The countdown is on, with potential new mechanics coming from this promo.

Although we have no confirmation on who will feature, you can find some likely candidates here.


What is a "wonderkid"?

We are classifying wonderkids as teenagers at the beginning of a save on FIFA 22.

Therefore, Erling Haaland and Joao Felix, who are both 21, are ineligible for this list.

Pedri (OVR 81 - POT 91)

At the start of the 2020/21 season, you probably wouldn't have heard of Pedri, but he's now a regular starter for Barcelona and Spain aged just 18.

The youngster had just one season of professional football under his belt, for Las Palmas in the Segunda Division, before making the £6.5 million move to Barca.


Ansu Fati (OVR 76 - POT 90)

Ansu Fati burst onto the scene with eight goals in his first season in Barcelona colours, but his playing time has been a bit more limited under Ronald Koeman.

The Spanish international struggled with form and fitness last term, but now that he has the number 10 jersey - he is ready to follow in Lionel Messi's footsteps.


Ryan Gravenberch (OVR 78 - POT 90)

Mathijs de Ligt, Frenkie de Jong, Christian Eriksen - the Ajax production line is quite something, with Ryan Gravenberch likely to be the next academy graduate to shine in Europe.

Manchester United and Barcelona are said to be after his signature, but at this stage, it looks as if the youngster will complete at least one more season in Holland.


Florian Wirtz (OVR 78 - POT 89)

A potential superstar in the making, the German is already contributing with goals and assists in the Bundesliga for Bayer Leverkusen.

Great on the ball and very agile, he's just what you want for a tricky CAM.


Jude Bellingham (OVR 79 - POT 89)

We all thought it would be a couple of seasons before Jude Bellingham was given regular opportunities at Borussia Dortmund.

He had other ideas, with the England man picking up over 30 appearances in just his second season of professional football, and making the Three Lions Euro 2020 squad.


Eduardo Camavinga (OVR 78 - POT 89)

Aged just 18, Eduardo Camavinga already has a fantastic reputation, and we can't wait to see how the young French international fairs at Real Madrid.

The midfielder typifies the rebuild going on at Los Blancos, with the £25 million man set to be taking the field alongside the 23-year-old Fede Valverde, 21-year-old Vinicius Jr and 20-year-old Rodrygo.


Mason Greenwood (OVR 78 - POT 89)

Mason Greenwood was a revelation last season for Manchester United, scoring 17 goals aged just 18.

The England international did have a sticky period last season - but looks to have put that behind him, and now he can look forward to learning off Cristiano Ronaldo in training.


Jamal Musiala (OVR 75 - POT 88)

The one that got away - Jamal Musiala is likely going to be rued by England fans for the next decade or so.

The Bayern Munich youngster, despite playing 16 times for the Three Lions at youth level, has decided to represent Germany after breaking into the Bayern Munich first team in 2021.


Noni Madueke (OVR 77 - POT 88)

Already at 90 PAC, with 83 DRI, Noni will grow into one of the top speedsters on FIFA 22.

At 6'0" his is also very agile, giving him more of a physical presence than smaller wingers.


Bukayo Saka (OVR 80 - POT 88)

It feels like Buakyo Saka has been around for ages now, with the young Gunner playing over 70 times for Arsenal.

The England international has played anywhere down the left flank as well as a right-winger, with his flexibility another draw in signing the youngster.
