FIFA 22 Ratings: Best Brazilian Players

Discover who EA Sports deems to be Brazil’s best players in FIFA 22.


After losing to Argentina on home turf in the Copa America final over the summer, Brazil will be looking to bounce back in next year’s World Cup in Qatar. It’s been 20 years since they last held the World Cup and the pressure will be on Brazil’s stars to reclaim their former glory.

Beyond Neymar, who is Brazil’s second all-time goal scorer, the Brazilian squad is arguably lacking that flair and talent of previous teams. That inevitably means that there is an opportunity for the younger players to have an impact and write themselves into Brazil’s footballing history book.


In this article are the best Brazilian players in FIFA 22. We will begin with an in-depth look at the top seven players. At the foot of the article is a table with all the best Brazilian players in FIFA 22.

Neymar Jr. (91 OVR – 91 POT)

Team: Paris Saint-Germain
Best Position:
LW
Age:
28
Overall Rating:
91
Weak Foot:
Five-Star
Best Attributes:
96 agility, 95 dribbling, 95 ball control

An injury-riddled season for Neymar last campaign may have contributed to Paris Saint-Germain missing out on a Ligue 1 title. However, he still managed nine goals and six assists in 18 games.

For the national side, another two goals for Neymar in the Copa America cemented him as Brazil’s second all-time goal scorer. Now just nine behind all-time goal scorer Pele, with hopefully a healthy number of years to catch him.


An attacking threat from either wing, Neymar Jr. boasts five-star skill moves and five-star weak foot abilities. His 95 dribbling and 95 ball control along with 93 composure and 90 vision mean he can take the ball past defenders and set up a teammate to score, even when under pressure.

Alisson (89 OVR – 90 POT)

Team: Liverpool
Best Position:
GK
Age:
27
Overall Rating:
89
Weak Foot:
Three-Star
Best Attributes:
90 positioning, 89 reflexes, 86 diving

Alisson’s numbers took a hit last season as Liverpool failed to achieve the heights of the 18/19 and 19/20 campaigns. The Brazilian goalkeeper conceded 32 goals compared to 23 goals and kept 10 clean sheets compared to 15 the previous season. However, Alisson did score his only professional goal in emphatic style in extra time as Liverpool edged West Brom 2-1.


For country, Alisson was seemingly dropped and replaced by Premier League rival goalkeeper Ederson in the Copa America as Brazil fell at the final hurdle losing 1-0 to Argentina. All that being said, Alisson is still one of the world’s best goalkeepers with his FIFA 22 rating all the evidence you need.

Alisson is one of the best goalkeepers in FIFA 22. His 90 positioning and 89 reflexes give him cat-like reactions between the posts. The only area of note when playing with Alisson is that he has an 84 kicking rating and he only has a three-star weak foot.

Casemiro (89 OVR – 89 POT)

Team: Real Madrid
Best Position:
CDM
Age:
29
Overall Rating:
89
Weak Foot:
Three-Star
Best Attributes:
91 aggression, 90 strength, 89 stamina

Casemiro had the best goalscoring campaign of his career last season, bagging six goals in La Liga as Real Madrid just lost out to rivals Atletico Madrid to come second in the league. However, Casemiro’s greatest asset is his ability to be a rock in front of the Madrid defence.

Casemiro averaged over 2.5 tackles and 2 interceptions per game last season. He took this form into the Copa America scoring a dramatic winner against Columbia in the tenth minute of extra time!

With 91 aggression, 90 strength and 89 stamina, Casemiro is a no-nonsense central defensive midfielder who is difficult to outmuscle and outwork in the middle of the park. His 85 marking, 88 standing tackle, 87 sliding tackle and 87 jumping could allow him to be very effective as a centre back if you wanted to try something different,

Ederson (89 OVR – 91 POT)

Team: Manchester City
Best Position:
GK
Age:
28
Overall Rating:
89
Weak Foot:
Three-Star
Best Attributes:
93 kicking, 88 reflexes, 88 positioning

Ederson kept 19 clean sheets last season, three more than anyone else, as Manchester City strolled to the Premier League title. That brings him to 95 clean sheets from 193 games at the time of writing, an incredible record.

Ederson must feel unlucky after the Copa America. He was chosen to be Brazil’s first-choice keeper in the knockout games where he only conceded one goal. The unlucky aspect coming in the form of the only goal he conceded was the winning goal in the final against Argentina.

Ederson excels at distributing the ball with his feet. As an 89 rated goalkeeper, the Brazilian is proficient in all areas but his 93 kicking ability helps him stand out from other similar rated goalkeepers.

Marquinhos (87 OVR – 90 POT)

Team: Paris Saint-Germain
Best Position:
CB
Age:
26
Overall Rating:
87
Weak Foot:
Three-Star
Best Attributes:
92 jumping, 89 marking, 89 standing tackle

An injury in the latter half of last season kept Marquinhos out of the PSG lineup, but he came back to bag a brace in the penultimate game of the season as the Parisians missed out on the Ligue 1 title on the last day.

Marquinhos has played all but one game in the last two Copa America’s for Brazil. He only played one minute in the 2018 World Cup, a stat he’ll surely change in the 2022 World Cup in Qatar as Brazil’s certified first-team centre back.

Marquinhos bucks the FIFA trends of slow centre backs with 81 acceleration and 81 sprint speed. His 92 jumping allows him to be competitive to win any aerial challenge and his 88 interceptions combined with the aforementioned pace, allows him to break up the play effectively.

Fabinho (86 OVR – 88 POT)

Team: Liverpool
Best Position:
CDM
Age:
28
Overall Rating:
86
Skill Moves:
Three-Star
Best Attributes:
90 penalties, 88 stamina, 87 interceptions

A league winner with AS Monaco in 2017 and with Liverpool in 2020, Fabinho excels in the area of the game that doesn’t necessarily catch the eye. His work often goes unnoticed in the middle of the park with not many goals or assists to his name.

For club, Fabinho made the second-hightest number of tackles in Liverpool’s Premier League winning season but Fabinho hasn’t been able to establish a consistent first-team place in the national set-up. He’s only played 17 games for Brazil in six years.

Though not Liverpool’s primary penalty kick taker, Fabinho’s best rating on FIFA 22 is his penalties with 90. His 87 interceptions, 86 reactions and 84 composure allow him to help his team turn the ball over and convert defence into attack effectively.

Thiago Silva (85 OVR – 85 POT)

Team: Chelsea
Best Position:
CB
Age:
37
Overall Rating:
85
Weak Foot:
Three-Star
Best Attributes:
88 interceptions, 88 jumping, 87 marking

Thiago Silva’s career took off when he moved to AC Milan from Fluminense in 2009. He had just made his Brazil debut and was now poised to make his mark in one of Europe’s big leagues.

Since then, Silva has won the Italian league with Milan, the French league seven times with PSG, and this summer won the Champions League with Chelsea. He also has 98 caps for Brazil, eighth on Brazil’s all-time capped players.

At 37-years-old, Thiago Silva may not have the pace he once had with 52 acceleration and 54 sprint speed, but his defensive ability still stands out. His 88 interceptions and 87 marking show his intelligence defensively, whilst his 88 jumping and 81 head accuracy make him effective in both boxes.
