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.

Best young goalkeepers in FIFA 22 Career Mode

One of the most exciting parts of any Career Mode is watching a prospect blossom into a superstar. There’s plenty of talented young goalkeepers in FIFA 22 with potentially high ratings.

Signing these players on the cheap early on and developing them can be a great way to plan a few seasons ahead, or make a big profit later to fund some more signings. Either way, bringing in someone with lots of potential has very few downsides.

These are the young goalkeepers we’re expecting to the be hottest prospects in FIFA 22 Career Mode. We’ll update this list with ratings, potential and price once the game is released.

Best cheap goalkeepers in FIFA 22 Career Mode

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.

This could be as a backup for a first-choice keeper, or as a short-term replacement after your number one leaves on deadline day. Luckily, there are plenty of options available if you’re not looking to spend big money.

We’ll update this list of cheap goalkeeper options with prices once FIFA 22 hits shelves.

How to complete FIFA 22 Player Moments Ilkay Gundogan SBC

Ilkay Gundogan is looking like a great option in the midfield, and FUT players are going to want to complete his FIFA 22 Player Moments SBC.

Player Moments Gundogan SBC

Manchester City’s Ilkay Gundogan is the latest player to receive a Player Moments SBC in FIFA 22 Ultimate Team. Here’s everything you need to know including stats and how to complete Gundogan’s Player Moments SBC.

Player Moments cards have been somewhat of a disappointment in FIFA 22 Ultimate Team but this Ilkay Gundogan SBC can potentially break that trend.

Luckily, Gundogan is easy to link to squads thanks to his Manchester City allegiance and German nationality. Although this SBC is a touch overpriced, players looking for a quick dribbling central midfielder will want to give him a try.

Players will be required to submit four squads to get their hands on this German maestro, and we’ve got the cheapest solution to give you a hand.

Gundogan’s two biggest assets are without a doubt his passing and dribbling which will allow you to breeze past defenders if used correctly. Gundogan is for the player that prefers a slow and methodic approach to Ultimate Team gameplay.

Unfortunately, his pace is a glaring weakness in the current Ultimate Team meta. Even central midfielders are now expected to boast a ton of pace and Gundogan simply does not have that quality.

Cheapest way to complete Player Moments Gundogan SBC

To complete this SBC players will need to give up four squads: Tactical Emulation, Germany, Premier League, and 88-Rated Squad. With a value of around 600,000 coins, Gundogan is certainly overpriced but those desperate for a new midfielder should not find it hard to invest fodder into this FIFA 22 SBC.

FIFA FUT 22 Team of the Year Warmup Series: Start date, TOTY leaks, more

Before FIFA 22’s Ultimate Team TOTY event, EA Sports are dropping a special Warmup Series promo to build hype.

Published

FIFA 22 TOTY Warm Up Series logo

Team of the Year is here, but before the full squad arrives, EA Sports are dropping the TOTY Warmup Series promo.

For the first time ever, EA Sports have decided to host a pre-TOTY event, with the Warmup preempting the release of the upcoming superpowered squad.

Because this is the first time it’s ever happened, there wasn’t a lot of information about this promo available to players. We can confirm that it’s linked to Team of the Year, and it will give players a chance to stock up on valuable packs.

Players can expect some SBCs, a handful of new packs, and maybe even a few player cards following its initial release. For now, here’s everything we know about FUT 22’s Team of the Year Warmup Series event.

FIFA 22 Team of the Year Warmup Series release date

The good news is that players won’t have long to wait for this promo to start. According to a loading screen in FIFA 22, TOTY Warmup Series will kick off on Friday, January 14.

As with all Ultimate Team promos, the promo will start at 6 PM GMT, adding new content to the game at that time.

TOTY Warmup Series leaks

Interestingly enough, FIFA leakers weren’t able to discover anything about this promo prior to its release.

As it turns out, EA have decided to throw players a curveball with the TOTY Warmup. Instead of receiving a collection of new promo cards, players have received new SBCs, Upgrade SBCs, and new Objectives.

Players will get a chance to earn some incredible new cards through these various means from now until the release of TOTY. EA has also granted players a free 83+ x3 pack that can be found in the FUT Store.

TOTY warmup series announcement

As of now, players can complete a Player Moments Ilkay Gundogan SBC, League Player Malang Sarr Objective, 83+ 3x defender, midfielder, and attacker upgrade SBC as well as two TOTY-themed SBCs.

We’ll be sure to keep updating this article as more information becomes available, while the TOTY Warmup Series continues.

In the meantime, make sure you’re using the best players possible with our guide to Ultimate Team’s best goalkeepers, defenders, midfielders, and strikers.

How to complete Alexandre Pato FIFA 22 Flashback SBC

Alexandre Pato is one of the most electrifying strikers in FIFA 22, and FUT players are going to want to complete his Flashback SBC.

Flashback Pato solution

EA have decided to celebrate the career of Alexandre Pato by releasing a Flashback SBC for the Brazilian striker. Here’s how you can complete Pato’s Ultimate Team SBC and get your hands on an excellent forward.

Ultimate Team players are no stranger to incredible Flashback cards and it seems like Alexandre Pato is the latest to join a growing list that includes Karim Benzema and N’Golo Kante.

The fact that Pato currently plays his football in the MLS will make him rather difficult to fit into squads but players should consider making room for him as the striker should be a goal machine leading the line.

Players will be required to submit three squads to get their hands on this Brazilian speedster, and we’ve got the cheapest solution to give you a hand.

When examining Pato’s stats it’s difficult not to like what you see given how well-rounded of a striker he is. We knew that Pato was going to bring top-tier pace and dribbling to the table but his shooting and physical stats are a pleasant surprise.

86 strength and 94 jumping will be incredibly useful in the box while his 90 shot power and 87 finishing will lead to a ton of goals. Pato feels quick and responsive as a forward with mazelike dribbling ability and his 4* skills and weak foot are a huge bonus. If you use Brazilian players, Pato is a no-brainer SBC.

To complete this SBC players will need to give up three squads: Rossoneri, Seleção, and League Finesse. Considering the value, this is an incredibly affordable FIFA 22 SBC, costing about 145,000 coins in total.

You can check out the cheapest solutions below.

Rossoneri requirements

  • # of players from Milan: minimum 1
