Quality wingers have always been the difference between a good team and a great one in the FIFA series, and FIFA 22 is no different. With that in mind, here are the best wingers you should sign in the FIFA 22 Career Mode.

Long before Ultimate Team took over the FIFA series, Career Mode was the go-to mode for fans who wanted an authentic football experience. In FIFA 22, it’s being given a long-awaited revamp, giving players the option to create an entire club themselves.

But while designing kits and stadiums are a neat addition, the players on the pitch are still what matters most.

Tricky wingers can be the secret to a successful squad, so here are the very best you should sign in FIFA 22 Career Mode.

Wide players are fundamental to your team’s attack. Their pace, skill, and crossing ability can turn the tide of a match and unlock a stubborn defense.

Also, in many cases, wingers can be responsible for contributing as many goals as the strikers. If your club competes in the top league, having the world’s best wingers is an absolute must.

Luckily, EA‘s FIFA 22 is bursting with talented wide-men to take any team to the next level. Here are the best wingers in this year’s Career Mode.

Best young wingers

There’s plenty of world-class wingers out there, but it’s the stars of tomorrow that make Career Mode exciting. Watching a 17-year-old unknown grow into a superstar is what draws players in time and time again.

With the mode’s development system allowing squad members to evolve, sometimes it’s a better move to think long-term and sign a youngster with a bright future rather than splash out on a big name who’s coming towards the end of their career.

There’s no shortage of wonderkids in FIFA 22, so here are the younger generation of the best wingers in FIFA 22 Career Mode you should sign for your club.
