The full selection of FIFA 23 Road to the World Cup players have been shadow dropped into Ultimate Team outside of the standard release schedule, so you might have missed it if you weren't paying attention. Usually, content in FIFA is released at 6PM GMT, but EA have decided to pull the trigger early this time, perhaps as an indication of bigger things happening tonight. So, to see the full list of FIFA 23 Road to the World Cup players, make sure to carry on reading down below.

Here's a full list of the FIFA 23 Road to the World Cup players that you can pick up right now:

  • Kylian Mbappe
  • Son Heung-min
  • Luka Modric
  • Marquinhos
  • Luis Suarez
  • Gini Wijnaldum
  • Ben White
  • Timo Werner
  • Dries Mertens
  • Matheus Nunes
  • Karl Toko Ekambi (Objective)
  • Jesus Corona

As you can see, there are some rather spectacular names included in this promo team, with Kylian Mbappe's first promo card of the year shining right at the top.

How these cards work though is a bit of a mystery at the moment. Contrary to popular belief - and the naming convention - these cards do not seem to be of the live variety, and will not upgrade relative to their nation's performance in the World Cup. 

They instead are supposed to reward players who played a key part in their nation's qualification for the tournament, so are more of a retrospective card type - although maybe about a year too late. 

There is no indication whether these cards might upgrade if the specific player plays well in the tournament, however, this is rather unlikely considering at least both Werner and Wijnaldum are both injured and not included in their respective nations' squads.

Furthermore, due to the odd release timing, it is unclear when these cards will actually expire, but it is likely that it is on or roughly around December 2, at 6PM GMT.

So, that wraps up this list of all of the FIFA 23 Road to the World Cup players, giving you a list of every card included in the suddenly released promo. If you're wanting to see a list of all of the FIFA 23 SBC solutions that we've covered though, make sure to check out that guide.
