FIFA 22 Losing Several National Teams Jeopardizes Its Market Before Qatar WC 2022

National Teams in FIFA have always been the charm of career mode. Managers in Career Mode could manage both club and national teams and thus experience the full potential of football simulation gameplay.

While FIFA 22 has done a decent job of adding more clubs and leagues into the game, it has disappointing news to offer as well. The game won’t include a huge pool of national teams, and a few of them will be replaced with generic team logos and names.

Previously, teams like Brazil National Team had generic players (except Neymar Jr.), which had disappointed several Brazil fans who played FIFA. And this time, Ukraine is the only new national team that’s being added to the game. And truth be told, fans of the franchise don’t seem too pleased.

While the top national teams remain with FIFA, teams like Hungary and Portugal will appear with generic jerseys. South America and Africa, in particular, had to take huge losses as several of their national teams have been cut down. African teams have been completely removed, which came as a major blow to the community.

Furthermore, people are very upset with the removal of Switzerland and Turkey. The Brazil National Team will continue to have generic players and will not feature in Ultimate Team.
