FIFA 22 Career Mode offers fans more control than ever by letting them create their own club from scratch. But that doesn’t mean that choosing the perfect striker to grab the goals is any easier. We’ve put together the Best Strikers in FIFA 22 Career Mode you should sign.

Long before Ultimate Team came in a stole the show, Career Mode was the jewel in the crown of the FIFA series.

In FIFA 22, EA is giving the mode a much-needed revamp by allowing fans to build their own club, complete with a custom stadium, kits, and crest.

Even though it’s a neat addition, a great Career Mode ultimately comes down to the squad of players you build, and perhaps most important in that is those at the top end of the pitch. Here are the best strikers you should sign in FIFA 22 Career Mode.

Best stikers in FIFA 22 Career Mode

There’s no denying that defenders and midfielders are also vital to building a team, but if you don’t score goals, you won’t win games. That’s why signing the perfect poachers should be top of the priorities list.

If you’re at a club battling it out for the top prizes, then you’re going to need the very best in front of goal.

Luckily, FIFA 22 has plenty of world-class finishers who can fire you to glory, whether you’re looking for someone quick who’s lethal on the counter-attack or a fox in the box who’s always in the right place at the right time.

Here are the best strikers you can pick up in the FIFA 22 Career Mode.

Best young strikers in FIFA 22 Career Mode

Bringing in an established striker might work well in the short term, but one of the most enjoyable parts of a Manager Career is watching your team grow over the course of many years.

That’s why it’s important to keep an eye on prospects when dipping into the transfer market because someone who may not look like much when you sign them could be one of the world’s best in a few seasons’ time.

There’s no shortage of young talent in FIFA 22, so here are the best wonderkids you should sign early on in your Career Mode.

Best cheap strikers to sign

SIgning at a world-renowned striker or a hot prospect will probably set you back a fair amount of money, but sometimes splashing out doesn’t make sense.

If you’re at a mid-table side looking to climb the table or simply on the search for backup, you’re probably going to be working on a budget. Thankfully, there are more than solid goalscorers on the market that don’t break the bank.

These are the best cheap strikers in FIFA 22 Career Mode you should sign.

Published

on

Any FIFA 22 Ultimate Team player who happens to have a Twitch and Amazon Prime account can claim free Prime Gaming packs in FUT this year. Here’s an easy step-by-step guide on how to claim yours.

Packs are the lifeblood of FIFA 22 Ultimate Team, and it’s the constant lure of pulling one of the game’s top-rated superstars that keeps millions of fans coming back every day.

Usually, earning packs requires plenty of effort from the player, whether it’s grinding out wins on Division Rivals or taking on Squad Battles offline.

With the Twitch Prime Gaming pack, fans have the chance to earn rewards for absolutely free, and here’s how you can do it.

What are FIFA 22 Twitch Prime Gaming packs?

Twitch Prime Gaming packs are free rewards offered to any FIFA 22 Ultimate Team player with a Twitch account and a valid Amazon Prime Membership.

Players who have subscribed to Amazon Prime automatically have access to Prime Gaming, meaning they qualify for Twitch Prime Gaming packs.

EA has teamed up with the two giant companies to offer players rewards throughout the year, in the form of free packs, containing untradeable cards and player picks.

The rewards are dropped monthly throughout the season, so be sure to keep an eye on EA’s social media for the latest releases.

How to claim FIFA 22 Twitch Prime Gaming packs

In order to claim your free Twitch Prime Gaming pack, you must link all three of your accounts together.

It’s worth noting that if you have an Amazon Prime Membership but no Twitch account, you can create one for the purpose of these rewards.

You can find our guide on how to do this below:

  1. Head over to the Prime Gaming website and link your Twitch account to your Prime Gaming account
  2. Follow the prompts to also link your EA and Twitch accounts
  3. Make sure the EA account you link is the one attached to your FIFA 22 Ultimate Team on your main platform
  4. Head over to Twitch and click on the crown in the top righthand corner of the screen
  5. From this screen, you can claim your Twitch Prime Gaming pack
  6. Load into FIFA 22 Ultimate Team and find your rewards on the store

What’s included in Twitch Prime Gaming Pack #8

The eighth of the Prime Gaming packs in FIFA 22 Ultimate Team has yet to drop, which has bewildered Ultimate Team players. Usually, the pack drops between the 15 and 19, but as of May 24, there is still no sign of it. Rumors suggest that the pack will be arriving on May 25, so players won’t have to wait much longer.

Among the untradeable rewards, there are a handful of rare gold players and player picks, as is customary. However, leaks claim that the loan player available this time will be a valuable Prime Icon on a five-game loan.

  • 7 Rare Gold Players
  • Prime Icon (five-game loan)
  • 2x 82+ Player picks
  • 12 Rare Consumables

That was how you can claim your Twitch Prime Gaming packs in FIFA 22 Ultimate Team.

FIFA 22 Ultimate Team: Team of the Week 36 predictions: Di Maria, Gundogan, Abraham

FIFA 22’s Team of the Week 36 is set to drop on May 25, and we’ve predicted who will get an in-form card with major stat upgrades.

Published

on

There were plenty of memorable games and goals in the world of football last week. EA Sports are set to drop some new in-form players in packs, and here are the players we think will feature in FIFA 22 Ultimate Team’s Team of the Week 36.

Each and every week, EA drops the Team of the Week into FIFA 22 Ultimate Team to reward the stars who made the headlines in the previous round of fixtures.

The chosen squad of players receive a special card in packs for the next week for FUT fans to hunt down and use to improve their teams.

