The FIFA 23 Ultimate Team World Cup event is here and players have been asked to choose their starter nation!
The FIFA 23 World Cup event has given us limited-time items! You will be granted five of these items rated 84 or below from the nation you chose.
Picking your starter nation could prove a difficult choice but we have you covered if you have not yet decided!
Which FIFA 23 World Cup Starter Nation Should I Choose?
We recommend choosing Brazil or France as your FIFA 23 World Cup Starter Nation. This is because they have the most expensive players rated 84 or below. Brazil’s Starter Pack could include Eder Militao and Antony, whereas France’s could include Ferland Mendy, Raphael Varane, and Ousmane Dembele.
Although untradeable, these are players who could make great options for your Ultimate Team.
The following nations are also good options as they have the highest amount of players rated between 82-84:
If your nation has made it to the World Cup, picking your own country would be a great choice also!
