Most of the names below will be pretty obvious for FIFA fans since Lionel Messi leads, along with Robert Lewandowski, Kylian Mbappé, Karim Benzema, and Kevin De Bruyne. For the sake clarity though, we have arranged the players according to their roles and positions.

Best GoalKeeper

Manuel Neuer

Manuel Neuer has a solid overall rating of 90, which spots him among the top ten players in FIFA 23. The Bayern Munich veteran is without a doubt the best goalkeeper in football history.

Best Center-Back

Virgil van Dijk

Virgil van Dijk emerged from his injury stronger and more exhorting. Who would have thought he’d make such a strong comeback, finishing in the top 10 of FIFA 23?

Virgil’s current form is a blip and he’ll improve further; this fact earns him a spot in the top ten players in FIFA 23, despite not looking like the best center-back.

Surely, he will accomplish something great soon to silence the critics, and EA recognized that spark in him and gave him an overall rating of 90.

The stats for Virgil are listed below.

  • Pace – 81
  • Shooting – 60
  • Passing – 71
  • Dribbling – 72
  • Defense – 91
  • Physical – 86

Best Left-Back

João Cancelo

The Portuguese left-back dominates the FIFA 23 ranking in this particular category. He plays for the English Premier League giants Manchester City.

Cancelo is a versatile player who can play left-back and wing-back, providing his team an edge over others.

Cancelo is good on the ball, provides some great passes, defends like a wall, and leads the team on the pitch.

  • Pace – 86
  • Shooting – 75
  • Passing – 86

His stamina rating ensures that he can play for a long time without losing his juices. Moreover, he can join the team on the offense and provide some grand openings.

Kyle Walker can out-muscle many attackers in the right back position and be the shield in the aerial fight. Kyle is a complete package for the right-back position; his stats below indicate that.

Best Defensive Midfielder

Carlos Henrique Venancio Casemiro

Casemiro recently joined Manchester United from Real Madrid. He was a force to reckon with in his old team, and he continued his form in the unit of Manchester United.

Casemiro creates opportunities for offense and covers areas when his teammates are not around. He provides a cushion for his full-back teammates. Casemiro’s form might be the missing puzzle in the Manchester United team.
