Starting a FIFA 22 Career Mode is a great way to kick-off your time with EA’s football behemoth, so here are the best teams to use, and the most fun saves you can create.

Whereas many players are eager to dive into EA’s popular Ultimate Team and Pro Clubs modes, there are always traditional players that simply need their FIFA 22 Career Mode fix.

A season in football can change so much: a couple of transfer windows, injuries, breakthrough years, hot prospects, all these are big factors in determining how the next one plays out.

It’s been another huge year in the world of football, and all the happenings have drastically altered the best teams in FIFA 22 and made lesser teams more viable. So here’s a complete guide to the best FIFA 22 Career Mode teams you can use, and fun save files you can have.

Top 10 FIFA 22 Career Mode teams & fun saves

1. PSG

Transfer Budget: £137,610,448 / $184,933,993

Key players: Lionel Messi, Kylian Mbappe, Neymar Jr., Sergio Ramos, Gianluigi Donnarumma, Angel Di Maria, and Marco Verratti

A real fun one to start with, PSG is the quintessential dream team and a real-life Ultimate Team to use. PSG has strength in depth all across the park, and it’s a squad just screaming out for goals, assists, wins, and silverware.

If you still don’t think you’re going to romp to an easy Ligue 1 win and guide PSG to their first-ever European Cup glory, then their sizable budget should help you bring in any other recruitments you desire.

2. Manchester United

Transfer Budget: £163,630,432 / $219,902,119

Key players: Cristiano Ronaldo, Bruno Fernandes, Jadon Sancho, Paul Pogba, and Luke Shaw

This is arguably the strongest team that Manchester United has had since the glory days of Sir Alex Ferguson. With a litany of world-class talent, now could finally be the time for Man Utd to shine brighter than their nearest rivals.

As a Premier League top dog, you could opt for Liverpool, Man City, or Chelsea, but United’s barren run without a League Title is startling, and they have multiple pacey wingers to feed one of the all-time great footballers – Ronaldo.

3. Aston Villa

Transfer Budget: £35,077,456 / $47,140,417

Key players: Danny Ings, Leon Bailey, John McGinn, Tyrone Mings, and Emiliano Martinez

If you’re looking for a team to do a Leicester City and break the top 4 or 5 teams’ dominance, then we think Aston Villa is a tremendous shout in FIFA 22.

With some really good players in each position: a quality striker, speedy wingers – particularly Leon Bailey – a boss midfield of McGinn and Douglas Luiz, and solid defensive options, you can easily add to these positives with a healthy transfer budget too.

4. Wrexham AFC

Transfer Budget: £1,015,417 / $1,364,613

Key players: Paul Mullin, Ben Tozer, and James Jones

No, Wrexham is not a typo. The club, currently situated in the fifth division of English Football, has gained some extra followers around the world as they are now bizarrely owned by Hollywood stars Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney.

The story has become such a sensation that they have now been added to FIFA 22. So it could be time to take this team of aspiring hopefuls to the Premier League and pull off a miracle that not even L.A screenwriters could envisage.

Note: Wrexham AFC can be found in the ‘Rest of the World’ section, and you can then replace them with any team in League Two.

5. Napoli

Transfer Budget: £48,229,764 / $64,815,738

Key players: Lorenzo Insigne, Dries Mertens, Piotr Zielinski, Konstantinos Manolas, Kalidou Koulibaly, and David Ospina

Every year Napoli retains the majority of its star-studded squad, sometimes adding more quality to it, and every year they somehow fail to mount a proper charge for the coveted Serie A title.

It’s crazy to think how good Napoli is from top-to-bottom, but with Juventus wavering and the league more open than it has been for some time, you could easily sign one or two more brilliant players and capture their first league crown since 1990.

6. Barcelona

Transfer Budget: £111,832,768 / $150,291,497

Key players: Sergio Aguero, Memphis Depay, Ansu Fati, Frenkie de Jong, Pedri, Coutinho, Pique, and Marc-Andre ter Stegen

How the mighty have fallen, it’s almost impossible for Barcelona’s demise to have been documented anymore publicly. Financial woes, Lionel Messi no longer at the club, and a team with no identity.

Yet, EA seems to have overlooked this and presented Barcelona with an astronomical budget. The fun challenge is turning Barcelona into a team that can compete again, without Messi, and with a mixture of veteran class and unbelievably exciting youth, you can bring in genuine superstars to round out a mouthwatering team on paper.

7. Schalke 04

Transfer Budget: £15,964,096 / $21,454,068

Key players: Simon Terodde, Salif Sane, and Ralk Fahrmann

It’s a sad state of affairs for one of football’s most sacred clubs. Schalke 04 has had multiple troubles that contributed to one of the worst seasons in the history of the Bundesliga.

Now they are in 2. Bundesliga, and you can bring them back to greatness again. With a reasonable budget, make some loan signings, capitalize on a great stadium and atmosphere, and get the club back into the top division and challenging for Europe!

8. Borussia Dortmund

Transfer Budget: £54,298,584 / $72,985,387

Key players: Erling Haaland, Jude Bellingham, Marco Reus, Giovanni Reyna, Thorgan Hazard, Axel Witsel, and Mats Hummels

Jadon Sancho may be gone, but Borussia Dortmund has a plethora of high-caliber stars that can step up and finally dethrone the mighty Bayern Munich.

When you go through this Dortmund team, it beggars belief that they haven’t won the league since 2012. This season might have to be the one though as star-striker Erling Haaland could be on the move next year, so feed him using their array of talent and bring the big one home.

