Stamina in FIFA 22 is an attribute that determines the duration for which a player can perform effectively in a match. The rating correlates to the maximum time a player can spend on the field, including the time taken to reach maximum sprint speed or to recover after runs.

The stamina rating is also crucial for injury-prone players as it is linked to their likelihood of getting injured. Players with low stamina also require more rest after matchdays in Career Mode.


Central midfielders cover the most ground in football, moving across boxes of the field, catering to the needs of both attackers and defenders. Kevin De Bruyne is one of the finest in this regard, being the highest-rated midfielder in FIFA 22.

The Belgian has an overall of 91, with a stamina rating of 89. Here's a look at five players in the central-midfield position who have a higher stamina rating than Kevin De Bruyne in FIFA 22.
