Everyone loves a wonderkid! From Freddy Adu (remember him?) to Cristiano Ronaldo, all the way up to Kylian Mbappe, nothing captures a football fan's imagination quite like a highly talented prodigy.
And that's exactly what makes FIFA career mode so great. There is nothing more satisfying than rooting out a diamond in the rough, paying peanuts, and turning him into a world-beating superstar. This year is no different, and with football fans now well invested into this year's edition, we have put together a list of the best players in their positions under the age of 20 that you may have missed in FIFA 18's Career Mode.
Get that shortlist out! Editors' Picks • • • • We have updated this list to reflect the winter upgrades following the January transfer window, which have seen some of the world's best teenage talent get boosts to their overall and potential scores in FIFA 18.

Alban Lafont just turned 19 in January, but he has played over 100 times for Toulouse, and could reach an 89 rating in FIFA 18. Under-20 goalkeeper Dean Henderson spent 2017-18 on loan at Shrewsbury Town from , proving himself as a quality young shot stopper. There are a number of excellent teenage prospects that are valued at less than £1m, including Benfica's Mile Svilar and Christian Fruchtl of Bayern Munich, who may not be ready to play immediately, but have fantastic potential.

Ajax youngster Matthijs de Ligt leads the way, with a potential ability of 89, while Timothy Fosu-Mensah, who was loaned out to Crystal Palace from Manchester United, could become one of the very best defenders in England.
Real Madrid's young Spanish defender Jesus Vallejo received a boost in the winter ratings refresh, and can now reach the same rating as De Ligt, having seen his potential increase from FIFA 18's initial launch rating of 85 to 89.
Similarly, Dayot Upamecano has been excellent in the for RB Leipzig this season following his transfer from Red Bull Salzburg in January 2017.
His form in 2017-18 has seen him get a huge upgrade from 69 to 75, which has a knock-on effect on his in-game potential. Elsewhere, looks like a potential career mode bargain, starting out with a value of just over £1 million at Fulham, with a potential rating of 86, while could have a central defensive partnership for the ages, with Juan Foyth and Cameron Carter-Vickers potentially reaching 86 and 85 respectively.

Youri Tielemans, formerly of , is a young midfielder with bags of potential, as evidenced by this very list. He won't come cheap in career mode, with a base value of just over £20m, but any outlay will be worth it - he could reach a rating of 90. The Bundesliga is also blessed with an impressive array of wide players, with Christian Pulisic, Kai Havertz and Leon Bailey all capable of being some of the game's best talents.
Dani Ceballos and Alena could soon have a rivalry of the ilk of Ronaldo and Lionel Messi in Spanish Clasicos, as they can reach ratings of 88 and 87 respectively. A number of players in English football could reach the level of 86.
Ruben Neves from Championship winners Wolves, is one of the highest-rated players in Europe, while Richarlison's stellar debut season in the has seen him receive a massive upgrade in ratings. Josh Onomah - an English talent - spent 2017-18 on loan at Aston Villa from Tottenham, while Wilfred Ndidi could become a star at Leicester City. FIFA 18: BEST YOUNG FORWARDS NAME AGE CLUB PO.

Superstar striker Mbappe has the world at his feet after joining PSG on loan - ahead of a massive transfer this summer - and now has highest potential rating in the game, with Gianluigi Donnarumma getting his potential ceiling downgraded to 93 in the winter ratings refresh.
Malcom also plays in , but may not be at Bordeaux for much longer in real life or FIFA 18 due to his massive potential. The Brazilian winger is wanted by , Tottenham and Bayern Munich, and will be hugely in demand in FIFA as well thanks to his potential score of 91.
Gabriel Jesus, 's Brazilian sensation, is another fantastic attacking prospect, while Ousmane Dembele could well turn out to be the best possible successor to Neymar, who headed to PSG before Mbappe. Manchester United's Angel Gomes, at the age of 16, is the youngest player on the list, and could become one of the best Premier League players in the game.
Further down the line, Jadon Sancho - formerly of Manchester City - is a superb prospect at Borussia Dortmund, while Emre Mor and Martin Odegaard are still highly regarded despite false starts at their respective clubs.

