EA Sports have released the third set of Icon Swaps in FIFA 20 Ultimate Team FUT, featuring some top-level cards like 91 Zinedine Zidane, 92 Paolo Maldini, and 86 Ruud Gullit.

Icon Swaps are FIFA 20’s version of Icon SBCs from last year, allowing players to get their hands on some high-rated legends that otherwise might be too expensive in the market.

Throughout the course of this year’s game, at the start of every in-game season, EA are releasing a full set of these cards, which players can work towards by grinding the game.

Set #3, released on March 13, features 21 Icons in total – a mix of Base, Middle, Prime, and Prime Moments, which were released in FUT 20 not too long ago.

In order to unlock them, players must complete specific in-game objectives to get Tokens that can be used to redeem one more of the cards.

The Icons vary in terms of how many Tokens it takes to unlock them; for this set, 10 of them are in the 6-13 Token bracket, 10 are in the 15-20, and the top-three cost 21+.

EA SportsIcon Swaps #3 are now available in FIFA 20 Ultimate Team FUT.

Prime Moments Schmeichel removed

Shortly after Icon Swaps #3 was released, EA removed Prime Moments Peter Schmeichel from the available players because his Base version had already been featured in the first set.

“Peter Schmeichel has been removed from Icon Swaps 3, as he was included in Icon Swaps 1,” they announced. “We have taken the decision to remove him from Icon Swaps 3 in case some players would have made different selections in Icon Swaps 1 if they knew there was the potential to get him in Icon Swaps 2 or 3.”

The card will not be replaced, instead, Set #3 will feature only 20 cards, despite there being two goalkeepers – Yashin and Lehmann – who were not included in any of the Swaps this FIFA.

So, as always, which Icon Swaps you go for is totally up to you. You can get all of the Tokens and save them to get one of the higher-level cards, or you can split your haul between two, maybe even three players.

Remember, that Prime Icon Pack can also yield something great, so it’s definitely worth considering that as an option when spending your Tokens.

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.
