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.

Best cheap wingers

Whether you’re buying a star of today or tomorrow, it’s probably going to eat a large chunk of your club’s transfer budget.

But if you’re a mid-table side trying to work your way to the top or just looking to buy a reserve winger to play in cup games, it isn’t always smart to spend huge sums of money.

With so many players to choose from, it can be tough to find a bargain who still makes your squad stronger. Here’s our guide for the best cheap wingers you should sign.

FIFA 22 player reveals Ultimate Team trick to instantly make 300k coins

A simple yet often forgotten FIFA 22 trick can gift Ultimate Team players with up to 300k coins before FIFA 23 comes around.

Published

FIFA 22 stadium ultimate team trick

FIFA 22’s endgame is underway, but players are still discovering clever ways to generate coins, and this Ultimate Team trick has the possibility to grant a few hundred thousand.

Despite the fact that FIFA 23 is right around the corner, FIFA 22 players are still enjoying everything the Ultimate Team mode has to offer well into August. While the stakes and excitement can’t match that of FUT’s early game, the end game is still a great way to flex your FIFA skills.

The end of FIFA 22’s Ultimate Team cycle is when the market tends to crash, allowing you to purchase incredible players for bargain prices. If you’re looking to do so but you’re short on coins, a FUT player has revealed a clever trick to instantly gain almost 300k coins in one sitting.

FIFA 22 LAFC stadium

With FIFA 23 set to release on September 30, FIFA 22’s Ultimate Team market is not the pillar it once was at the start of the game. Instead, some of the best cards in the game including Shapeshifters, TOTY, and FUTTIES items are available for cheap.

However, you’ll need coins to live out FIFA 22’s remaining days with the best possible squad and most players have burned through their savings.

Luckily, a helpful tip from a clever Ultimate Team expert could allow you to build your dream squad this late in the game. The trick involves discarding all your FIFA 22 Ultimate Team stadium items.

Stadium items like anthems, flags, and goal songs are used to decorate your FUT stadium. As the player who posted the tip to the FIFA subreddit explained, they “made about 300k” doing so.

The idea is that most players have amassed a ton of stadium items since the start of FIFA 22 that simply remain in their clubs unchecked. They don’t necessarily impact gameplay, so most players will forget about them.

If you’re one of these players, it’s likely that you’re sitting on a goldmine. Of course, if you immediately discard your stadium items as they come in, then this trick will not work for you.

The comments are full of players praising the forgotten trick: “Didn’t realise how much s**** I had. Couldn’t believe it when I seen it was 485 per discard.” Meanwhile, others opted for well-timed Barcelona jokes given their curious financial situation: “Bro went Barcelona’s financial team mode,” and “So this is what pulling a lever feels like.”

Unfortunately, there’s no FUT feature to quick sell all items, therefore you’ll have to manually quick sell them one by one. However, a player in the comments offered yet another helpful tip that should save you some time: “Web app isn’t the worst thing in the world however, took 20 minutes at most.”

Your stadium stockpile will determine how many coins you’ll receive. The OP accrued almost 300k, while some in the comments reached 150k and 200k. Any result that nets you over 100k coins is certainly worth it, as it’ll be considered a fortune in the current market.

FIFA 23 new Icons leaked: Xabi Alonso, Gerd Muller, & Icon downgrades

Here’s a look at the returning Icons that should appear in FIFA 23’s Ultimate Team mode alongside the new Icon cards to expect.

FIFA 23 Icons Ultimate Team

Icon cards are a staple of the Ultimate Team mode and they’ll be making a return in FIFA 23. Here’s a list of returning Icons and a sneak peek at new Icons that leaks suggest will make their way to the game.

There’s nothing quite as exhilarating as packing an Icon card in Ultimate Team. FIFA 23 players will get the chance to do so once more as the legendary figures should continue to feature in Ultimate Team.

With every FIFA release the list of Icons available continues to grow and FIFA 23 will be no different. EA Sports tend to add around four new Icons per game, and leaks have revealed who these players could be.

Here’s everything you need to know about Icon cards in FIFA 23.

What are Icon cards in FIFA 23?

FIFA 22 Icons

Icon cards honor the best players to grace the pitch throughout football history. For starters, there are three versions of each Icon card: base, mid, and prime. Each version is an ode to the player’s career from when they entered the scene to when they achieved global superstardom.

Not only do Icon cards usually boast a high overall rating, but they offer your squad special chemistry attributes.

