FIFA 22: BEST and WORST teams to challenge your mates with

People will be able to get on FIFA 22 in the next few hours, with the EA Play Trial going live.

However you decide to use your 10 hours, you want to make sure you know who the best (and worst) teams to use are.

Read on to find out all you need to know about the best and worst teams on FIFA 22.


International Women's Teams

You can still only use women players in their international teams, and when EA released the top 22 women players it was clear what team would come out on top.

Despite not being the top-rated players, there was an abundance of players from the USA in the top 22, with 6 overall.

They will be the go-to team to use, with 87 ATK, 86 MID, 84 DEF giving them a 5* rating in FIFA 22.


Following them are Germany, with 84 ATK, 84 MID, 81 DEF and a 5* rating.

France comes in at third best, with 86 ATK, 82 MID, 82 DEF and a 4.5* rating.

If you want a challenge, the worst womens team to use is Mexico, with 73 ATK, 73 MID, 72 DEF and a 3.5* rating.

International Men's Teams

Over the summer we saw Argentina win the Copa America and Italy win Euro 2020, but it will be France who are the men's international team to use in FIFA 22.

With 88 ATK, 85 MID, 82 DEF and a 5* rating, they are solid everywhere.

Kylian Mbappe being boosted to a 91 OVR and Karim Benzema rejoining the squad sees their attack rocket up, and with a now 90 OVR N'Golo Kante partnering Paul Pogba in midfield, they are a very strong team.

Coming in as the second-best is England, with 87 ATK, 83 MID, 84 DEF and a 5* rating.


Their sublime run to a tournament final and great club form has seen, among others, Harry Kane upgraded to a 90 OVR, Phil Foden an 84 OVR and Harry Maguire an 84 OVR.

Spain sneaks in as the third-best, and although their team doesn't contain any real superstar players, they still boast an impressive 83 ATK, 84 MID, 84 DEF and a 5* rating.

The worst international men's team are New Zealand, with 70 ATK, 68 MID, 68 DEF and 0.5*, so if you want to embarrass your mates on the international stage, make sure to use them.


If you're looking to play with the most elite club on FIFA 22, look no further than Bayern Munich.

The German giants are rated 92 ATK, 85 MID, 81 DEF with 5*.

Robert Lewandowski can lead the line well, flanked by speedsters Leroy Sane and Kingsley Coman.

Leon Goretzka is an absolute animal in midfield, partnering well with Joshua Kimmich, and Alphonso Davies will be everyone's favourite LB.

Their RB position isn't the best, with Benjamin Pavard lacking all-important pace.

Closely behind in second best are PSG.


With the insane attacking three of Neymar, Kylian Mbappe and Lionel Messi, they have 89 ATK, 83 MID, 85 DEF and a 5* rating.

With summer reinforcements of Sergio Ramos and Achraf Hakimi in to bulk up the defence, and Georginio Wijnaldum to give some legs in midfield, PSG only lacks supreme talent at LB and one of the CMs.

Premier League winners Manchester City are the third elite level club, with 85 ATK, 85 MID, 86 DEF and a 5* rating.

They have a really solid defence, with the lowest rated being 85 OVR Kyle Walker.

Superstar Kevin De Bruyne will run the midfield, allowing whoever you choose in attack to flourish.

Take on and beat one of these top-level teams with Longford Town to earn some big street cred.

Their pathetic rating of ATK 55, MID 55, DEF 55 will give any player a challenging time to play.


Bonus Teams

If you want to all out with footballing ability, you can choose to use the Soccer Aid team.

Their squad is made up of world-class icons from the past and includes the likes of Pele, Maradona and Zidane, among many others.

The team rating of 94 ATK, 93 MID, 92 DEF and 5* will give you the ability to dismantle most opposition, or at least give you the biggest helping hand available.

You could also use the Adidas All-Star team, which is made up of current top players.


With 89 ATK, 86 MID, 85 DEF and 5* most other teams can't compete.

A midfield three of Kante, Goretzka and Pogba can dominate the ball, plus there's a little man called Messi up top.