Published on by 55 Comments With FIFA 18 Early Access on Xbox dropping today and pre-order access starting across the board on the 26th September, it’s about time you started to think about your first Career Mode play through. And what better way to do so than with Futhead's Top Career Mode Tips! If you’ve missed any of our FIFA 18 Career Mode coverage to date, catch-up with all the new features . Revive a fallen giant If you’re a Career Mode fan I’m sure you’ve already read countless “best clubs to use in Career Mode” guides over the years, which definitely have their merits.
But more often than not their criteria for recommendation is based around either an abnormally large transfer budget, a brilliant set of young players, or high quality loan players returning for season two. Those are all great things to have in their own right but for me, I want to have a bit of narrative running though my Career Mode experience. Which is why you should consider reviving a fallen giant, of which there are many littering the second and even third tiers of FIFA 18’s confirmed.
Leeds United – Once Champions League semi-finalists and winners of the old Division 1 just before the Premier League era began. Leeds United have since lurched from one disaster to another, with the days of Bowyer, Kewell and Viduka nothing more than a distant memory.
They seem however to be back on track this season, but with a Premier League promotion push beckoning, can you take Leeds beyond that and back to the top table of European football? Parma – After their relegation to Serie D following liquidation, Parma have since secured multiple promotions in quick succession which now see them back in Serie B, just one step away from the Italian top flight.
Everyone remembers the famous Parma side of 1999 which contained Buffon, Cannavaro, Thuram, Sousa and Crespo so can you rebuild a new squad befitting of those legendary players of the 90's? Nottingham Forest – There aren’t many clubs outside their current top flight which can boast one major European trophy let alone two, but under the management of Brian Clough that’s exactly what Nottingham Forest did in 1979 and again in 1980.
In recent history Forest have existed outside of the top flight since 1999 and are in need of fresh managerial blood to get them back where they belong. Dusseldorf – With a population of near 600,000 people (bigger than Dortmund) and a 55,000 seater stadium, Fortuna Dusseldorf are the very definition of a sleeping German giant.
Everything is in place for success off the pitch and yet on it, Dusseldorf have only spent one season in the Bundesliga top tier since 1997. That’s just not good enough for a club of this size and it needs correcting. Other notable mentions: Aston Villa, Sheffield Wednesday, Hertha Berlin, Kaiserslautern, Palermo. There’s of course the “Galatico” method of playing (and buying) in Career Mode and if that’s your thing, good luck to you.
But if you’re looking for something a little bit different this year one of these scenarios could be for you. And if you’ve got any scenarios of your own, hit the comments with the back-story of your local club.
Use the Youth Academy If you are planning on using a lower league team in Career Mode, then do not underestimate the power of the Youth Academy. The feature itself may have been neglected over the years but don’t let its shoddy menu design fool you. It can still add plenty of value to your team both on and off the pitch. The first step is to get your Youth Scout recruited, and send him out on his first assignment.
Recruiting the scout removes funds from your Transfer budget, so make sure you do it first otherwise you’ll know no doubt spend it. The region they scout doesn’t matter too much but I’d recommend looking for “Technically Gifted” players, as they tend to yield the best rewards later on. After a month you’ll receive a scout report which will list potential players to sign. Ignore anyone with a predicted overall less than 80, and if you see anyone with 92+ grab them immediately, regardless of position.
Once they’re signed try to leave them in the academy if you can. They will continue to develop there, and their predicted OVR can change. If you move them in your main squad early, some of the development burden will be transferred to you. After that if they’re good enough you can play them, or sell them to boost your transfer funds. Either way, after a season or two the Youth Academy will have paid back its initial investment considerably.
Use the new Sell On fees To go with the Youth Academy section above, FIFA 18 now gives you the ability to add future sell-on clauses to the contracts of players you’re selling. Which as you can imagine for youth players could result in some large future windfalls should they go-on to fulfil their potential elsewhere. So if you do decide to sell a player from your youth squad, or academy then make you insert the new sell-on clause.
Even if you can only negotiate 10%, that could represent millions to your budget in a few seasons time. Setup multiple team sheets It’s been a few years since FIFA’s Team Management UI got a welcome overhaul, and that process has continued for FIFA 18 with Quick Subs the latest new option for improved Career Mode squad management.
