EA SPORTS have ramped up the hype for the FUT Birthday Team 2 promo team in FIFA 20, dropping an in-game teaser leaving players guessing as to who could be about to receive a major upgrade. Here’s our predictions. 

The first FUT Birthday team was long in the making, with members of the community predicting an event of this kind was going to land – as it does every year – for weeks on end. You could hardly be disappointed with the first set of cards either, with the likes of Marcus Rashford, Kylian Mbappe, and more featuring.

Since that time, there has also been themed Squad Building challenges like that of Jordan Amavi, Mesut Ozil, Karim Bellarabi, and Lucas Paqueta. However, with a fresh loading screen teasing the attributes and nationalities of the next set, the guessing game of who comes next is well underway.

Here are the players EA picked for FUT Birthday Team 1.

When is FUT Birthday Team 2 coming out?

EA SPORTS have added a teaser in-game, showing a RW card rated 91, a Brazilian with 97 pace, and a Frenchman with 90 shooting. Just like the first collection of 15 FUT Birthday cards, however, the weak foot and skill moves were also revealed on the screen, seen below.

The post confirms that Team 2 will land on April 3, with this sort of thing typically announced around 3PM (GMT) and then released three hours later.

Now, let’s jump right into the predictions we are making for the second FUT Birthday Team, which will no doubt feature a number of weak foot and skill move upgrades once again.

  • Douglas Costa (88)
  • Memphis Depay (89) – ST
  • Raheem Sterling (91)
  • Alexandre Lacazette (90)
  • Blaise Matuidi (87)
  • Kostas Manolas (88)
  • Angel Di Maria (90) – CAM
  • Paulo Dybala (92) – ST
  • Marco Reus (92) – LW
  • Paul Pogba (90)
  • Clément Lenglet (88)
  • Wilfried Zaha (87)
  • Carlos Vela (88) – ST
  • Quincy Promes (87) – RM
  • Heung Min-Son (91) – ST

As you can see, the list includes some of the absolute favorite players from down the years in Ultimate Team, including Lacazette, Reus, Manolas, Son, and more. Hopefully a few of them will make it into the official team, as none of these predictions are confirmed. They’re just that – predictions.

So, there you have it! Those are our picks for FUT Birthday Team 2 in FIFA 20. Who do you think should get an upgraded card as part of this promo team? Let us know by tweeting us @UltimateTeamUK.


How to complete FIFA 21 FGS token swaps SBCs

EA SPORTS are bringing out FGS Token swaps SBCs so that you can cash in your tokens for rewards. Here’s what you need to know about the new Squad Building Challenges. 

With the FIFA esports scene growing year on year, EA SPORTS have started using rewards for fans who tune into the different events every time they roll around – with everything from packs to player drops being possible.

This involves having your EA SPORTS account linked to your Twitch account, and then it’s all about kicking back, watching the action, and hoping you strike it lucky with a drop.

With FIFA 21, things are changing ever so slightly. EA are offering up special FGS Player tokens to anyone who watches an hour of the action, and these tokens can then be used in squad building challenges. 

However, unlike trying to complete a Player of the Month or Flashback SBC, you won’t have to build an entire squad around one of your tokens.

Oh no, instead, you’ll be able to take the tokens and swap them directly for rewards. It’s pretty simple, the more tokens you have, the more rewards you’ll be able to complete. 

Just take the tokens to the SBC that you’d like to complete, pop them in, press complete, and wait for your reward to pop out. For now, these rewards are all about packs, and you can find the different levels below.

FIFA 21 FGS Swaps SBC requirements

  • Jumbo Rare Players Pack: FGS Swap Players – exactly 5
  • Mega Pack: FGS Swap Players – exactly 4
  • Prime Electrum Players Pack: FGS Swap Players – exactly 3
  • Premium Gold Pack: FGS Swap Players – exactly 2

The SBCs are currently in-game, but tokens aren’t available just yet.

As of writing, these challenges can’t be completed because the FGS Tokens are not currently live. However, once they are, just follow the steps above to claim a reward. 

These rewards are set to be available for the next 30 weeks. That’s right, 30 weeks, so you don’t have to worry about getting tokens fast. Simply bide your time, and you’ll get a reward at some point. 

The current crop of rewards, the four packs, could very well change over the course of the year, so we’ll keep a keen eye on things over the next few weeks.
