Each skill and trait of a player has its own advantage in FIFA 23. Therefore, you should keep a player in your squad based on his skill set. Physicality is the key to possession in FIFA 23. Players with high physicality are often slower in speed so it's better to keep a balance of all skill sets in your squad.
By keeping strong players in your team, you will win more headers and be better able to maintain possession. In short, fast players will make you runs and physical ones will do their part.
A strong player in Midfeild will help the most with possession. They make the most crucial tackles and take headers. The most effective player on the list is casemiro, he ain't called Tank for no reason.
|Matthijs de Ligt||85||87|
|Virgil van Dijk||90||86|
A solid centre back (CB) makes the defence strong. They win headers on attack as well as on defence. Don't go for a physical but slow paced centre back or they will be left behind by pacy attackers. Van Dijk, Koulibaly, and Antonio Rüdiger are the best choices for centre backs.
