FIFA 22 Best Wingers (LW, RW, LM, RM)

In this FIFA 22 Best Wingers guide, we will be covering the best LW, RW, LM, and RMs in this iteration of the game.

Wingers in the FIFA franchise have always been important. Some might consider them more important than the Strikers in the middle. In FIFA 22 as well, having fast and quick wingers can prove valuable for your formation and tactics. Using the right and left flanks with the fast wingers to take the ball into the opponent’s half is one of the most common and effective strategies in FIFA, and in FIFA 22, it’s no different.

Now, finding good players to play at RW, LW, RM, and LM positions can be tricky, especially when there are so many players to choose from. And when it comes to Career Mode, young wingers with good potential play an important role in your club’s success. While Pace is the #1 stat to consider while choosing a winger’s role, the whole choice should not solely depend on it. In my experience, if you have a wing player with good finishing but slightly less speed, he/she can be more effective than the one who only has pace. In short, while pace is great, we need a balanced approach like all other positions in FIFA 22.

Keeping that in mind, we have shortlisted the best FIFA 22 wingers you can have at LM, RM, RW, and LW positions.
