Same question each year. Who will be the best player in FIFA? Sometimes it's Ronaldo, sometimes it's Mbappé, yes, in the past it was even a Muriel or Ibarbo. The biggest question we all ask ourselves is: who will destroy every defense this year? Let's take a look at the best player in FIFA 22 ...
Of course, we know that the meta is very important. So you can't say for sure which player will be the very best. However, because of FIFA 21, the information about FIFA 22 and our many years of experience in front of the console, we can pretty much say which superstar will win the virtual Ballon d'Or. Let's go!
The Best Player in FIFA 22
Let's first take a look at who was the best in FIFA 21. For sure, Kylian Mbappé. Ronaldo, yeah yeah, we hear you. You're right, CR7 was also at the forefront. Nevertheless, the Frenchman was a bit stronger due to his pace and agility. If headers and physique had been as strong as in the beginning of FIFA 21, Ronaldo would have been the number one.
Lionel Messi is not good enough due to his 4 star skills and weak foot, and is also increasingly losing pace, he won't be the best player. Neymar will definitely be one of the best. Right, just one of the best. Why? Year after year, he has not enough physique and, above all, stamina, to convince the entire community. It won't be much different in FIFA 22 either.
Bayern fans, I know you've been waiting for this. Lewandowski gets a 92, as we have already know. Then he should be THE best in FIFA 22 ... actually. But since dribbling, agility, pace and skills are so the most important stats (even if physique is getting stronger in FIFA 22), Lewandowski will simply miss these. EA would have to change the whole gameplay to choose Lewandowski as the best player in the game. In terms of rating, he'll be the second best, of course, but not in game.
So, now we come to the two chosen one. Mbappé will not have the strongest rating, as we have already highlighted in the PSG ratings, but he will be the best. He just has everything a player needs in FIFA 22. 97 Pace, 5 star skills, 88 shooting, agility and a certain flexibility. It's just impossible that any other player will be better then the Frenchman in FIFA 22.
And yes, we don't see Ronaldo at the top. He is just too slow, has not enough phsyique. We'd be surprised if headers will be stronger in FIFA 22, so Ronaldo won't be the best player.