However, something I always do when starting a brand new save is setup multiple Team Sheets for my club. So if you want to change from a 4-4-2 to a 3-4-3 quickly, with differing tactics you should build multiple Team Sheets from the Team Management menu. It's super easy to setup and super quick to swap between them once done. I also setup a version filled with my back-up and Youth Players too. That way when the League Cup comes around I can instantly change my entire team without editing my neat and tidy 1st team setups.
This requires a bit of time investment up front, (10-15 mins max) and you may have to tweak the personnel on the fly if your pre-selected players are suspended or injured. But over the long haul (which is why we all play Career Mode after all) the time spent pays itself back many times over.
Be specific when scouting The scouting system in Career Mode is far from perfect, but if you can find the right balance with your search criteria you can find some genuinely great players you may have either forgotten existed, or didn’t know about at all. The only issue is finding the right balance because it’s very east to be too open (i.e.
searching for a promising striker) and then getting flooded by search results containing every young striker in existence. Tuning out the crap takes a bit of work but if you search off three criteria you’ll normally get closer to your mark. So if you’re looking for a Striker, try and include two other criteria from the right hand column; Pacey, Prolific, Promising, Tall, etc.
It’s not an exact science but if you play around with the options can be zero in on niche players quite easily. Also, don’t forget if you have a known player you want to find you can search for them manually by name and save yourself the hassle. But, I’d advise using both features as a hidden gem may just appear. Other tips • Don’t neglect Board Objectives.
Some will need to be managed all season long, so keep checking up of your progress if you want to keep your job. • If you don’t wish to see the new Transfer Negotiation cut scenes every time you do a deal, you can delegate negotiate via a member of staff to keep things more like FIFA 17.
• If players are moaning about lack of playing time you can just ignore them. Don’t feel you have to act on every single request. • Check on young talented Free Agents as soon as the mode starts. If you can pick up a player on a free, train them a bit and then sell them on, it’s all profit. • If you’re struggling with the match grind, you can Sim matches as you see fit. Oh, and don’t forget to buy low, sell high.

29 Sep 2017 by Best Free Kick Takers in FIFA 18 Just like in real life, there are few things in FIFA 18 that are more satisfying that scoring a free kick. It’s often a challenge to even win a free kick, when you get one you better make it count.
With that in mind I’ve compiled a list of the top 25 free kick takers in FIFA 18. This list is based on a custom ranking system using the three key attributes; Free Kick Accuracy, Curve and Shot Power. 25. Rasmus Elm Kicking off our list is Kalmar FF’s Swedish midfielder Rasmus Elm.
With free kick accuracy of 85 and 85 curve, his stats are great for a 75 overall rated player. His 78 shot power isn’t phenomenal but his accuracy and curve stats make him very reliable inside 25 yards. At 29 he’s not really one for the future but could be a solid squad player for your team. 24. Balazs Dzsudzsak With 85 accuracy and 84 curve, he’d be below Elm in our ranking if not for his 84 shot power. Dzsudzsak plays for UEA club Al Wahda FC, but their absence from the game means he is conveniently a free agent.
At 30 years old a 78 rated player with four star skill moves and weak foot ability could be a smart addition to your club. Bonus: He’s also a left footer. 23. José Sosa Currently on loan at Trabzonspor from Milan, Sosa creeps into 23rd place here mainly for his ability to curve the ball ( 86). His accuracy is still very good at 85 but his 79 shot power lets him down a little. Another option to consider for close range free kicks though. If you’re not playing as Trabzonspor or Milan and are thinking about waiting around for him, be aware he is 32 in game so could start to decline (depending on how the game handles that this year).
22. Yaya Touré He’s scored some pretty special efforts during his time with Manchester City so it’s not hugely surprising to see him make our list. Another player who is getting on a bit but still has great stats. His accuracy is very good at 86 and his 82 curve ability should see the ball around most walls. While I’ve not weighted shot power too heavily, his 86 rating can come in handy – I know lots of you are power free kick fans. 21. Selçuk İnan At 32 years old, İnan might be dismissed by many career mode players as ‘too old’ but this list proves that the ability to strike a dead ball doesn’t disappear with age.
