In FIFA 21, available for PlayStation 4 (PS4), Xbox One, PlayStation 5 (PS5), Xbox Series X/S, Nintendo Switch, and PC, quality attackers are the main road to victory. With good offensive pieces, it is possible to score many goals and make life difficult for the opponents. For this, it is ideal to count on fast players, skilled and, especially, good finishers, to beat the goalkeepers in one-on-one competitions. You can also read FIFA 21 Best Defenders.
Techidence has prepared a list of the 10 best players for offensive positions in the game. It is worth mentioning that the list does not include the forwards with the best overall scores, but the most efficient options for the Ultimate Team and Career modes.
Cristiano Ronaldo – Juventus (Piemonte Calcio)
One of the key players of the last decade, the Portuguese became an icon at Manchester United and Real Madrid before moving to Juventus, where he already shows all his quality and goalscoring flair. Even at the age of 36, he is still fast, vigorous and skillful as well as an excellent finisher, whether on the ground or in the air.
Kylian Mbappe – Paris Saint-Germain
At only 22 years of age, Mbappe has already become one of the leading strikers in world soccer, and in FIFA 21 the story is no different. Highly valued in the Ultimate Team market, the Frenchman is extremely fast, dribbling, and also finishes very well, besides the great nationality, which facilitates connections with players from other championships.
Neymar Jr. – Paris Saint-Germain
Another PSG star to appear on FIFA 21’s list of top strikers, Neymar is undoubtedly one of the most popular options among players. Besides the key characteristics that make a good striker in the game (speed, good shot, dribbling), the Brazilian still has five stars of finishing with a weak leg, which allows him to finish equally well with the right or left.
Lionel Messi – Barcelona
Far from his best days on the field, Messi is still one of the best players in the EA Sports soccer simulator, and playing in attack is a real nightmare for opponents. Very agile, the Argentinean can easily infiltrate among the defenders, in addition to the great shooting, free-kicks, and passes.
Sadio Mané – Liverpool
One of Liverpool’s leading names in recent victories, Mané is yet another of the strikers who unite several of the qualities of a true killer. One of the fastest in the game, the Senegalese is difficult to keep up, which makes him able to score several times. The fact of playing in the Premier League also facilitates his inclusion in FUT teams.
Mohamed Salah – Liverpool
Manchester United’s Liverpool team-mate Salah is one of the best alternatives for the right-sided striker position, so scarce at FIFA 21. With his calibrated left leg, the Egyptian is capable of scoring goals from long distances, with precise and powerful beats. Speed and insinuating dribbling are also characteristics of the player.
Marcus Rashford – Manchester United
Rashford is still young, but he already stands out with the Red Devils shirt and the English national team, where he is also one of the main names. Despite his good stature, the player is very light, agile, and fast, factors that combined with his five dribbling stars make him one of the most difficult strikers to score in FIFA 21.
In FIFA 21 Career mode, the best signings are not always experienced and “ready” players, apart from being expensive, they also tend to decline quickly, due to their age (such as CR7, Salah, Messi). The best choice is to opt for young talents, who cost less and can perform for years.
Erling Haaland – Borussia Dortmund
- Potential: 92
One of the most commented names in world soccer, the Norwegian is only 20 years old, but already shows soccer of great players. With almost two meters tall, a lot of physical strength, and an eye for a goal, Haaland has an enormous potential in career mode and inevitably becomes one of the best in the world.
João Felix – Atlético de Madrid
- Potential: 93
Compared to Kaká by some, the young Portuguese has skill as his main characteristic. Being able to play from striker to midfielder, João is another of the young athletes who have grown a lot in their career and can be sold for real fortunes in a very short time.
Vinicius Jr. – Real Madrid
- Potential: 93
Signed by Real Madrid with the potential of being the “new Neymar”, Vinicius has not yet shown his full potential for the Merengue club. However, at the age of 19, he certainly still has much to evolve. At FIFA 21, the star has plenty of potentials and is worth the investment for the future.
