Erling Haaland’s insane FIFA 21 Ultimate Team starting XI revealed

Borussia Dortmund star Erling Haaland has revealed his FIFA 21 Ultimate Team squad, and it looks absolutely untouchable.

Many young footballers are very similar to us: they just want to build the best squad in FIFA Ultimate Team and dominate opponents in Weekend League.

The main difference is that they’ve got the funds to not even worry about building up enough coins to buy who they want: footballers’ salaries are well-known, and it’s fair to say they can easily afford to open enough packs to last most of us a lifetime.

Norwegian striker Haaland can be added to that list, as his FUT starting XI has been revealed, featuring his 99-rated card alongside a host of ICONs, and it doesn’t get much better than what he’s got.

Erling Haaland is one of this year’s FUT Ambassadors.

The attacking aficionado’s team was posted to Reddit on November 8, and he has forsaken playing alongside his Dortmund or Norway teammates so as to line up with some absolute legends of the game.

Pretty much across the board, Haaland’s team picks are as good as they’ll get. With the likes of Ronaldo, Sol Campbell, Patrick Vieira and Roberto Carlos, you can tell that the Norwegian is delighted to be playing alongside some of the legends he grew up watching.

Needless to say, this is about as good as it gets as far as Ultimate Team goes. Obviously not all of the ICONs are in their highest rated forms, but if that was the only problem the rest of us had with our teams, we’d be laughing through FUT Champs.

All in all, this team would probably set you back around 20 million coins, and that’s not even including the priceless 99-rated Haaland card. It’s fair to say, not many of us will be playing with this squad too soon.

EA SPORTS have rolled out a new Team of the Week-themed SBC in FIFA 21, allowing you to stock up on TOTW players. So, here’s what you need to know.

For the most part, squad building challenges – or SBCs – are focused on giving FIFA fans the chance to unlock special variant cards of their favorite players. 

These are usually like Player of the Month, Flashback, Player Moments, Road to the Final, or a number of different promos, but EA also sprinkles in something different at times too. These unique SBCs can be focused on cosmetics like kits, badges, and stadium upgrades – but there are also the ‘lucky bag’ type SBCs too. 

These SBCs come out at different points of the seasons, and the rewards are either completely random or locked to one particular set of cards. This time around, it’s all about Team of the Week.

We’ve already seen stars like Erling Haaland receive TOTW cards in FIFA 21, but that doesn’t stop them from getting multiple.

Current TOTW Upgrade FIFA 21 SBC requirements

The SBC, called the Current TOTW Upgrade, isn’t all that difficult to grasp. You’ve got to build one squad, and in return, you’ll be given a Team of the Week pack. Unlike the previous TOTW Upgrade, the pack you get for this SBC is locked to the week you open it – rather than the past few weeks. 

With the reward being pretty random – there is no set rating for the player you’ll receive – EA haven’t rolled out an entirely difficult SBC. No, it’s just an 83-rated team, so you can hand over quite a bit of fodder to complete it, if you’ve got unusable cards in your club. 

You will, though, need to also have at least 50 team chemistry when its all said and done – so it can’t just a pile of random cards. But, again, it isn’t difficult. 

  • Current TOTW Upgrade: Min.83 Squad Rating, Min. 50 Team Chemistry, 11 players in the squad. Reward: TOTW Pack. 

Cheap solutions for FIFA 21 Current TOTW Upgrade SBC

Now, if you haven’t got useless cards upon useless cards stocked in your club, you will have to fork out to get the SBC completed. Though, it’s not incredibly expensive.

According to FUTBin, starting it from scratch will cost around 20,000-24,000 coins. But, we’ve got a few solutions that should save you a few coins too. 

Aside from bagging a guaranteed TOTW Card, the SBC is repeatable, so you can try your lcuk over and over – providing you have the coins or cards to do so.