FIFA 22 Icons were difficult to find in packs, but it won’t be impossible in FIFA 23. If luck isn’t on your side, you’ll have an opportunity to secure Icons as EA tend to add Icon SBCs later in the year.

FIFA 23 expected Icon cards

Two Icons were removed from FIFA 22 for various reasons and while Marc Overmars is not expected to return, leaks claim that Diego Maradona will return to FIFA 23. For the most part, players can expect the same selection of Icon cards from FIFA 22 to carry over to FIFA 23.

EA usually add a few new faces each year. In FIFA 22, players received Wayne Rooney, Iker Casillas, Cafu, and Robin Van Persie.

Ultimate Team leaker DonkTrading has suggested that David Villa, Alfredo Di Stefano, and Gerd Muller could be three of the new Icons arriving in FIFA 23. Meanwhile, FutSheriff has reported that Xabi Alonso, Gerd Muller, and Jerzinho will be the three new faces to appear as FIFA 23 Icons.

David Villa and Xabi Alonso are by far the youngest of the bunch having only recently retired in 2020 and 2017 respectively. Only time will tell if these leaks are accurate, but Di Stefano and Muller both made a lasting impact on the beautiful game, which solidifies their chances of being deemed Icons in FIFA 23.

Keep in mind these are just leaks at the moment and their inclusions are subject to change. With that in mind, here’s a list of the expected Icon cards in FIFA 23:

  • Hernan Crespo (Argentina)

  • Andriy Shevchenko (Ukraine)
  • Ryan Giggs (Wales)
  • Ian Rush (Wales)

We’ll have to wait for EA’s confirmation to see if the four rumored players make the cut, but judging by their playing careers, they’re all deserving of being a FIFA 23 Icon.

FIFA 23 Icon downgrades

Multiple FIFA leakers including Donk and Sheriff are also reporting that certain Icons will be downgraded to FUT Heroes in FIFA 23. If rumors are true, this marks the first time that an Icon player can lose their status from one game to the next.

So far only Nigeria’s Jay-Jay Okocha and Japan’s Hidetoshi Nakata are reportedly going from Icon to FUT Heroes. However, don’t be surprised to see more names join the list as FIFA 23’s release date approaches.

EA Sports’ costly mistake lets players purchase FIFA 23 for less than $1

A costly error from EA Sports has allowed FIFA 23 players to purchase the game’s Ultimate Edition for less than $1.

Published

FIFA 23 players

Some football fans were lucky enough to purchase the Ultimate Edition of FIFA 23 for less than $1 following a major mistake made by EA Sports.

FIFA 23 is right around the corner and players are eager to test out all of the new features that EA Sports revealed. After presentations for Pro Clubs, Career Mode, and Ultimate Team, it’s no surprise that hype for the next stage of the football franchise is starting to build.

FIFA 23 is currently available for pre-order, with several different avenues available to players depending on the platform of their choice. FIFA’s popularity has grown over the years thanks to the success of the fan-favorite Ultimate Team mode.

While FIFA has always been a success on console, the franchise has experienced growth across the PC platform as well. According to the EA Sports FIFA 23 webpage, PC players can pre-order the game through Steam, Stadia, or the Epic Games store.

For a short period of time, players who looked to pre-order FIFA 23 through the Epic Games store were met with a shocking surprise as they found the game available for less than $1. Unfortunately for EA Sports, it seems like they have no choice but to honor the absurdly low price.

As a Reddit post puts it, at the beginning of August, FIFA 23 was available for pre-order on the Epic Games store for ₹5, which is roughly the equivalent of 0.063 USD or £0.052. The OP then adds that, “for context: that was the ultimate edition for 0.063USD.”

To put things into perspective FIFA 23’s Ultimate Edition on PC will set players back $89.99 (USD.) Following the purchases at the incorrect price, the EA Sports FIFA Team issued a statement concerning their costly mistake.

As you can see in the post above, EA took ownership of the mistake and incorrect price by stating that they will be “honoring all pre-purchases made at that price.”

If you’re disappointed that you didn’t seize the opportunity of an absolute steal for FIFA 23, it turns out that there were very specific requirements to meet. One comment states that, “it was only possible in India(or i guess with a VPN) and only for an hour or so.”

Even if you did use a VPN the incorrect price was only around for about an hour, so there’s no telling if you would have made the cut. Players who were lucky enough to capitalize on this error will practically get to enjoy FIFA 23 for free this year.
