Strength out wide is becoming more and more important in the modern game, but this has always been the case with FIFA games.
Get a speedy fella on the wing and opposing fullbacks just won't be able to cope. Get a peach of a ball into the box for your favourite forward to nod in, and it's the most satisfying thing in all of football.
Here's the best wingers in FIFA 22 Career Mode. We're basing this list on current ability, potential ability and longevity in your FIFA career. No one wants a one-season wonder, so as much as Lionel Messi is indeed the best player in the world, we won't be including him in this list. We're looking more for reliable options for the future of your club, who'll continue to dominate for at least a few years to come.

Juve's Chiesa caused England serious issues during the Euros, and if you can get him onto your squad he'll cause problems for your opponents too. He's seriously quick, can pull off some wild skill moves, and is extremely difficult to tackle with his dribbling and ball control ability. He's only getting better too.
You can't go wrong with Raheem Sterling. He's still just 26 years old, and it feels like he's been an amazing winger to play for absolutely ages. He's even got a bit more potential to squeeze out! You all know Raheem Sterling: he's extremely quick and his acceleration will zip him past defenders before they know what's hit them, he can whip a nice ball into the box or go it alone, and his finishing isn't to be sniffed at. Playable on either side of your wing attack, Sterling is just brilliant.
Ferran Torres of Manchester City can really do it all, as he's demonstrated in Pep's system. Hopefully you can make him do the same in your system too. Playable out wide or up front, Ferran Torres is a great dribbler, solid finisher, and crucially: a young superstar. He's about to get a lot better too. Torres isn't the most physical player, but that's the only weakness made up for with literally everything else he has in his locker.
After a storming start to Manchester United's real-life 2021/22 season, Mason Greenwood should be on everyone's radar as a brilliant young winger to dominate for over a decade in-game. He's got 5 star weak foot, is extremely versatile with his ability to play up-front if the need arises, and offers the chance to sign a complete winger who can do it all.
Dembele is a classic winger. Acceleration and sprint speed to beat his man, good crossing to get a nice ball into the box, and great dribbling to keep hold of the ball while running towards the byline. He's already at Barcelona, but at 24 years of age he's approaching the best years of his career. For an immediate impact, look no further.
Goncalves isn't the speedy, old-school winger you might be looking for. Instead, you're getting a deeper player - more of a deep-lying playmaker who's effective out wide. He's a great dribbler and good passer of the ball, but the main bonus for Pedro Goncalves is his shooting. He can finish chances when you push him forwards, and has a whole lot of room to grow over the next few years he's on your team.
Jeremy Doku isn't the best player in the world right now. However, he's already a 77 overall, so can make it into most squads, at least as a backup from the bench. Also, at 19 he'll be improving a ridiculous amount over the next few years. He's also amazingly fast - just watch as defenders are left stranded by simply knocking the ball past them. His crossing needs a bit of work to dominate at the highest level, but outside of that, Doku is already an absolute delight.
Ajax's Antony is a young superstar. A future Brazilian international, he offers pace, ball control, and crucially: 5 star skills. He's even a decent free kick and corner taker, filling a potential gap in your squad. At just 21, he could be a star out wide for your team for over a decade.
Ansu Fati will be tough to take away from FC Barcelona, but if you can, do. At just 18 he's got a long, long career ahead of him, and if you find a way to slot him into your squad and get that game experience, he'll turn into a club legend in no time. Let's see if you can get him to live up to Messi's number 10.
Moussa Diaby will be an 88 overall in a few short years. He’s up there with the very best in the game, and it’s easy to see why. His pace is absolutely ridiculous, and he's probably the best player to go for if you're looking for an utter speedster. There are a few drawbacks - his 2 star weak foot makes him a bit tough to use with a versatile playstyle, but in the right system, Diaby is a genuine treat.
Here's a bit of a more rogue choice. Christos Tzolis is a 19 year old Greek winger for Norwich City. He can play on either flank, or even up front. He's fast, and a decent dribbler, but rough around the edges. With 4 star skill moves and weak foot, you can see the potential start to shine through. Sure, at just 74 overall, he might not make it into a big team's starting XI right away, but give him time and space to shine and you won't regret it.
We don't really need to say too much here, but Jadon Sancho has some of the best dribbling on the game, five star skills and an eye for goal. Playing with the 21-year-old on FIFA might get you some more luck than he's had in real life so far at Manchester United.
The Senegalese winger is one of the fastest players in the game, with both acceleration and sprint speed of 94 and four star skill moves, he is A LOT of fun to use on the game. Sarr will no doubt get a big move in future, why don't you try him out at a big side on Career Mode and see how he fits in? We predict pretty, pretty well.
