FIFA 21 Career Mode: Best Right Wingers and Right Midfielders (RW & RM)

Need a goalscorer down the flank, or perhaps a player to feed your strikers? Here’re the best RM and RW players in FIFA 21.

In FIFA 21, several of the best players in the game have a primary position of right midfield or right wing, including the highest-rated player of them all.

Stacked with top-class talents of all ages, you’ll be spoiled for choice when trying to reinforce the right side in your Career Mode.

Here, you can find each of the five highest-rated RM and RW players in FIFA 21 featured, as well as a full list of all of the best right-sided midfielders and forwards at the foot of the page.

Lionel Messi (93 OVR)

Team: FC Barcelona
Best Position: RW
Age: 33
Overall Rating: 93
Nationality: Argentine
Skill Moves: Four-Star
Best Attributes: 96 Ball Control, 96 Dribbling, 96 Composure

The 2019/20 campaign marked yet another stunning season for Lionel Messi statistically, with the Barça talisman notching 31 goals and 26 assists in 44 games.

However, a season without silverware had Messi reaching for the exit door, only to stifle every fan of any rich club’s dreams of having the Argentine join their ranks, choosing to remain in Cataluña.

The Barcelona captain comes into FIFA 21 as the best player in the game and, potentially, the best contract expiry signing of 2021.

Messi’s ability is legendary, with his FIFA attribute ratings reflecting as much. The 33-year-old boasts 96 dribbling, 96 ball control, 95 vision, 94 free-kick accuracy, 93 curve, 95 finishing, and 94 long shots.

Mohamed Salah (90 OVR)

Team: Liverpool
Best Position: RW
Age: 28
Overall Rating: 90
Nationality: Egyptian
Skill Moves: Four-Star
Best Attributes: 94 Acceleration, 92 Sprint Speed, 92 Reactions

Identified as a top talent by Chelsea back in 2014, signing the Egyptian from FC Basel for £14.85 million, it took a few years in Italy for him to refine his raw speed and goal-scoring ability.

In 2017, Liverpool picked up Mohamed Salah from AS Roma for what now seems like a bargain, £37.8 million. They’ve gone on to win the Premier League and Champions League, setting up 41 goals, and being a mere hattrick away from a century for the Reds, at the time of writing.

In FIFA 21, Salah boasts a hefty overall rating of 90, helping to form one of the deadliest forward trios in the game, alongside Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mané.

The African winger’s strengths are in his 94 acceleration, 92 strength, 91 finishing, 91 agility, 90 dribbling, and 90 composure.

Ángel Di María (87 OVR)

Team: Paris Saint-Germain
Best Position: RW
Age: 32
Overall Rating: 87
Nationality: Argentine
Skill Moves: Five-Star
Best Attributes: 94 Agility, 88 Vision, 88 Crossing

One of football’s perennial, elite-level playmakers, Ángel Di María has consistently been able to unlock even the trickiest defences from around the world.

Di María’s ability to pass is of the highest level, with the winger teeing-up 93 assists for Paris Saint-Germain, 85 for Real Madrid, 27 for Benfica, and another 12 during a murky 32-game spell for Manchester United.  

The 32-year-old is built as a top-class playmaker in FIFA 21, but also has a high attack work rate and five-star skill moves.

The PSG goal-maker’s best attributes are his 88 vision, 84 positioning, 86 long shots, 88 free-kick accuracy, 88 crossing, 89 curve, 94 agility, and 88 dribbling.

Jadon Sancho (87 OVR)

Team: Borussia Dortmund
Best Position: RM
Age: 20
Overall Rating: 87
Nationality: English
Skill Moves: Five-Star
Best Attributes: 92 Dribbling, 91 Agility, 91 Ball Control

One of the top prospects in world football right now, Jadon Sancho is already on the shortlists of just about every elite-tier club in European football.

Despite only being 20-years-old, the Londoner has already compiled 101 games, 35 goals, and 45 assists for Borussia Dortmund, with 40 of those goal contributions coming in his 44 appearances of last season.

Sancho ranks as the joint-second-best young player in FIFA 21’s Career Mode, coming into the game with a mighty 87 OVR alongside compatriot Trent Alexander-Arnold.

The Borussia Dortmund RM is a very user-friendly player to have in Career Mode, with his 86 acceleration, 91 agility, 91 ball control, 88 short passing, 87 vision, and 92 dribbling being among his best attributes.

Bernardo Silva (87 OVR)

Team: Manchester City
Best Position: RW
Age: 26
Overall Rating: 87
Nationality: Portuguese
Skill Moves: Four-Star
Best Attributes: 94 Agility, 93 Stamina, 92 Ball Control

A member of the wonderkid-powered AS Monaco side that won Ligue 1 in 2016/17, Bernado Silva continues to live up to his potential for Manchester City in the Premier League.

Playing all over the midfield and on either wing, despite being a part of the ever-rotating forward ranks of City, Silva pulled in eight goals and ten assists last season.

The versatile Portuguese’s non-stop running in real life has been noted in the FIFA 21 ratings, with Silva’s top attribute ratings being his 93 stamina, 94 agility, 92 balance, 92 ball control, 92 dribbling, 85 reactions, and 86 short passing.

His 79 finishing, 76 shot power, 76 long shots, and 78 sprint speed don’t lend Silva to being much a scoring threat up top, but his ability to all-but sprint for 90 minutes makes him a useful tool on the right side in Career Mode.
