FIFA 23 National Teams: Leaks report 16 NEW countries set to feature

It is a World Cup year, and we already know that FIFA 23 will contain some form of World Cup content.

We are expecting this year's tournament to feature in FIFA 23 as a free DLC, with a new mode for Ultimate Team a possibility.

Career Mode should also feature a fully licensed World Cup as part of the experience, but there is also news of new national teams arriving in the game too.

New teams

According to reliable FIFA leaker @DonkTrading, 16 new national teams will feature in FIFA 23.

The news should come as little surprise as all 16 new teams have qualified for the World Cup, so they will feature in any licensed World Cup content.

We would love to see all these teams available in kick-off modes, as well as online seasons, and of course, Career Mode.

The new teams set to feature are:


  • Cameroon
  • Ghana
  • Morocco
  • Senegal
  • Tunisia


  • Iran
  • Japan
  • Qatar
  • Saudi Arabia
  • South Korea


  • Croatia
  • Serbia
  • Switzerland

North America

  • Costa Rica

South America

  • Ecuador
  • Uruguay

Still going

FIFA 22 features a reduced list of playable national teams, with no African nations represented in the game.

Only Argentina and Brazil feature from South America, and the Brazilian squad features generic players (although this can be altered in 'edit teams').