Next up is Team of the Week 36, so here are our predictions of who will be included in the next FUT TOTW lineup.

FIFA 22 TOTW 36 release date & time

FIFA’s Team of the Week drops weekly, so players can expect TOTW 36 to release on Wednesday, May 25, 2022, at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET / 6 PM GMT, with an announcement from EA usually coming shortly before.

TOTW cards replace the normal cards of the player in packs for the duration of the week, meaning that the upgraded card is the only version it’s possible to pack for seven days.

Each wave of in-forms remains in packs until they are replaced by the next Team of the Week on the following Wednesday.

FIFA 22 TOTW 36 predictions

PSG thrashed Metz on the final day of the season and while Mbappe’s hat-trick was impressive, his likely involvement in the upcoming Ligue 1 TOTS squad should keep him out of TOTW 36. Instead, Angel Di Maria, the man who is departing the club, should receive an in-form card.

Over in the Premier League, Gundogan was the hero of a thrilling Manchester City comeback that saw them secure the title on the final day of the season. Olivier Giroud and Rafael Leão also made major contributions toward a title win on the last day of the season. Don’t be surprised to see one or both of the A.C. Milan players involved this week.

We’ll have to wait until Wednesday to find out the official squad for Team of the Week 36, but, until then, here are our best predictions.

  • Angel Di Maria – PSG – RW
  • Ilkay Gundogan – Manchester City – CM
  • Olivier Giroud – A.C Milan – ST
  • Rafael Leão – A.C Milan – LW
  • Jack Harrison – Leeds – LM
  • Andy Delort – Nice – ST
  • Joaquin Correa – Inter Milan – CF
  • Dejan Kulusevski – Tottenham – RW
  • Mario Balotelli– Adana Demirspor – ST
  • Diego Lopez – Espanyol – GK
  • Joël Veltman – Brighton – CB
  • Cédric Soares– Arsenal – RB
  • Alexander Nubel  – Monaco – GK
  • Reece James – Chelsea – RWB
  • Rodrigo De Paul  – Atletico Madrid – CM
  • Andre-Pierre Gignac – Tigres – ST
  • Tammy Abraham – Roma – ST

Those were our FIFA 22 Team of the Week 36 predictions. We update this page every seven days with the next batch of TOTW guesses, so be sure to check back here every week.

FIFA 22 Ligue 1 TOTS: Release date, predictions, & leaks

FIFA 22 Ligue 1 TOTS is set to be one of the biggest releases on the FUT calendar, here’s everything you need to know about the event.

Published

on

The Ligue 1 TOTS is set to hit FIFA 22 Ultimate Team very soon, celebrating the very best players that the French league has to offer. Here’s everything we know about FIFA 22 Ligue TOTS, from the release date to squad leaks.

FIFA 22 TOTS is well and truly underway, and EA is showering its players constantly with new and exciting content. The Premier League, Bundesliga, and LaLiga squads have made quite an impact on many FUT teams, and the Ligue 1 squad is set to follow suit.

In recent years, Ligue 1 has emerged as one of the most popular leagues in Ultimate Team, with many of the game’s biggest names plying their trade over in France for PSG, Lille, and other clubs. Unsurprisingly, this means the Ligue 1 is always one of the most-anticipated releases of the year.

We’ve got everything you need to know about FIFA 22 Ligue 1 TOTS right here, including the release date, players we expect to feature, and squad leaks.

FIFA 22 Ligue 1 TOTS release date

According to the official schedule announced by EA Sports, Ligue 1 TOTS will come to Ultimate Team on Friday, May 27, 2022. It will replace the LaLiga squad in packs from 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET / 6 PM BST.

The French league will take center stage for an entire week before being replaced by Serie A on the following Friday.

Don’t worry, though, if you miss out on the player you wanted, the best Ligue 1 players will likely return for Ultimate TOTS on June 10.

FIFA 22 Ligue 1 TOTS voting

Unfortunately, the Ligue 1 TOTS will not take fan votes into account. While the likes of the Premier League and Bundesliga always allow players to vote, other leagues are hand-picked by EA themselves.

The schedule never mentioned a voting window for the French league, and with the squad arriving on May 27, EA will be selecting the elite players involved.

FIFA 22 Ligue 1 TOTS predictions

There have been plenty of stellar performances in Ligue 1 this season. PSG were an unstoppable force as they reclaimed their title, but stars from up and down the table are also worthy of a mention.

With this in mind, here is our predicted FIFA 22 Ligue 1 TOTS.

Goalkeeper

  • Alban Lafont (FC Nantes)

Defenders

  • Achraf Hakimi (PSG)
  • Marquinhos (PSG)
  • Duje Caleta-Car (Marseille)
  • Johnathan Clauss (RC Lens)

Midfielders

  • Aurelien Tchouameni (AS Monaco)
  • Benjamin Bourigeaud (Rennes)
  • Dimitri Payet (Marseille)

Attackers

  • Jonathan David (Lille)
  • Kylian Mbappe (PSG)
  • Wissam Ben Yedder (AS Monaco)

Ligue 1 TOTS squad leaks in FIFA 22

Renowned Ultimate Team leaker DonkTrading has revealed what the Ligue 1 TOTS squad could look like, and it appears that the biggest names in world football have made the cut in FIFA 22. Donk is usually on the mark when it comes to squad leaks and they are suggesting that Neymar, Messi, and Mbappe will be included in the Ligue 1 TOTS.

Aside from PSG’s trio of attackers, Marquinhos, Fofana, Tchouameni, and Ben Yedder are expected to be the most sought-after players in the Ligue 1 TOTS squad.
