Youth Is The Best Defence-The Best Young Central Defenders in FIFA 15 Career Mode.

Centre back is where the spine of the team is fused. It is the foundation that allows all the other moving parts, and that means it is vital you get it right. Defenders careers can last well into their 30′s, so if you can find a young player who can fill that role, you could be set for 10 or more seasons of quality defending. This also allows loads of time for him to develop into a club legend. Taking all that into account Fifa Blogger give you a list of the best young central defenders in FIFA 15 Career mode.

Aymeric Laporte

The man from Bilbao is a must have if your a top team in need of a long term defensive solution. He can come in an excel straight away with a rating of 81 overall at the start of the game. He will reach the high 80′s and is part of what is a golden generation of french talent. Also versatile enough to play very well at left back.

Raphael Varane

Pretty much like for like with Laporte, if you can get these two Frenchman together at the back you will be laughing all the way to the career mode bank. Varane is not as versatile as Laporte but apart form that they are basically identical. Both are very well versed in all areas of defending and if brought in at the start could from a defence to take you through your entire career mode.

John Stones

Everton’s young Englishman starts off rated 71, and grows to be as high as 83-85. Very tall and dominant in the aair, his ability to fill in at right back means he is also comfortable on the ball, and quite speedy for a defender. A very solid option with lots of potential to become even better.

Niklas Sule

The German teen is an imposing challenge for strikers even from an early age. This is due to his 90 strength attribute and it only progresses from there. He also develops  a lethal heading accuracy and becomes a top notch tackler.

Nathan Ake

Ake is a really sought after commodity in terms of FIFA 15. He is a quick defender. His speed attributes start in the high 70′s but considering he will grow into the 89′s overall expect these to get really high. He is already quick in terms of a defender and he is the perfect partner for a big strong aerially dominant centre back. Ideal for moping up in behind the back four and charging out from the back with the ball. Add impressive marks in all the usual defensive areas and if played, you will have a real player on your hands in a few years.

Carlos Blanco

This guy may only be rated at 62 to start with, but because he can grow over 20 marks we had to have him in here. You can pick him up on loan and stick in a future fee clause because this man will grow fast. Not the quickest but a mean tackler and great at marking and interceptions, he is the next Carlos Puyol in the world of FIFA 15.

Jamaal Lascelles

Another young defender who is quick, strong and very decent in the air. Once Lascelles develops he becomes an intimidating physical challenge for even the best strikers. A real bonus is his ability to bag you five goals a season from his terrific aerial ability when attacking corners.



The lost would not be complete without the man PSG paid £30 million for last year. He did not play much and as such his rating to start with is at a modest 77. However if you can find him a first team place at your club be prepared to have a near 90 rated player on your hands by the time he finishes improving. A quality tackler and someone who will not give his man a moments time.
