AC Milan and Spain winger Samuel Castillejo has had his FIFA 20 Ultimate Team revealed, and it’s a very strong line-up. But does it have room for any of his teammates or compatriots?

Samuel Castillejo is perhaps best known for his time in the Spanish top flight with Villareal, where he accumulated 91 appearances across a three year period.

However, a 2018 transfer saw him move to AC Milan, where he has been since. 47 appearances in a couple of years is not a bad record, particularly given he was just 23 when he joined the Italian giants.

Serie A is firing up for a return in the coming weeks, but that hasn’t stopped Castillejo from getting in some FIFA in his breaks from training. On May 23, Redditor ‘theladdd’ shared the Spaniard’s Ultimate Team after coming up against him in a FIFA 20 match.

His starting XI is seriously impressive, boasting a host of the game’s strongest cards and, of course, his own 99 rated pro player card. Arguably the strongest area of the team is its forwards, seeing R9 Ronaldo paired with Cristiano Ronaldo to form a dual strike force.

The midfield is made up of Zinedine Zidane, Ruud Gullit, Sadio Mane and his own 99 OVR card. TOTSSF Reguilon and Carlos form a Sevilla defensive pair, complemented by a Premier League GK, CB, and RB. Samuel Castillejo’s full FIFA Ultimate Team is detailed below:

  • GK: Allison Becker – 97
  • RB: Aaron Wan-Bissaka – 90
  • CB: Virgil Van-Dijk – 90
  • CB: Diego Carlos – 91
  • LB: Sergio Reguilon – 92
  • LM: Sadio Mane – 88
  • CM: Zinedine Zidane – 94
  • CM: Ruud Gullit – 90
  • RM: Samu Castillejo – 99
  • ST: Ronaldo – 94
  • ST: Cristiano Ronaldo – 93

The Redditor commented that Castillejo “didn’t sit back and skipped replay so I’ll be supporting him when football returns!”

In terms of areas to improve, the side’s base gold cards seem obvious choices. All of Virgil Van-Dijk, Sadio Mane, and Cristiano Ronaldo now have TOTSSF cards, but they obviously come at eye watering prices.

Hence, unless Castillejo is willing to invest some of his weekly wages into FIFA Ultimate Team, it might take him some time to upgrade these areas.


How to complete Wes Morgan Moments SBC in FIFA 21: solutions & cost

EA SPORTS have added another Player Moments SBC as part of FIFA 21’s ongoing Black Friday promo in Ultimate Team, and this time it’s an upgrade for silver defender Wes Morgan, celebrating his role as Leicester City captain in the club’s title-winning season.

Morgan, now 36, will forever go down in football folklore as the captain who — along with talismanic hitman Jamie Vardy and enigmatic manager Claudio Ranieri ⁠— guided ⁠the Foxes to a fairytale Premier League title in the 2015/16 season.

The title run, which bookies tipped at 5000 to one before a ball was kicked, is one of the greatest stories in modern football, and Morgan was all for the whole ride.

In the end, only he and Foxes ‘keeper Kasper Schmeichel played every minute of the club’s miraculous 38 games. He was also only the third outfield player to play every minute of a title-winning Premier League season, after Gary Pallister (92/93) and John Terry (14/15). 

EA has now released a “Player Moments” card to celebrate the defender’s achievements. Though the overall may not be too high, Morgan’s upgrade looks like a hidden gem ⁠— here’s how to get your hands on the SBC card.

Wes Morgan SBC stats

At first glance, the new Wes Morgan card isn’t worth too much of a look-in. Don’t let the 74 rating fool you, however, because the Foxes captain is packing some serious firepower with his new SBC upgrade; he could even fit in a meta team!

There are a few low points. Morgan’s shooting is just a low 40, dropped down by 32 finishing and 27 volleys, and many of his stats are a middling 70ish in the front stats.

Morgan has serious gas lying beneath the surface. 71 passing disguises a hefty 95 short passing ⁠— one of the best you can get on a Premier League defender ⁠— and 81 long passing to boot. Crossing is low (29), but he won’t do that much.

Slap a “Shadow” chemistry style on him too, and he rivals top-class defenders like De Ligt and Davison Sanchez. He falls 10 pace short of Gomez, but his Defending (81) and Physical (82) are actually better than the meta Liverpool centerback.

Wes Morgan SBC requirements & solutions

The best news about the Wes Morgan SBC is its cost too. The Leicester City captain can be yours for just a handful of FIFA 21 Ultimate Team coins. In fact, he only requires one 82-rated squad to complete, with a single Foxes player included in the puzzle.

‘Wes Morgan’

  • Players from Leicester City: Min 1
  • Squad Rating: Min 82
  • Team Chemistry: Min 70
  • Players in the Squad: 11

As of publishing, the two-squad challenge costs around 19k coins on Xbox and Origin PC, while PlayStation players can get it for even cheaper at 15k, according to FIFA stats website FUTBIN.

The best Leicester City player to whack into the squad is likely defender Çaglar Söyüncü. He comes in at 80-rated, but costs just 2.4k, so won’t break the bank. Surround him with cheap French stars, and you should hit 70 chemistry with ease.
