Whether you are a FUT veteran or a FIFA first-timer, we've all got to start somewhere in FIFA 22 Ultimate Team.
Knowing which leagues and nationalities to go for in your starter squad is not easy, but we are on hand to get you out of the blocks quickly.
As with most squads, the basis of this squad comes from French players - given the countries depth, as well as the variation in leagues they play in.
This squad sees French players team up with fellow affordable stars from the Bundesliga, which should allow you to bring in heavyweights like Dayot Upamecano, Kingsley Coman, Lucas Hernandez and Moussa Diaby in the future.
Alban Lafont (OVR 78)
The Nantes goalkeeper hasn't yet hit the heights we all thought he would when he was at Fiorentina, but aged just 22 the Frenchman is captaining Nantes in Ligue 1.
The stopper costs just 700 coins on PlayStation and 900 on Xbox.
