FIFA 22: Best 5 Star Skillers

We’ve got ALL the best 5 star skillers in FIFA 22.

Skill moves are not only an important facet of dribbling, but they’re also incredibly fun to use in-game. Using skill moves effectively may require more subtle skills such as a ball roll or maybe something more extravagant like a rainbow flick.

Regardless, whatever you need from your player, the best five-star skillers in FIFA 22 have every skill move in the game in their arsenal.

Choosing the best five-star skillers in FIFA 22

This article focuses on the best five-star skillers in the game, with Neymar Jr, Kylian Mbappé, and Cristiano Ronaldo being amongst the highest-rated in FIFA 22.

We have ranked these showboaters based on their overall rating and the fact that they possess both five-star skills and the dribbler trait.

At the bottom of the article, you’ll find a full list of all of the best five-star skillers in FIFA 22.

1. Kylian Mbappé (91 OVR – 95 POT)

Team: Paris Saint-Germain
Age: 22
£198,000 p/w
Value: £166.8 million
Best Attributes: 97 Sprint Speed, 97 Acceleration, 93 Dribbling

As one of the games biggest names in world football, it perhaps shouldn’t be a surprise to see Kylian Mbappé make this list, given his 91 overall and astonishing 95 potential in FIFA 22.

Not only does he have the ability to perform five-star skills, but he has 97 sprint speed and acceleration, and 93 dribbling and finishing. So, he can perform skill moves with blistering pace and bury any chances that he creates for himself with the ball at his feet.

In FIFA 22, he is one of the most overpowered players that you can use, although given his 27 goals and eight assists in Ligue 1 last season, it’s probably fair that he is as dominant as he is in-game. After decimating Ligue 1 with PSG and Monaco, there has been speculation that Mbappé might leave his native France in the near future.

2. Neymar Jr (91 OVR – 91 POT)

Team: Paris Saint-Germain
Age: 29
£232,000 p/w
Value: £110.9 million
Best Attributes: 96 Agility, 95 Ball Control, 95 Dribbling

Mbappé’s PSG teammate, Neymar Jr, can also be categorised as one of the game’s greatest talents, and FIFA 22 clearly shares this view by giving the Brazilian trickster a 91 overall rating.

With 95 dribbling to compliment his five-star skill moves, Neymar is one of the toughest players to tackle. His all-around forward game is exceptional, with none fewer than fifteen attributes being rated at 85 or more, including ball control, acceleration, and composure.

The 29-year-old has enjoyed a career that has seen him recognised as arguably the most talented footballer of his generation, with fans of Barcelona, PSG, but especially Brazil being treated to one-of-a-kind skill by their talismanic winger. His record-breaking €222 million transfer will forever be a part of history alongside the rest of Neymar’s domestic and international career.

3. Cristiano Ronaldo (91 OVR – 91 POT)

Team: Manchester United
Age: 36
£232,000 p/w
Value: £38.7 million
Best Attributes: 95 Finishing, 95 Jumping, 95 Composure

For many, Cristiano Ronaldo is the greatest player of all time. Regardless of who you ask, there isn’t any denying his impact on revolutionising the game with his trademark skilful approach to dribbling early on in his career, hence his five-star skills and 91 overall rating in FIFA 22.

The 88 dribbling and five-star skill moves are only one facet of Ronaldo’s game, which has evolved over the years. Now, his skillset in FIFA includes 95 finishing, 93 long shots, and 88 sprint speed. Not only is Ronaldo an eye-catching forward, but he’s also a fiercely clinical one too.

After romantically returning to English football with his former side Manchester United, Ronaldo remains one of the best footballers in the world despite being 36-years-old at the beginning of Career Mode saves. Prising him away from the red side of Manchester will be tough, but if you can do it, you’ll have one of the all-time greats in your squad.

4. Jadon Sancho (87 OVR – 91 POT)

Team: Manchester United
Age: 21
£129,000 p/w
Value: £100.2 million
Best Attributes: 92 Dribbling, 91 Agility, 90 Balance

Manchester United’s new forward prospect Jadon Sancho is an 87 overall and 91 potential winger with five-star skills, and is therefore the ultimate player to manage in FIFA 22 Career Mode.

The 21-year-old, who features for England too, has 92 dribbling, 91 agility, and 90 balance which make Sancho the ideal technical and physical profile for a dribbler. Add 87 vision and short passing into the mix, and Sancho is as creative as they get in FIFA.

His 91 potential reflects the immense form that he showed for Borussia Dortmund, prior to his big-money move to Old Trafford in the summer. His 114 goals and assists in 137 Dortmund outings is the kind of form that even the most experienced players dream of, and whilst his United career hasn’t enjoyed the strongest start, Sancho remains one of the game’s most precocious talents.

5. Paul Pogba (87 OVR – 87 POT)

Team: Manchester United
Age: 28
£189,000 p/w
Value: £68.4 million
Best Attributes: 92 Long Passing, 90 Ball Control, 90 Shot Power

With an 87 overall rating, Paul Pogba has made a career out of his imperious midfield play coupled with incredible trickery in the middle of the park.

Since returning to United, Pogba has showcased his range of passing and underrated goalscoring ability, so it isn’t a surprise that FIFA have given the French showman 92 long passing, 90 shot power, and 88 short passing, in addition to his five-star skills and four-star weak foot.

The United youth product is yet to sign an extension on his current deal at Old Trafford, which means that he could become a free agent in the summer and sign for a new club. If you’d like to capitalise on Pogba’s uncertain future in Career Mode, you may be disappointed to learn that his release clause is still set at an eye-watering £126.5 million. 

6. Ángel Di María (87 OVR – 87 POT)

Team: Paris Saint-Germain
Age: 33
£138,000 p/w
Value: £42.6 million
Best Attributes: 94 Agility, 91 Curve, 88 Free Kick Accuracy

Ángel Di María has always been known for his expert dribbling, excellent final ball, and tremendous skills; the 87 overall PSG winger can do all of that and more in FIFA 22.

He may not be as quick as he once was, but Di María has all of the attributes that you’d want from a creative forward, including 91 curve and 88 crossing and dribbling. These highly-rated attributes only increase the likelihood that he’ll effectively perform his skill moves and produce a dangerous delivery after he’s beaten his marker.

After becoming a breakout star at Real Madrid, Di María made the switch to Manchester United before putting down roots at the Parc des Prince,s where he’s become a very productive player. His most important footballing contribution may have been his Copa América-winning goal in Argentina’s 1-0 final win versus Brazil to delight his fellow Argentinians.

7. Riyad Mahrez (86 OVR – 86 POT)

Team: Manchester City
Age: 30
£189,000 p/w
Value: £56.3 million
Best Attributes: 92 Agility, 91 Dribbling, 91 Ball Control

A notoriously skilful winger, Mahrez was one of the unlikely heroes of Leicester’s title-winning season, and at an 86 overall, he could yet win more trophies both in real life and for your side in FIFA 22 Career Mode.

The Algerian forward can be considered among the greatest dribblers in the Premier League right now, and FIFA have rewarded his brilliance on the ball by giving him 91 dribbling and ball control. He can play some accurate passes, as demonstrated by his 83 short passing, but to get the best out of Mahrez in FIFA, it’s best to rely on his exceptional dribbling.

Famously bought for only £450,000 from Le Havre by Leicester whilst the Foxes were in the Championship, Mahrez shocked the world with the East Midlands side by becoming Premier League champions under Claudio Ranieri. Sold to Manchester City for £60 million, he has been a regular at the Etihad, where he’s won a further two Premier League trophies and carved out his legacy as one of the best African footballers that the Premier League has ever seen.
