It’ll come down to an Ultimate XI of star footballers. Here are more details about the FIFA 22 TOTY nominees and how to vote for the players you think deserve to be in the XI.
FIFA 22 TOTY Nominees revealed with trailer
On Monday, January 10, EA released a FIFA 22 TOTY trailer video on Twitter which presents the Team of the Year voting. The video explains there are 80 FIFA 22 TOTY nominees, as footage shows star footballers. Some of them include cover star Kylian Mbappe, Mo Salah, Kevin de Bruyne, and Son Heun-min.
Those 80 nominees are scattered amongst goalkeepers, defenders, midfielders, and attackers. Each of those positions requires a certain number of players selected. The video below presents each group of players.
They include a who’s who of the stars of international football, with Mbappe, Ronaldo, Kane, Messi, Neymar, Alexander-Arnold, and Joao Cancelo among them. Of course, their categories feature plenty of options to choose from.
For Goalkeepers, there are just seven GKs to choose from. They include Courtois, Donnarumma, Emerson, Maignan, Martinez, Mendy, and Oblak. Check out the trailer video and nominees below.
For the FIFA 21 Team of the Year, superstar Cristian Ronaldo landed a spot representing Juventus. Other stars included in the lineup were PSG’s Mbappe, Bayern Munich’s Lewandowski, and Liverpool’s Virgil Van Dijk, among others.
