The Weekend League and other FUT modes in FIFA 22 are still being actively played by a significant number of players, despite the fact that the new FIFA game is only a few days away. Since many endgame cards have already expired in FUT 22 (due to time-limited SBCs or Objectives), we have chosen a few cards for each position in the game, that will remain there until the end or that will be there for some time (Premium Futties and Moments may not be available at the time that you are reading, since they are time limited SBC’s!).
They don’t require a lot of chemistry and can either help you win or stop you from scoring any goals. They are the scariest when you know how to manually move them to the side when your opponent thinks they are going to easily score a one on one situation. And the best part is that they are quite cheap.
Alisson Becker (TOTS, 95, 13K)
He is a right-footed Brazilian goalkeeper who stands at 191 cm (6′ 3″) tall and plays for Liverpool in the Premier League. Keyword speed, when you rush Alisson out in a one-on-one situation, your opponent nearly always buckles under the pressure. Therefore, he is pretty annoying when you play against him. With a 90+ on every stat the best thing to do is keep him on Basic chemistry style.
- Diving: 94
Nick Pope (Moments, 98, 50K SBC)
English goalkeeper that is 200cm tall (6’6″) and who moved from Burnley FC to Newcastle United this summer, also playing in Premier League. He is right-footed and has medium/medium work rates. A solid goalkeeper, has pretty cheap SBC and the most interesting thing about this card is that he has 5-star skill moves! As a result, you can have fun dribbling through your opponents if you just love to do skill moves.
- Diving: 96
Thibaut Courtois (TOTS, 95, 12K)
He is a left-footed Belgian goalkeeper who is 199 cm (6’6″) tall and plays for Real Madrid in LaLiga Santander. When you look at his stats they aren’t that special comparing to the other two, but believe me he is decent! Surely the best goalkeeper in the LaLiga and is an amazing link to Eder Militao, if you are building a Spanish team this is a must have.
- Diving: 92
Since defending in FIFA 22 is like no other, Centre-backs are definitely the most important players in the team. Even though the defending in this game is somehow more challenging and more manually optimized, defenders are actually more AI based than ever. Because of that, you just want to have a good all around and most importantly quick CB who is gonna chase and stop every opponent. If you are struggling with defense, make sure to check out our beginner’s guide on how to defend in FIFA 22!
Kalidou Koulibaly (Moments, 98, 130K SBC)
Celebrating his move from Napoli to Chelsea, EA gave us an amazing, well priced, but also timed SBC. He is a definition of an endgame player and even his TOTS card was insane (so if you are looking for a Italian League defender definitely try him.) Currently he is available for a small amount of time, so be sure to do him quickly.
Kyle Walker (Shapeshifters, 95, 150K)
Currently and probably the best centre-back that you can find on the marketplace or get in packs. He has a high/high work rate and works best with Sentinel chemistry style. His pace is incredible and with a nice chemistry style boost his defending can be maxed out, in addition he links great with Premier League/England players.
Éder Militão (TOTS, 95, 25K)
One of the best Team of the Season CB’s, if not the best. Eder is a Brazilian defender which plays for Real Madrid in LaLiga Santander. I’ve used him so much and I’ve enjoyed every bit of it, he is amazing defender and he can still compete against almost every endgame FUT 22 cards out there.
Left Backs (LB’s)
I simply enjoy using left backs in this game since they are so important for both defending and attacking. EA already gave us an endgame left backs back when they have released Team of the Season and even today most of the people haven’t felt a need to try a few new ones.
João Cancelo (TOTS, 95, 35K)
At the beginning when he came out he was one of the best TOTS cards out there, with his all-around stats and his unique body type people used him on every position on the pitch. He has 4 star skill moves and 5 star weak foot, he also offers a great link with Portugal and Premier League players.
Theo Hernández (TOTS, 95, 60K)
Definitely the best Left back in the game, he is everywhere and he easily stops every attacker that tries to get behind him. He is tall, agile, high work rate for both attack and defending, he also has a unique body style and also offers a great link for most of the meta cards out there.
Right Backs (RB’s)
Same as the Left backs, Right backs are also very crucial when it comes to defending and also attacking. When TOTS came out we haven’t seen that much of a endgame RB’s so most of the people used Icons (like Alberto Carlos and Marcos Cafu), but when Shapeshifters came out we got what we wanted!
Iván Córdoba (Shapeshifters Hero, 97, 12.5K)
An endgame card for an amazing price, Cordoba is a beast! He is a high/high work rate player with 4-star skill moves and 4-star weak foot. Similarly like the other endgame full backs he can play as a CDM or sometimes on even on the right wing. However, personally I love to play good defense so I keep him on a right back position as he is able to stop almost every attacker considering his pace and average body type. He works best with Anchor chemistry style. The only downfall is that he only links with Seria A players or other Shapeshifters Hero cards.
Federico Valverde (Shapeshifters, 95, 22K)
Also an amazing value for this card, he is just like TOTS Joao Cancelo and maybe even better. Same as Joao, people can use him everywhere on the pitch, he works flawlessly on CDM. He also works best with Anchor chemistry style.
Left Wingers / Left Midfielders (LW, LM)
To be honest, I had the most fun playing this game with these cards because they are quick, can dribble, and can score amazing finesse shots from a long distance. They are literally unstoppable players, and the best part is that they are not at all pricey.
