BIG GAME PLAYER - Sterling has really shown up at Euro 2020

England winger Raheem Sterling found himself out of favour with City boss Guardiola towards the end of the season.

There is no doubting Sterling's quality, but if he is not starting week in week out for his club then we can't see him maintaining an 88 OVR.

However, his superb form at Euro 2020 could be enough to change EA's mind!

We are going for an 87 OVR in FIFA 22, judging from his club form, although due to his form at Euro 2020, we could be very wrong indeed!

Deadeye - this is probably the best option for Raz, as it provides a +9 shooting boost along with a +7 passing boost.

Marksman - if you're looking to maximise Sterling's dribbling abilities, then this is the Chemistry Style for you, giving a +8 dribbling and shooting boost, along with +5 physicality.

Hawk - a Hawk is a go-to Chemistry style for any attacker, providing Sterling with a +4 pace boost, +7 shooting boost while also upping his physicality by 5.

Hunter - if you want to max out the Englishman's pace, then a Hunter is for you - giving a +7 shooting boost while boosting Sterling's acceleration and sprint speed to 99.

Raheem Sterling in Career Mode

In FIFA 21 Raheem Sterling had a potential of 88 OVR.

We think his potential could be either 88 OVR or 89 OVR in FIFA 22, judging by how well he has played at Euro 2020, alog=ng with the fact that he is still only 26 years old.

If you want to sign Sterling in FIFA 22 Career Mode, he'll cost a fair chunk of cash!

We expect Sterling to be valued at around £80-£90 million in FIFA 22, with a wage of £230k per week.