9. Lyon

Transfer Budget: £43,001,288 / $57,800,138

Key players: Moussa Dembele, Xherdan Shaqiri, Houssem Aouar, Jason Denayer, and Anthony Lopes

During PSG’s last 10 years of spending and dominance, they have been dethroned twice by two separate teams, but strangely neither of them have been Lyon.

Like so many fun teams on this list, they have a veritable smorgasbord of great players at their disposal and should be more dominant than they are. Depay has left a hole that Dembele can fill, but their war chest is big enough for you to make some key additions to the squad and become team number three.

10. AC Milan

Transfer Budget: £32,053,414 / $43,084,564

Key players: Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Ante Rebic, Franck Kessie, Simon Kjaer, Theo Hernandez, and Mike Maignan

The final football club on our list oozes history and prestige, and AC Milan’s name is synonymous with success – until recently.

A revolving door of managers and players has made AC Milan an unpredictable proposition, which is especially more painful given that their local neighbors Inter have finally climbed back to the top of the pedestal. Make the most of AC Milan’s modest budget, and with the talismanic Ibra on your side, the red half of Milan could be victorious again.


That concludes our list of the top 10 FIFA 22 Career Mode teams you should consider using. With a variety of different leagues, scenarios, and budgets, there is something for everyone.

We also have complete guides for the best players in each position for Career Mode: Goalkeepers, Defenders, Midfielders, Wingers, and Strikers.

FIFA 22 Ultimate Team pack animations: How to tell if it’s boards or a walkout

Packs are the lifeblood of FIFA 22 Ultimate Team, and there’s an easy way to tell if you’re about to get boards or a walkout.

Published

on

FIFA 22 walkout player animation

Opening packs is one of the many things that makes FIFA 22 Ultimate Team so addictive, as we desperately hunt for that next star player. Luckily, there is a way to tell if you’re getting a boards or walkout player before you see their face.

FIFA 22 has landed, and eager fans are jumping back into the Ultimate Team grind for another season. A dizzying amount of packs have already been opened, as fans seek to pull the game’s highest-rated players.

Even though EA has made the pack animations far less drawn out this year, there is still a period of suspense while you’re waiting for the player to reveal himself.

However, those with a keen eye will notice a way of knowing how good the pack is ahead of time.

FIFA 22 boards pack animation

Every card can be useful in some way, whether it be as a starter in your Ultimate Team, an impact sub, or SBC fodder. That being said, everyone opens a pack with the hope of getting someone who’s at least boards.

These cards have a rating of 83 or above, and in some cases can still have very high values depending on their stats, league, and nation.

The giveaway from EA that you have packed a boards player is that the stage that shows off the best card in the pack will have orange flames on both sides.

Once you spot it, you know you’re guaranteed at least an 83-rated card or higher.

FIFA 22 boards animation

FIFA 22 walkout pack animation

While packing a boards player is by no means a bad result – what fans really want to see is a walkout.

As the name suggests, these cards are rated 86 or higher and are accompanied by an animation of the player walking onto the screen and doing some sort of celebration.

Much like boards, these packs are also met with fireworks that light up the screen. This time you’ll see six different flames from all around the stage to hammer home that you’ve been awarded something particularly special.

After a few suspenseful moments, the nation will appear on the boards at either side of the card, and the player you have packed will come out – usually performing a hilarious animation.

FIFA 22 walkout pack animation

Fans had originally complained that the animation for walkout players was too fast and didn’t build up enough tension compared to previous years, but this was changed in the latest update.

That was how you can tell how good a pack is before the best player inside is revealed so you get hyped in advance.

EA may tweak the pack animations further throughout the year, we’ll update this page with any new tells that are added or discovered by fans.

How to recover quick sold FUT players in FIFA 22

If you’ve quick sold a player by mistake in FIFA 22, here’s an easy way you can recover them before they’re lost forever.

FIFA 22 Quick Sell Recovery

Quick-selling players in FIFA 22 Ultimate Team is an easy way to make quick coins on unwanted cards. But how do you recover them back if you quick sell by accident? We’ve got a guide, right here.

When it comes to Ultimate Team, as much as we’d love to constantly pack the game’s top-rated superstars, we all know that isn’t always the case.

If you pack an unwanted FIFA 22 player who doesn’t have much market value, you can quick sell to make a quick buck.

But if your fingers slip and you accidentally discard a high-value TOTW or an SBC player, don’t panic – there is an easy way to get them back.

How to recover quick sold players in FIFA 22

FIFA 22 menu

For whatever reason, EA hasn’t included a way of retrieving lost players within the main FIFA 22 Ultimate Team menus.

Luckily, all is not lost, because you can easily get them back using the FIFA 22 Web App.

Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to do it:

  1. Login to the FIFA 22 Web App or the mobile Companion App
  2. Head into the Club menu
  3. Click on ‘Quick Sell Recovery’
  4. Press on the calender icon and select the date you discarded the player
  5. Scroll to the player you want to retreive
  6. Click ‘Recover’
  7. The player will now move into the ‘Unassigned’ section of the main FUT menu
  8. Send them back to your club
Quick sell recovery in FIFA 22 Ultimate Team

This is an extremely useful feature if you’ve mistakenly lost an item, but it does come with a handful of caveats that fans should be aware of.

Quick sell recovery requires players to pay back the coins they received for originally discarding them.

This isn’t an issue with untradeable cards, but worth bearing in mind with special cards that have big quick sell values.

You can also only rescue players you have quick sold in the last seven days, after that they are lost forever. There’s also a limit of five recoveries every 30 days.

Unassigned section of FIFA 22 Ultimate Team

That was our easy guide on how to recover quick sold items in this year’s Ultimate Team, so keep it in mind the next time you discard your best player.