Starting with shot power, a rating of 80 is solid, if not spectacular. His curve ability is slightly better at 83 but the number that gets him into this list is his 87 FK accuracy.
20. Lasse Schöne Don’t be misled by the Ajax midfielder’s 77 overall rating, his dead ball stats are impressive. His 86 FK accuracy is very decent to start with, 85 curve and 83 shot power push him ahead of the previous contenders – a good all-rounder. 19. Christian Eriksen While he’s currently going through something of a set piece dry spell for Spurs, his free kick ability on FIFA has remained steady.
Just like last year, his 87 FK accuracy and 85 curve make him deadly from most areas outside the box. His shot power has actually increased to 80 this year (was 78 last year), so that’s an improvement at least.
His overall rating has increased to 87 this year but his potential of 91 makes him an irresistible option for career mode this year. 18. Keisuke Honda Honda is well known for his impressive set piece ability and this has been reflected in FIFA for years. He’s currently plying his trade in the Mexican league for Pachuca but could be a great option for your team – especially if you’re in need of a left footer.
Excellent curve ability at 86 as you would expect for Honda, while his 86 accuracy is just below Eriksen’s. However, his 84 shot power makes him a little more versatile. 17. Gareth Bale The Welsh Wizard is very adept at set pieces and watching his ‘knuckleball’ technique is just wonderful. Solid accuracy at 85 and his curve ability is even better at 86.
What pushed him up to 17th place this year was his 91 shot power, not quite the highest in the game but comfortably highest on this list. He’s also a leftie, but I’m sure I don’t need to tell you that. 16. James Rodríguez Another leftie, and great all round stats for the Colombian. FK accuracy of 86, 87 curve and 86 shot power are not to be sniffed at. 86 OVR currently but his 89 potential means those numbers could easily go up. The only issue with him is that he’s currently on a two year loan deal.
So unless you’re playing as Madrid or Bayern, you’re not going to be able to get your hands on him until 2019. 15. Anderson Talisca Another young player with bags of potential (84, he starts out at a respectable 79), Talisca could be a great addition to your club for the next few years. Left footed and boasting 86 curve, 84 shot power but most importantly 87 FK accuracy – this is the reason he edges in front of Rodríguez. Currently on loan at Beşiktaş from Benfica.
14. Wesley Sneijder Always a name that comes up when debating players that never quite lived up to their potential, Sneijder still has bags of technical ability and this is reflected in his stats again this year. His 86 FK accuracy and 86 shot power means fiercely driven shots that regularly hit their mark. Add 88 curve ability into the mix and you can deceive even the best goalkeepers. Even though he is 33 at this point, a 83-rated CAM could be a great addition to most teams – as long as you’re not too reliant on pace.
13. Shunsuke Nakamura Probably not a name you’re familiar with. Probably because he’s 39 years old and is only rated 71 overall. For those of you that haven’t already skipped to number 12, his shot power is pretty average at 79 but 88 FK accuracy and 87 curve is pretty incredible for a player of his overall rating. Providing you’re not managing a top side, Nakamura could be a great option from the bench.
12. Marvin Plattenhardt In my opinion, Plattenhardt is one of the most interesting options on this list. Currently rated 78 but he has the potential to grow to 80 (or more), so a great option for a lot of mid-high level sides. His 79 shot power isn’t anything special, but 85 curve is great and 89 FK accuracy is even better. The cherry on the top?
He’s a full back, which means he’s more likely to be on the pitch for the full 90 minutes compared to attacking players that people tend to sub more often. 11. Mehmet Ekici The Turkish playmaker’s lowest stat of the three that we are focusing on is his 85 shot power. After that you should be interested in not only his 87 FK accuracy but also his 88 curve ability.
That’s the highest curve rating on the list so far (tied with Wesley Sneijder). At 27 years old he’s not exactly one for the future but shouldn’t start declining yet either. 10. Memphis Depay Blistering free kicks were part of the reason Depay looked like such an incredible player back in the Eredivisie. After a disappointing stint in the Premier League for Manchester United, he’s currently trying to get his career back on track at Lyon.
