Exciting young players are what many FIFA 20 players will be looking for when starting their Career Modes, so we’ve made a note of the very best for you to take a look at.  

Signing youth prospects have a number of benefits in this particular game mode. Not only are younger players usually faster and have more potential to grow in terms of their quality, but their ever increasing prices can be really helpful as well.

Career Mode always places a strong emphasis on transfer business. You’re going to need to make some key decisions in order to make your team better and also meet objectives set by club owners, which will sometimes mean buying young and selling members of the squad once they have developed.

EA SPORTS FIFAReal Madrid’s Vinícius Jr. is one of the most promising young players in FIFA 20, but he’s not alone.

Standout candidates in the world of football for the most promising young talents include Kylian Mbappé, Matthijs de Ligt, João Félix and many more, but this list should give you an idea of some players that you may not have considered before.

Hopefully, that will mean you can pick them up for a cheaper transfer fee as well! After all, not every team has the near $140 million Atlético Madrid spent on Félix! So, let’s take a look at the top brightest talents the game has to offer between the ages of 16-21. 

The list below, which was compiled using the SoFIFA database for FIFA 20, shows the player name, club, base rating, and potential rating.

EA SPORTS have released the second batch of Team of the Week players in FIFA 21 Ultimate Team, and it looks like there are some exciting cards up for grabs this week.

Following the completion of another busy game week across football’s top-flight leagues, a new set of TOTW players has been released, featuring some huge names and valuable cards.

Dexerto made a number of predictions earlier in the week, included at the bottom of this article, so let’s see how they stacked up with leaks and ultimately, the official team as well.

FIFA 21 Team of the Week 2

Just as with the first Team of the Week, the second TOTW squad is stacked with top talent, such as the likes of Lewandowski, Courtois, Kane, and Haaland. While not as high-rated as those studs, the likes of Milan’s Hernandez and Newcastle’s Saint-Maximin should also draw a lot of attention as being “meta” players.

Here are some of the players you might be interested in:

  • Erling Haaland (86)
  • Robert Lewandowski (92)
  • Harry Kane (89)
  • Thibaut Courtois (90)

FIFA 21 Team of the Week 2 leaked

Ahead of EA SPORTS confirming the full TOTW #2, the full squad was claimed to have been leaked – and the leaker even managed to get his hands on the same image that EA would end up tweeting out.

When did TOTW 2 go live in FIFA 21?

EA SPORTS revealed this next FIFA Team of the Week squad at 6PM (UK time) Wednesday, October 7, 2020. As per usual, they were announced and droped into packs at 6pm BST / 12pm CT / 1pm EST / 3am AEST.

FIFA 20 Team of the Week 32 predictions

What a week! Competitions around the world have come back for the 2020/21 season, soon after the end of last year’s staggering campaign. The back-to-back nature of these seasons, it seems, is going to lead to some exciting games.

The biggest news from the Premier League this week was Aston Villa and Tottenham each dolling out huge defeats for Liverpool and Manchester United respectively. Ollie Watkins scored three and assisted one as he led the Villans to a 7–2 victory over the champions, while Heung Min Son was unplayable against United.