Franck Ribéry (Shapeshifters, 98, 24K)
As I said, these cards can do it all when it comes to attacking! Ribery is definitely one of my favorite cards in the game, he has a 5/5-star skills and weak foot, he is very quick and with that short & lean body type he can be really difficult to stop. Not to mention that he can score from anywhere! With Hawk chemistry style you can boost his pace and shooting to 99, and also his physicality a little bit.
Allan Saint-Maximin (Premium Futties, 97, 500K SBC)
The most expensive of them all but he is worth every penny! Saint-Maximin has the smoothest dribble I’ve ever seen, and he simply goes by any defender. His shooting is almost maxed out and he can also finish from anywhere. Last but not least, he is a physical monster who has 93 strength! Thanks to that he can keep the ball brilliantly while getting past defenders. Considering all of this, he is definitely an amazing endgame player.
Abedi Pelé (Shapeshifters Hero, 98, 20K)
When this card came out in July he was undoubtably one of the most dangerous cards to play against, and still to this day he can be very good for your Bundesliga/Shapeshifters Hero team. Comparing to the other two, Abedi Pele doesn’t offer that much of a great shooting ability but if you give him a nice chemistry style shooting boost (Deadeye for example), he would also be able to finish from almost anywhere. Just like the other two, his agility and dribbling stats are amazing and if you use him correctly he would be a great addition to your team, maybe even as a super sub.
Right Wingers / Right Midfielders (RW, RM)
Given that the majority of RW/RM players were SBC’s with time limitations to do, there aren’t as many options for right wingers as there are for left wingers. Nevertheless, we were still able to pick a three endgame cards who are simply outstanding and will fit nicely into your FUT 22 squad!
Mohamed Salah (TOTS, 97, 80K)
Where do I begin, Mo Salah hold a price for so long and he is still holding it in the middle of September! Even though he came out with PL TOTS back in May, he is still one of the best, if not the best, right winger that you can have in the game. Every stat that he has doesn’t really need a boost… Shooting, pace, passing, dribbling, he has it all! Most of the people use an Architect chemistry style to boost his physicality to 94. But, the only downfall is a 4-star skill moves and weak foot.
Antonio Di Natale (Shapeshifters Hero, 98, 85K)
Another Shapeshifter Hero that is absolutely cracked. Di Natale has everything, and he is my number one right winger. The most amazing part about this card is that he really does make a difference on the pitch, his runs and positioning are something that every FIFA 22 player wants and needs, definitely a game changer. In addition to all of this, he has that 5 star skill moves, the only flaw is that he feels somehow weak in duels.
Timo Werner (Shapeshifters, 96, 20K)
Cheapest but still as good as the others, Timo Werner is a speed demon. Similarly like the others, he has it all. The most impressive thing about this card is his physicality and with proper chemistry style boost (Marksman) he will be unstoppable.
Center Midfielders (CDM, CM, CAM)
It is crucial to have a strong midfielder who can assist the defense, support the offense, and possibly even take the offensive initiative. What makes one midfielder a good endgame midfielder? In a short words, he needs everything. Including shooting, dribbling, defending, and possessing strong physical attributes.
Ferland Mendy (Premium Futties, 96, 1m SBC)
When Mendy came out in SBC we were all shocked with the price and everyone thought that EA has gone crazy. But, the only worst part about this card is his price, which now in the middle of September isn’t that big of a deal, considering 85+ x10 Upgrade packs are now repeatable without limitation. Regardless, if you want to do him you would still need to sacrifice a lot of fodders. Overall, Mendy is simply one of the best midfielders in the game, his stats match the expectation for every endgame midfielder so if you have time & fodders definitely try him.
Sergio Ramos (Shapeshifters, 96, 18k)
Although Ramos got a card in a striker position, many people, including me, used him in midfield and he is absolutely good for it. 5-star skill moves with unique body type along with Anchor chemistry style attribute, makes him a very dangerous player in both attack and defense.
Alphonso Davies (Shapeshifters, 96, 18k)
Same as the Ramos, Alphonso Davies also has a ST position card by default, and that’s completely fine since he can really be a decent attacker. However, with his nice defending and physical stats he can also be very useful in midfield.
Strikers (ST, CF)
At the end, choosing a good striker card for your FUT 22 team is very important and here are some amazing endgame strikers.
Adama Traoré (Shapeshifters, 95, 12k)
Adama is a physical beast and I’ve used him so much. Considering his speed is unbelievable and his physical is 93, he is so good at making forward runs or just wrestling with defenders in their box. The only downfall is 4-star skill moves.
Marcus Rashford (Shapeshifters, 97, 60k)
Rashford is by default on a CAM position but in my opinion he works better as a striker. He is so smooth on the ball and the reason is his unique body type. However, the only flaw is his low balance that can be fixed with Engine chemistry style, definitely a good PL endgame card.
Heung Min Son (Shapeshifters, 97, 100k)
5/5 skills and weak foot make Son undoubtably one of the best finishers in the game. Unlike Rashford, Son is absolutely outstanding in every attacking aspect without any chemistry style boost, but most of the people use Engine on him for pace, passing and dribbling boost.
Eden Hazard (Shapeshifters, 96, 17k)
By default also a CAM that is better as a striker. His insane acceleration is the first thing about this card that you’ll notice; I haven’t used anything like it this year. Every time you press the sprint button, it appears as though he is fired out of a rocket. He is a delight to use when coupled with his 5-star skill, maxed-out dribbling, and other attributes. For some reason, left-footed players on FIFA 22 seem to have slightly more broken shooting, and this was evident with this card.