If you’ve ever seen him strike a dead ball in real life you know that accuracy and power should be his two strengths, they both come in at an awesome 88.
In comparison, his 85 curve ability will look a little low but is still very good. Currently 79 overall but a potential rating of 84 could see these stats rise even higher. 9. Sebastian Giovinco The ex-Juve man has been with Toronto FC since 2015 and even at 30 years old, still possesses some great all round stats (including pace).
His 79 shot power might be a turn off for you if you prefer the power free kick. However, his 89 FK accuracy and 86 curve make him a menacing opponent when standing over a set piece. 8. Sejad Salihović If you’re willing to sacrifice FK accuracy a little for better all round FK stats, Salihović might be your man. His 87 accuracy isn’t quite as impressive as Giovinco’s, but his 89 curve ability is fantastic.
He’s also better at powering the ball into the net with a shot power ability of 85. He’s no spring chicken, but whisking him away from the Bundesliga could be a good idea for a mid level side. 7. Gylfi Sigurðsson The iceman cometh. After finally moving from the Liberty Stadium to Goodison Park, his set piece stats have improved slightly on last year.
Although his 82 shot power is the least exciting of the three, 89 accuracy and 87 curve make him a very effective free kick specialist. You might also notice that the 83 potential he had last year is now gone, but he could still conceivably exceed that. 6. Miralem Pjanić The Juventus midfielder is the first player on this list whose accuracy rating exceeds 90, his is 91. This is always the number to get excited about.
Hitting the woodwork or having your shot saved isn’t great, but seeing an effort fly high and/or wide is just depressing. At least with the former there’s always a chance of a rebound. His curve ability is also good at 86, even if 78 shot power is a little disappointing.
5. Daniel Parejo After telling you that FK accuracy is the most important, Parejo might seem like a step back with only a 90 rating. His 87 curve and 86 shot power is the reason he’s above Pjanić in this list. Side by side, +1 curve and +8 shot power more than makes up for -1 FK accuracy in my opinion.
At 82 overall, he could be a smart transfer if you can convince Valencia to part with him. 4. Lionel Messi A player who needs no introduction. A 90 FK accuracy rating might make you question why he’s ahead of Pjanić, but he also has 89 curve and 85 shot power.
He’ll always be the superior option in career mode, even if it would take a huge offer to get him away from Barcelona. Not to mention the insane wage demands. 3. Dimitri Payet Now found in Ligue 1 after forcing a move back to Olympique de Marseille. Payet is another player that has probably already reached his peak, but you might not care after seeing his stats.
Don’t be too disappointed by his 78 shot power, you’ll get over it. FK accuracy of 91 and 80 curve is a fair representation of the man’s outrageous set piece ability. 2. Andrea Pirlo No Pirlo, No Party.
Do you even care if he’s 38? Truly a master of free kicks over his fantastic career, head over to for proof if you’re a bit young to remember. He won’t be splitting the crossbar in half with his 75 shot power, but precision is where he excels. His 93 FK accuracy and 92 curve is just incredible, more than enough to have defensive walls shuffling in anticipation.
1. Hakan Çalhanoğlu Finally we arrive at #1 – Mr. Hakan Çalhanoğlu. After a three year stint at Bayer Leverkusen, he moved to AC Milan this summer. Only 23, rated 79 overall and with a potential of 83 – he represents a very attractive option in career mode. Equalling Pirlo’s impressive stats of 93 FK accuracy and 92 curve, he edges it on age/potential anyway. However, shot power is still useful in a lot of situations.
His 87 rating rounds off his stats and makes him the number one free kick taker in the game. Top Free Kick Takers: Closing Thoughts I must say I was surprised to see Ronaldo’s stats means he’s some way off being included on this list.
He’s not bad at free kicks, it just feels strange. Especially considering you take a free kick with Ronaldo the first time you boot the game up. Of course there will be other players that can grow (or be trained) into better FK takers. Perhaps I’ll save that for another post if there is enough interest.
THE HISTORY OF FIFA CAREER MODE!! (FIFA 2005 - FIFA 18)
