Introduction to the FIFA 18 Nations Squad Guide

 

Building a team is the biggest challenge in FIFA 18 Ultimate Team. It doesn’t need to be the best team, this is because the budget may not allow it, but it needs to be the player’s stature for him to obtain success.

When choosing which players to play with, you will have to look carefully at their attributes. Choosing a team based on ratings is one of the most common mistakes on FUT 18. It’s precisely this aspect that this guide focuses on. For each position, and focusing on the truly important attributes, we’ll show you who are the best athletes to choose.

It’s also important that the player checks to see if the player he chooses fits the formations he likes to play in. For example, a good full back will be useless if the player only uses a formation with three defenders. According to these formations, the player must be cautious and look at the work rate. Try to relate them with the ones we advise in our Formations Guide.

Last but not least, it’s mandatory that you tune all of your team so that the individual and team chemistry will be as high possible. For this last step to be easier, the majority of the players start to define the type of team they’re building. Some choose to gather players of the same nationality, while others decide to form a team of players from the same league. There are also more experienced players that can form hybrid teams without damaging team chemistry a lot.

This article aims to help those that want to form a FIFA 18 squad from a single nation. Even the players that already have a team based in these nations, could take out some valuable conclusions from this guide that could help you make your team even better.

Another important point and that must stay very clear is that whoever is reading this guide, it’s about some criteria we chose and should be of everyone’s knowledge:

✔️ Only Gold Players
In this guide we didn’t consider silver or bronze player. Most players don’t assume them to be a better option than gold players, so to simplify the guide’s analysis we didn’t include them.

✔️ Only Regular Players
In this guide, we didn’t consider In Forms (IF) or special cards. They’re extremely expensive and in most cases are not considered good value for money. They should only be used by players with generous budgets, that already have the best team possible and that want small upgrades.

✔️ Only Normal Players
In this guide, we didn’t consider players that have been reviewed (UP).

✔️ Only Original Attributes
In this guide, we didn’t consider changes made in a player’s performance such happens when applying training or chemistry styles cards.

✔️ Formation
For each nation, we selected the best suitable formation among the most popular ones.

✔️ Budgets
The teams suggested in this guide don’t have a limit on their budget.

✔️ Fluctuation of Prices
We added a link to each nation where you can check anytime the updated prices of our suggested squad.
