With FIFA 16 out now we've decided to pick out the 9 teams that we feel you have to consider for your FIFA 16 Career Mode game.
We’ve tried to get a balance between teams with a solid infrastructure and teams with a lot of potential. We’ve generally stayed away from teams that will require too much work but there are one or two in there that will keep you playing for a long time. Here are the 9 teams you have to play with in FIFA 16 Career Mode.
As we’ve covered before, Fratton Park will be in FIFA 16 this year and for that reason alone you have to consider managing Portsmouth in FIFA 16 Career Mode. Travelling from League 2 to the Premier League with an authentic stadium will be a great journey and Portsmouth have some solid youngsters who can develop well with regular game time. The squad is more than capable of a promotion in the first team, how you build from there is up to you.
Given the fact that EA Sports have now added a realistic match day coverage for Bundesliga games you sort of have to have at least one FIFA 16 Career Mode game in the Bundesliga and we think that Gladbach could be a good bet. They’ve got a really exciting front line at the moment and a number of promising youngsters with Thorgan Hazard signed permanently now. On top of that Borussia Park is one of the latest additions to FIFA 16 and it looks absolutely fantastic.
This year Lyon have been struggling in the league but on FIFA they really could be one of the best teams to play with. Alexandre Lacazette and Nabil Fekir amongst others have both received boosts whilst Mathieu Valbuena, Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa and Rafel have all arrived over the summer. As ever the team have a lot of players with a lot of potential, the one to really keep your eye on is Maxwel Cornet.
Much was made about the business done by Inter Milan over the summer, and rightly so, but we think that on FIFA 16 Career Mode Milan make a more interesting challenge. The reason for this is that they have a fantastic balance of big names and young stars, combined with the fact that they have horrendously underachieved recently. Bringing through the likes of Hachim Mastour and Alessio Romagnoli will be great fun and you’ve also got Carlos Bacca, Jeremy Menez and of course Mario Balotelli.
In case you’ve not noticed we’ve got a bit of a thing for clubs who have their stadiums in their game, when you’re playing FIFA 16 Career Mode it just adds that little bit of authenticity. Hull City have their stadium and they also have Andrew Robertson who can grow into one of the best left-backs in the game. Hull have still got a really solid squad so winning promotion shouldn’t be too hard, the challenge will be survival in the Premier League.
Few teams have as many talented young players as Valencia, seriously it’s a bit ridiculous, just take a look at this list. Paco Alcacer, Rodrigo, Santi Mina, Zakaria Bakkali, Andre Gomes, Rodrigo De Paul, Danilo, Jose Gaya, Joao Cancelo and Matt Ryan. Told you it was extensive. Throw in a nice big budget of over £50 million and the fantastic Mestalla stadium and this is one brilliant FIFA 16 Career Mode save.
Don’t dismiss this one straight away. Of course PSG are the dominant force in France but it doesn’t detract from the fact that you get to play with fifa coins
. Blaise Matuidi, Angel Di Maria, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Serge Aurier are all great fun to play with and of coure you have all the money in the world to build the squad how you want. The challenge will be delivering the Champions League before Ibrahimovic retires.
Wilfried Zaha, Yannick Bolasie, Jason Puncheon and Bakary Sako. If that front four isn’t enough to make you play with Palace then there’s no helping you. Alan Pardew’s side now have Yohan Cabaye as well and they look like a fantastic project on FIFA 16 Career Mode. With new chants added Selhurst Park should really be the fortress that it is in real life.
Memphis Depay and Georginio Wijnaldum may be gone now but that doesn’t mean you should forget about PSV. Maxime Lestienne, Davy Propper and Hector Moreno have all joined whilst Luciano Narsingh, Adam Maher and Jetro Willems look as promising as ever. The challenge for you is to try and win the league again, there’s also the small matter of Squawka interviewee Steven Bergwijn.
