Other things to know about picking the best FIFA 23 strikers
There are a couple of additional things to keep in mind when choosing your strikers and forwards in FIFA 23, with these factors changing depending on which mode and formation you're playing.
- For Career Mode, potential is important too: Some players have higher built-in potential for growth than others, and if you're planning on playing at least two seasons of Career Mode then it's going to have a major impact on your squad. It's also a great way to pick up a bargain, too, so if you're keen on finding some youngsters take the time to go over our detailed list of the best FIFA 23 wonderkids and young players, which includes some of the finest young strikers in the game.
- Think about your style of play when looking at stats: We mentioned this briefly above, but certain strikers will of course work better in certain formations and styles. Strength, Heading, Ball Control and Short Passing suit target men, whilst Finishing is always useful, Long Shots suit CFs who work outside the box, and Acceleration and Sprint Speed do, of course, help you spread the pitch with pacey poachers sitting on the last man's shoulder.
Have fun in FIFA 23!
