There’s no question that every position on the field is vital, but everyone has their own opinion on which position is most important. The answer depends heavily on things like schematics, style of play, and individual preference. To help you better understand all of your options in FIFA 22, we’ve laid out the top-rated midfielders in the game. 

It’s well-known that midfielders need to have a range of skills in order to succeed. Not only do they need to have the athleticism to compete with the world’s best, but they also need to have adept passing, dribbling, and defending skills as well. 

Typically, midfielders are involved in nearly every play on both sides of the ball, from setting up the offense to disrupting the opponent’s attack. So, it’s paramount that you have a reliable group of midfielders to help give your team a leg-up over the competition.
