Best Young RB RWB FIFA 22

The right part of your defensive formation can be crucial in providing the much-needed resistance against high-caliber players, mostly strikers. Therefore, we shouldn’t waste many words on how important it is for you to have the right choice of RB and RWB players on your team.

As a good manager, learning how to optimize the young talents, especially the Wonderkids is crucial for you. So, here’s our guide when it comes to the best Wonderkids available in the RB & RWB positions.

1.) Reece James (83 OVR / 87 POT)

  • Team: Chelsea FC
  • Age: 21
  • Position: RWB
  • Wage: £81,000 per week
  • Value: £44.5 million
  • Biggest Strengths: 86 Crossing, 87 Balance, 84 Strength

James has been one of the most crucial parts of Chelsea’s strong defense onset, making them a Champions League winning team in 2021. However, he has been present in the attacking phases of his team as well, which is shown by the high points in Balance, Dribbling and Ball Control along with the defensive set he has in Stand Tackle, Marking, and Slide Tackle.

At only 21 years old, he has earned massive respect from his coach Thomas Tuchel, so he’s definitely your first choice when it comes to potential-related signings for your team.

2.) Pedro Porro (80 OVR / 87 POT)

  • Team: Sporting CP
  • Age: 21
  • Position: RWB
  • Wage: £10,500 per week
  • Value: £44.5 million
  • Biggest Strengths: 80 Crossing, 83 Sprint Speed, 85 Stamina

Pedro is probably the biggest potential in his team, and he continues to shine with every game passed by for Sporting CP in Portugal Primeira Liga. The high points on Sprint Speed, Shot Power, Stamina, and Crossing make him very utilized in the offensive actions of his team, while his defensive skillset is also worth mentioning due to his high tackling abilities.

Similar to James, he plays mainly the RWB position, with the difference that he can be played as RM too. This is mostly because of his attacking talent and the possibility of him scoring from distance thanks to the shot power he possesses.

3.) Devyne Rensch (73 OVR / 85 POT)

  • Team: Ajax
  • Age: 18
  • Position: RB
  • Wage: £3,000 per week
  • Value: £6 million
  • Biggest Strengths: 81 Sprint Speed, 77 Jumping, 74 Agility

In our previous guides, we’ve talked about Ajax’s youth school and how they can produce players that have high football IQ with reliability and strength behind their names. Rensch seems to be one of them, as you can acquire this young gem without spending a lot of funds. Of course, due to his youth and inexperience, he’ll probably start from the bench, but he can be promoted to the starting XI if you know how to utilize his talents properly.

4.) Jeremie Frimpong (78 OVR / 85 POT)

  • Team: Bayer 04 Leverkusen
  • Age: 20
  • Position: RB
  • Wage: £29,000 per week
  • Value: £24 million
  • Biggest Strengths: 94 Acceleration, 93 Sprint Speed, 91 Agility

When you see Frimpong’s overall rating, you’d wonder why he is so much used in Leverkusen’s rotation. But then again, his pacing, agility, and balance provide a very crucial utility to his teammates, allowing him to outpace almost any defender that stands his way. This allows him to assist nicely in the enemy box, and along with the dribbling ability he has, creating chances is never a problem for this individual!

If your team misses a fast and prolific RB that can outpace his defenders easily and create chances without hesitation, then Frimpong should be high on the signing list!

5.) Sergino Dest (77 OVR / 84 POT)

  • Team: FC Barcelona
  • Age: 20
  • Position: RB
  • Wage: £64,000 per week
  • Value: £18 million
  • Biggest Strengths: 89 Acceleration, 84 Sprint Speed, 88 Agility

Dest resembles the character of Frimpong in many aspects, and you could easily say that they are same-caliber players. However, Dest has had more spotlight in Barcelona, and he’s been “wielded” from big matches that his team was able to provide, unlike Leverkusen, so he may have more tricks up his sleeve compared to his colleague.

