FIFA 23: EA is looking for the team of the year

Team of the Year is a tradition in FIFA Ultimate Team, recognizing the supposedly best players of the past year with exceptionally strong cards. EA now has FIFA 23 nominations announced and, as expected, some present and absent players cause a lot of contention in the community.

FIFA Ultimate Team: Community quarrels over nominations

Overall, EA 100 players nominated for Team of the Year, which always consists of 11 players plus a twelfth man. Gamers can choose for their favorites on the EA website Vote from 5 p.m. on January 10th. However, the pre-selection has already triggered hot discussions on Twitter and Reddit.

When it comes to defenders, many commentators understandably wonder why Niklas Süle, Jeremie Frimpong and Virgil Van Dijk made it into the selection this year – while Antonio Rüdiger didn’t. In midfield, the nomination of Sadio Mané causes a shake of the head, as he was actually called up primarily as an attacker. Up front, many question the justification for Liverpool’s Darwin Nunez, who has not always impressed so far this season, especially when it comes to scoring goals. Additionally leads the non-nomination of superstar Cristiano Ronaldo to discussions – although his recent move to Saudi Arabia should be proof enough of his declining quality.

  • “They try to favor Premier League defenders. No Rüdiger and no Alaba is a real shame.” (Reddit user The-Young-French-Fwd)
  • “A lot of them deserve it, but there’s still a lot of players who just made it because they’re big names.”Reddit user Akame_xo)
  • “Nunez making the list is going to really annoy a lot of people lmao.”Reddit user Ant1202)
