Can FIFA 22 Settle The Debate On Haaland Vs Mbappe?

After the release of FIFA 22 game by EA Sports, we've been able to view some players upgrades and overall stats. However, the debate keeps getting more intense over who the better player/attacker is between Kylian Mbappe and Erling Haaland. Will these stats settle the debate? We'll get to decide that after reviewing the stats presented.

NOTE: Both players have a defined position of ST (striker) in the recent release, hence, a legible comparison. Also, the comparison is strictly based on attacking prowess and as such, the ability "DEF" (defence) has been ruled out or excluded.

1. Kylian Mbappe_Overall_91: With a boost in overall (91) in the recent release, Kylian Mbappe is sure to get some edge over many players, in this case, well consider the basic attacking abilities of attackers/strikers in FIFA 22.

• PAC-97

• SHO-88

• PAS-80

• DRI-92

• PHY-77

2. Erling Haaland_Overall_88: After a fine season with Dortmund last campaign, Erling Haaland abilities were increased which earned him an impressive 88 upgrade in FIFA 22. Below are his basic attacking stats in FIFA 22.

• PAC-89

• SHO-91

• PAS-65

• DRI-80

• PHY-88

After carefully reviewing the stats presented;

* PAC_ Kylian Mbappe (97) apparently beats Erling Haaland (89) on the pace ability, although not a bad pace either for Haaland, as he is also a developing player, but when compared to Mbappe, Kylian edges over him, hence, a plus one to Kylian Mbappe.

* SHO_ Erling Haaland (91) edges over Kylian Mbappe (88) in the shooting ability, this is a plus one to Erling.

* PAS_ Kylian Mbappe (80) leads the way in the passing ability as compared to Erling Haaland who only had 65. This counts for Kylian Mbappe.

* DRI_ The dribbling ability sees Kylian Mbappe above Erling Haaland. With the French man’s dribbling ability of 92, he gets a point added to him as compared to his counterpart Erling who only had 80 in the game.

* PHY_ Lastly, for the physicality, Erling Haaland (88) is easily above Kylian Mbappe whose physicality is 77. This adds a point to the Norwegian striker.

In conclusion, with the stats and abilities being viewed and carefully compared, I think Kylian Mbappe slightly edges Erling Haaland.

Poll: After the review and stats breakdown of Erling Haaland and Kylian Mbappe, who do you think is the better attacker/striker in FIFA 22?