Sergino, however, is having issues with injuries and hasn’t been available to his coach for a longer period. Therefore, reliability could be a potential problem if you decide to sign this young, unbruised diamond.

6.) Lutsharel Geertruida (76 OVR / 84 POT)

  • Team: Feyenoord
  • Age: 21
  • Position: RB
  • Wage: £6,700 per week
  • Value: £14.5 million
  • Biggest Strengths: 88 Jumping, 80 Sprint Speed, 80 Heading Accuracy

Geertruida is one hell of a strong defender, and his jumping skills allow him to score goals from breaks, such as corners and free kicks that end up in the enemy box. Apart from that, his overall skills are average, and he does not possess as much variety as his concurrence. However, if you want to have a player that can score from breaks and starts fast-developing counterattacks, Geertruida might be the choice for your rotation.

7.) Joao Mario (75 OVR / 84 POT)

  • Team: FC Porto
  • Age: 21
  • Position: RB
  • Wage: £7,500 per week
  • Value: £11 million
  • Biggest Strengths: 87 Acceleration, 84 Sprint Speed, 78 Agility

Joao Mario currently plays for FC Porto and is a valuable piece there. However, only the sky’s the limit for him as the high potential he possesses can be used by a variety of elite clubs. The fast pacing along with his agility can provide counterattacks that could turn easily into goals if you provide the right finishers alongside him.

Therefore, Joao Mario should be high on your list when it comes to RB Wonderkids, as you’d want to blend him with players that can complement his playing style.

8.) Tariq Lamptey (74 OVR / 84 POT)

  • Team: Brighton & Hove Albion
  • Age: 20
  • Position: RWB
  • Wage: £26,000 per week
  • Value: £8 million
  • Biggest Strengths: 92 Acceleration, 95 Balance, 83 Sprint Speed

Brighton has been nothing short of a spectacular team in the previous season, and Lamptey is one of the main reasons that this team has been performing well. The youngster provides really good speed, balance, and acceleration that make other managers question the reliability of their defenders and midfielders that are supposed to stop him. He is playing in such a strong league, and due to the high performance of his team, he’s gathering very valuable experience that can be used in your rotation.

9.) Marcus Holmgren Pedersen (73 OVR / 84 POT)

  • Team: Feyenoord
  • Age: 21
  • Position: RB
  • Wage: £5,500 per week
  • Value: £6 million
  • Biggest Strengths: 90 Sprint Speed, 89 Acceleration, 87 Stamina

Pedersen is an RB that can be acquired for a small amount of money but can provide a much-needed boost and fresh blood to your defense. His talent has already been recognized by elite scouts, as this young blood could be on the move soon rather than later. The sprint speed, acceleration, and stamina all have high points on his profile. Therefore, this player could fulfill the position without any problem if you lack a player of this caliber.

10.) Malo Gusto (72 OVR / 83 POT)

  • Team: Olympique Lyonnais
  • Age: 18
  • Position: RB
  • Wage: £8,700 per week
  • Value: £4,2 million
  • Biggest Strengths: 85 Acceleration, 86 Sprint Speed, 83 Stamina

Much like his colleagues, Gusto possesses high skill points in Acceleration, Sprint Speed and Stamina, making him a reliable RB that has proven his worth in his team. He’s not an expensive player to buy, and we think that his talents are actually not appreciated enough because if he’s given more time, he can turn into a much stronger and more reliable player, as shown by his potential points of 83. Therefore, consider signing him to your team if you need a young and strong force in the RB position.

We hope that this guide has brought you some knowledge and experience about the RB and RWB role, and more importantly, we hope that you’ll sign some of the Wonderkids available for this position. However, like any other position, you should blend them with the rest of the team so you’ll have a fully-functioning team that’ll work like one whole unit, not a couple of individuals that stick out from the rest of the rotation. Therefore, we write these guides so you’ll have more in-depth knowledge about the players and their profiles.
