In FIFA 22, centre-backs (CBs) consist of the most important positions, just like they do in real-life football.

FIFA 22's meta requires any player item to have a decent amount of pace. While slower players can be managed and worked around, faster players make the job easier.

But the centre-back is not a position to be naturally rewarded with fast players. As a result, only a handful of CBs in FIFA 22 are fast and equally good defensively. These players are always in demand in FIFA 22 simply because of the game's meta.
