Wolves star Diogo Jota has revealed the FIFA 20 Ultimate Team lineup that lifted him to a perfect 30-0 record and Top 100 ranking in FUT Champs Weekend League. 

Though many football professionals have taken their talents into the virtual world of FIFA, there might be none better than Diogo Jota. Wolves’ 23-year-old star recently dominated the ePremier League invitational tournament – taking down Liverpool’s Trent Alexander-Arnold in the final.

Not long after that had concluded, however, the Portuguese winger had revealed that he’d managed to go 30-0 in FUT Champs Weekend League for the week of April 24-26. With many fans asking him what team he’d trotted out in order to have a perfect record, Jota has finally revealed all. 

EA SPORTS
Jota might be the best professional footballer when it comes to FIFA.

The Portuguese youngster tweeted out that he had managed to secure 61st place in the Weekend League without using his 99-rated custom pro player card in his starting lineup.

Instead, he gave way to fellow Premier League stars Sadio Mane and Allan Saint-Maximin, while also opting for a few different Icon cards than usual in the forms of Michael Essien, Gheorghe Hagi, and Emilio Butragueno. 

Diogo Jota’s 30-0 FIFA 20 Ultimate Team

  • GK: Alisson – 97
  • LB: Kieran Tierney – 86
  • RB: Joao Cancelo – 87
  • CB: Joe Gomez – 93
  • CB: Virgil Van Dijk – 99
  • CM: Michael Essien – 90
  • CM: Kevin De Bruyne – 98
  • CAM: Gheorghe Hagi – 91
  • RM: Allan Saint-Maximin – 88
  • LM: Sadio Mane – 91
  • ST: Emilio Butragueno – 87

Having that perfect 30-0 record is obviously a huge achievement for any FIFA player, nevermind someone with a team as good as Jota. However, there are changes that he could very well make.

Obviously, his 99-rated custom pro player card would be a pretty sizable upgrade over his current wingers – especially Allan Saint-Maximin. Upfront, he could also pick up the higher-rated Butragueno cards.

Though, if he manages to go 30-0 on more than one occasion, maybe he won’t need any changes at all – no matter how much better they might look on paper.

Son Heung-min builds his dream “Ultimate player” in FIFA 21

Tottenham star Son Heung-Min sat down with Irish footballer David Meyer to build the ultimate Hotspur card for FUT 21, and it would be an absolute titan were it real.

Son is generally considered one of the best wingers playing today, and was named EA Sports Premier League Player of the Month for the third time in October 2020.

Along with Meyer, the South Korean concocted an Ultimate Teammate, a monster of a card combining the best stats from Tottenham players including himself, albeit a bit reluctantly.

Each of the six stats that make up a FIFA player card — Pace, Shooting, Passing, Dribbling, Defense, and Physical — were included, and the end result is a Frankenstein’s Monster of skill that you would never want to go up against (though, we’d take him on our squad).

So, let’s take a look at what Son managed to cook up, starting with Pace, and running on through the list:

Pace — Lucas Moura

EA Sports
Lucas is certainly speedy, so we can’t fault Son here.

For any fan of the Spurs, the choice of Lucas Moura for best Pace will come as no surprise, boasting a highly decent 92 on his regular gold card.

“Lucas is definitely faster than me,” Son laughed, when prodded by Meyer that he might actually have the edge in speed. EA apparently agrees, only giving the Winger an 88 Pace for his standard card.

Shooting — Harry Kane

Who else but Harry Kane? That 92 shooting will fit in quite nicely.

For shooting, the choice was none other than Harry Kane, who comes in with 92 in that category, one of the highest on Tottenham.

Again, Son was reluctant to name himself. Possibly because he’s a crack FIFA expert and was aware Kane has six more points in shooting than his 86, that, or he’s just doesn’t want to leave anyone out.

Dribbling — Lucas Moura

Despite considering Steven Bergwijn and himself (again) for best dribbling on Tottenham, Son once again went with the reliable pick of Moura.

While Bergwijn is only an 85 DRB, it could have really gone either way between the final two contestants, but an unwillingness to give himself much credit led to Lucas getting picked once again.

Passing — Giovani Lo Celso

Argentine Giovani Lo Celso was Son’s pick for Tottenham’s best passer.

For Passing, Midfielder Giovani Lo Celso got the nod, but only comes in with an 82 for his standard card in the stat. Still, we have to remember this was only Tottenham players that were able to be picked.

That, and Son has hooked with Son quite a few times for memorable goals over their careers, which could have been another factor in the pick.

Defending —Toby Alderweireld

Belgian back Toby Alderweireld’s 85 DEF got him a spot on the Ultimate card.

After joking that the upgrade to make his DEF 45 for his latest POTM card might be enough to finally make him choose himself, Son made a more reasonable choice and went with Alderweireld.

87 Defence is definitely nothing to scoff at, and put together with our sixth and final stat, it helps to make this “Ultimate Card” absolutely freakish.

Physical — Moussa Sissoko

Looking at the stats, it’s easy to see why Sissoko got the pick here.

Finally, rounding things out at Physical is Moussa Sissoko who comes in with an 89 — his best stat by far. This was one area where Son probably wouldn’t be considered either, on top of Defense.

Altogether, we get a 99 OVR card boasting 92 Pace, 91 Shooting, 82 Passing, 87 Dribbling, 87 Defense, and 89 Physical. Just imagine for a moment the price tag that would come along with the SBC for this bad boy.

EA Sports
An absolute monstrosity, in more ways than one.

Luckily, Son’s Ultimate Teammate card will most likely never make it into FIFA 21 itself, as it would be massively overpowered — if you haven’t picked up on that already.
