-

Dear FIFA Ultimate Team managers, if you’re looking for cheap Australian A-League Men players to boost your FIFA 22 team, here are your best options…

 

1. Jamie Maclaren

Team: Melbourne City

Overall rating: 76

Card: Non-rare gold

Position: Striker

Skill moves: 3/5 stars

Weak foot: 5/5 stars

Melbourne City and Socceroos striker, Jamie Maclaren is the best Australian A-League Men player you could have in your team. With an overall rating of 76, his best attribute is his pace at 81, with his weakest attribute being defence at 38.

Being the best A-League Men player in the game, his shooting statistics are a bit disappointing at 75. But if you’re looking for a cheap striker, the non-rare gold card of Maclaren might just be your perfect fit.

2. Chris Ikonomidis

Team: Melbourne Victory

Overall rating: 72

Card: Non-rare silver

Position: Striker

Skill moves: 3/5 stars

Weak foot: 4/5 stars

Melbourne Victory attacker Chris Ikonomidis comes in to take the title of the second-best Aussie player in the A-League Men for FIFA 22. With an overall rating of 72, the non-rare silver card looks to be quite similar to Maclaren’s.

Ikonomidis’ best asset is his pace at 80 and his worst asset is his defence at 51 – making him a solid pick-up overall for Ultimate Team newbies.

3. Rhyan Grant

Team: Sydney FC

Overall rating: 72

Card: Rare silver

Position: Right back

Skill moves: 3/5 stars

Weak foot: 3/5 stars

With the same overall rating as Chris Ikonomidis, Grant’s card has a shinier gloss to it, indicating it is a rare silver card. However, the card’s statistics don’t quite compare so kindly.

As a right-back, Grant’s worst attribute is his shooting at 62, and his best attribute is his physicality at 82. If you’re in the market for a cheap defender in the A-League Men, Grant is your best option.

4. Mathew Leckie

Team: Melbourne City

Overall rating: 71

Card: Non-rare silver

Position: Right Wing

Skill moves: 3/5 stars

Weak foot: 4/5 stars

With an overall rating of 71, Mathew Leckie comes in as the fourth-best Australian A-League Men player in the game.

As a winger, it’s not surprising that Leckie’s best attribute is his pace at 81, which is the same as Maclaren. His worst attribute is his defence which sits at 51. However, when Leckie’s best and worst attributes are compared to Maclaren’s, it seems as though Leckie’s card is the better one.

Could this mean Leckie’s card is secretly a dark horse for Ultimate Team managers who own him?

5. Curtis Good

Team: Melbourne City

Overall rating: 69

Card: Non-rare silver

Position: Centre-back

Skill moves: 2/5 stars

Weak foot: 3/5 stars

Although Good’s FIFA 22 player card is ranked as the fifth-best Australian A-League Men’s card in the game, a significant drop in attributes and rating is evident.

Good’s overall rating is 69 and his worst attribute is unsurprisingly his shooting which sits at a measly 35. His best attribute isn’t great either. With his physical attribute being fixed at 76, his best attribute is his average at best. Good’s card would only be beneficial to any Ultimate Team managers who are looking for a cheap upgrade from a bronze defender.
