Finally. Borussia Dortmund's super talent. Youssoufa Moukoko wasn't in the game when FIFA 22 was released. But now we finally get to see the youngster – and can play him. Although he has already played the Bundesliga, DFB Cup, Supercup and Champions League for Dortmund, he was not in FIFA from the start.
So what's going on, EA?
Why Wasn't Moukoko in FIFA 22 Initially?
The answer is simple: Moukoko wasn't 17 years old at the start of the season. As a comparison, let's take a look at the top talent, Kacper Urbanski from FC Bologna. The 17-year-old has been in FIFA 22 since its release – but starts in Career Mode as a 16-year-old.
EA does not include players who are younger than 17 years in the game. Urbanski turned 17 on September 7th, so he was already implemented in FIFA. The season in Career Mode is known to start before September, so he is among the few players who start at the age of 16.
Now Moukoko is finally in the game!
Ultimate Team: Moukoko-Ratings in FIFA 22
With 69 OVR, he probably won't improve any FUT team. But the pace indicates that there is something special about Moukoko. If he gets a Future Stars card or something, he could be amazing. EA will be giving out free Next Generation cards in December... maybe he will be added to this promo?
His shooting and passing stats are just bad, which makes him quite useless. He will only be found in special teams of enthusiasts.
In Career Mode, however, the young attacker can develop into a really fast attacker and grow to be one of the best of the world.
FIFA 22: What is Moukoko's Potential In Career Mode?
Youssoufa Moukoko has a potential of 89! This makes him the absolute top talent in Career Mode. Since the ratings are dynamic, ratings beyond 90 are easily possible. No other player in his age has so much potential.
Logically, he is under the absolute top talents in career mode. With 16 years and 28 days, he is the youngest goalscorer in the Bundesliga. EA refines the striker with a huge development. Rightly!
We are excited to see where his potential might take him in real life. In FIFA 22, we probably pretty much always buy him in Career Mode, simply because he is awesome!
