It's quite fun doing a Player Career Mode in my opinion, but it's even more fun if you try and revive the career of a player who used to have high potential, but never really made the top. In this post are 10 recommended failed wonderkids (with a scanned gameface) to use!
  • Patrick Roberts

Patrick Roberts had 85 potential back in FIFA15, but is currently only 69 rated and he has 74 potential in FIFA22 Career Mode as well. He is 24 years of age at the start of a new save and he currently plays for Sunderland in League One. Trying to get Sunderland back into the Championship could be a cool storyline as well!

  • Jann-Fiete Arp

Jann-Fiete Arp currently plays for Bayern Munich, which is quite promising for many youngsters. Unfortunately though, Arp was a big prospect at Hamburger SV before joining Bayern where he doesn’t get any playing time. He had 89 potential back in FIFA19, but is currently 66 rated and he has 76 potential. He is loaned out to Holstein Kiel in the first season.

  • Max Meyer

Loved by many Career Mode fans, is Max Meyer who had 88 potential in FIFA16. Meyer is currently loaned out to Midtjylland from Fenerbahce and he is 72 rated and has 75 potential at 25 years of age.

  • Reece Oxford

Reece Oxford was another big talent coming through West Ham’s academy, as he had 86 potential in FIFA16 and FIFA17. He moved to Augsburg and is currently slowly getting better in the Bundesliga. Still though, Oxford is 73 rated and has 80 potential at 22 years of age at the start of a new Career Mode in FIFA22.

  • Christian Früchtl

Früchtl had 86 potential in FIFA18 and FIFA19 and deemed to be the next Neuer. The current 21-year-old goalkeeper is still at Bayern Munich but is 66 rated and has 76 potential.

  • Hector Bellerin

If you remember Hector Bellerin at his prime at Arsenal, then you know how talented he was. He had 88 potential in FIFA17 and FIFA18 and even reached an 81 rating. However, he didn’t manage to fulfil his potential just yet and he is currently out on loan at Real Betis, at 26 years of age. He is 78 rated and still has a decent 81 potential.

  • Jaïro Riedewald

Jaïro Riedewald had 86 potential in FIFA16 and FIFA17 when he was at Ajax, but a move to Crystal Palace never saw him reach his full potential. He is currently 75 rated and has 77 potential at 24 years of age.

  • Dele Alli

Dele Alli had a massive 91 potential in FIFA17, but never really fulfilled that potential. He is now 79 rated and has 81 potential at 25 years of age. He of course made a recent move to Everton from Tottenham in January where you will have to compete with Donny van de Beek for a spot in the Starting XI.

  • Tahith Chong

Chong had 85 potential in FIFA19 but his potential has dropped rather quickly, as he is currently 70 rated and has 80 potential. He is also loaned out to Birmingham City from Manchester United which means he can show his skills in the Championship first, before entering into the Premier League.

  • Patrick Cutrone

Cutrone had 89 potential in FIFA19, but he is now loaned out from Wolves to Empoli and he is just 73 rated and only has 78 potential. He is 23 years of age at the start of a new Career Mode save.
