Fastest Attackers in FIFA 22
If you’re looking to build a strong attack in FIFA 22, it’s key your upfront players have enough pace to beat defenders and get themselves into dangerous positions.
Not only that, fast wingers will always be able to put more crosses into the box and give your strikers the opportunities to put it in the back of the net.
|Kylian Mbappe||97||PSG||1.6m – 1.7m|
|Adama Traore||96||Wolverhampton Wanderers||1,500 – 1700|

While having pace upfront is incredibly important, it’s not always necessary in the midfield role.
However, adding one of these players to your starting XI will allow you to break through the opposite team’s defensive lines as well as track back quickly to thwart any counterattacks.

|Alan Saint-Maximin||91||Newcastle United||10,000 – 11,000|
FIFA 22 is filled with fast-paced attackers looking to weave through your defense, that’s why it’s so important you have defenders that can match their speed and retake possession.
While a lot of these players will set you back a lot of coins, they’re definitely a worthy investment.

So, there you have it, those are the fastest players for every position in FIFA 22. While it’s likely most of the top-tier fast players will be out of your budget, consider picking up a cheaper player while you build up your squad.
Pace is such a valuable stat for a team to have in both attack and defense, so make sure your team isn’t lacking speed when you begin building up your FIFA 22 Ultimate Team.
Good luck with building your squad in FIFA 22 and don’t forget to follow us @UltimateTeamUK.
