it can be tough to find the right signing to take it to the next level. A great goalkeeper is vital to success, so we’ve put together the best stoppers you should sign in FIFA 22 Career Mode.

Best goalkeepers in FIFA 22 Career Mode

Goalkeeper is the one position on the pitch that we as players have no control over. Once an opponent has broken through the defense, it’s completely in the hands of the AI whether or not it winds up in the back of the net.

For this reason, sometimes the best choice in goal is simply the player with the best overall stats. Especially if you’re at a club that is competing for the top prizes.

These are the goalkeepers we’re expecting to be the best in FIFA 22 Career Mode. We’ll update this list with confirmed ratings as soon as EA announces them.

Not every signing is about bagging one of the world’s best or a 19-year-old wonderkid. Sometimes a club needs a solid goalkeeper without breaking the bank.
