EA SPORTS respond to Kimmich & Sancho TOTSSF card issues

EA SPORTS is investigating issues with the newly-released Joshua Kimmich and Jadon Sancho Team of the Season (TOTS) So Far upgrade cards, the FIFA 20 developers confirmed on Twitter earlier today.

English wonder-kid Jadon Sancho and German superstar Joshua Kimmich, who both play in the Bundesliga, were included in FIFA 20’s bumper Ultimate TOTSSF on June 5. Unfortunately, their return to packs wasn’t without issues, as FUT players soon discovered.

Over the past few days, players have had major problems when packing both Kimmich and Sancho. Namely, each should emerge from any given FUT pack as a 96-rated wonder-card. Instead, players have been receiving their base releases.

Update – June 12

EA SPORTS have resolved the issues with the Sancho and Kimmich TOTSSF cards, and players who were affected have received the correct versions.

They can be found in the Unassigned Items section after logging into Ultimate Team following this update.

Original story:

EA respond to broken Kimmich & Sancho TOTSSF cards

The issue continued across the weekend. FIFA players demanded EA fix the glitch before Weekend League rewards are handed out on Thursday morning. The publishers finally responded after the WL closed for the round.

“We are investigating reports of some players receiving incorrect versions of Kimmich and Sancho from packs,” EA said on their fan-direct Twitter account on June 9. “We’ll provide further updates in this thread as they develop.”


This issue is particularly disappointing for FIFA 20 fans because of just how rare it is to pack a Team of the Season card in Ultimate Team. Some players will go entire title cycles without a ‘first owner’ version of the upgraded cards.

How to get upgraded Kimmich & Sancho replacements

EA has yet to confirm their response to the issue. In the past, however, the publishers have handed out the correct cards once the glitch has been resolved. 

Any players who have been affected by this can likely expect a similar fix. This applies to anyone who packed Jadon Sancho or Joshua Kimmich since FIFA’s Ultimate Team was released on June 5. If you pulled a base card, make sure you contact EA directly for a replacement.

FIFA 20 players will be able to try their upgraded Sancho and Kimmich cards before they know it.

These packed player issues are far from the first EA has had to deal with in FIFA 20: only two weeks ago, the game’s Companion App was left broken on both mobile and desktop, leaving players unable to buy or sell cards.

Thankfully, FIFA players will soon be able to put EA’s 2019 game in the rear window though, once the fan-voted Futties squad drops. Our first look at FIFA 21, and the new features EA may add, is now expected to be on June 18.


How to complete Alessandrini Flashback SBC in FIFA 21: solutions & cost

A new Flashback SBC is available in FIFA 21 Ultimate Team for French Winger Romain Alessandrini, celebrating his goal-studded 2017-2018 seasons for the Los Angeles Galaxy.

SBC’s are a great way to fill out your card collection in FUT, and if you’re in need of something new on the outside, Alessandrini might be just the man you’re looking for.

Now playing for Chinese Super League team Qingdao Huanghai, the Winger notched two of the best seasons in his career while playing for the LA Galaxy in the MLS (13 goals in 2017 & 11 in 2018), which this new Flashback card harkens back to.

Fans who played Ultimate Team in FIFA 18 will remember how good the Frenchman’s cards were – almost everyone had either his first or second In-Form on their bench as a super-sub, and his nationality made it easier to even start him, for those who wanted to.

Stats for Alessandrini’s Flashback SBC in FIFA 21.

To start off, just check out that 92 Pace on an 85 OVR card. You really couldn’t ask for anything better with 91 Sprint Speed and 93 Acceleration. Shooting, Passing, and Dribbling also all clock in at high to mid-80s as well.

Defending and Physicality are his weak points, but the good news is that there’s only one single challenge you have to knock out in order to wrap up this SBC and grab the fleet-footed Frenchman’s new card for yourself.

Alessandrini Flashback SBC requirements, solutions, cost.

Altogether these tasks should run you around 92,000 to about 105,000 FUT Coins to complete, which isn’t too shabby at all considering the Acceleration and Sprint Speed stats he’s packing. The full requirements are listed below:

Romain Alessandrini

  • Number of players from France: Min 1
  • IF Players: Min 1
  • Squad Rating: Min 85
  • Team Chemistry: Min 70
  • Number of players in the Squad: 11

Below are a couple of the cheapest solutions we’ve found to this Flashback SBC, and to make things even easier they don’t require any loyalty to complete.

Now that you know all there is to know about how to knock this SBC out, the only question left is: is it worth it? Looking at the stats alone, especially that 92 Pace, we’d definitely say this SBC is worthwhile if you can afford to complete it.

If you can muster up the coinage prior to the challenge expiring on Friday, December 4, then definitely look into it because this could be a highly-coveted super-sub that you can’t get your hands on later.
