EA Sports have released Team 2 of FIFA 20 Ultimate Team’s (FUT) newest promo ShapeShifters, which includes some high-rated players such as Cristiano Ronaldo, N’Golo Kante, Frank Ribery, and more.

ShapeShifters has been one of the more popular and well-received promos in FIFA 20, featuring cards that have had their positions changed and stats boosted.

After the first batch of players was released on February 21, EA have now rolled out the second half of the team, headlined by a 95 RW Ronaldo, 92 CB Kante, 91 ST Ribery, 90 CAM Richarlison, and 88 CB Alaba.

Team 2 features 12 cards in total – 10 of them available in packs and two untradeables, including an 87-rated CB Zakaria, available via SBC, and an 87-rated ST Bartra, who can be unlocked in objectives.

The beauty of this promo is that all of these cards are set at positions that normally could not be achieved by regular position-change cards, such as defenders to midfielders, strikers to wingers, etc.

In addition to boosting their stats, EA have also adjusted other aspects of the cards, such as work rates, to make them more suitable for their new positions.

  • Cristiano Ronaldo (95) ST > RW
  • N’Golo Kante (92) CDM > CB
  • Franck Ribery (91) LM > ST
  • Richarlison (90) RM > CAM
  • David Alaba (88) LB > CB
  • Trent Alexander-Arnold (88) RB > CM
  • Ricardo Pereira (88) RB > LB
  • Milot Rashica (86) LW > RW
  • Ferland Mendy (86) LB > CDM
  • Vinicius Junior (85) LW > ST
  • SBC: Denis Zakaria (87) CDM > CB
  • Objectives: Marc Bartra (87) CB > ST
EA Sports / FUTHEADMarc Bartra has been transformed into an 87-rated ST for ShapeShifters Team 2 in FIFA 20 Ultimate Team FUT.

As expected, there are some awesome cards in ShapeShifters Team 2, perhaps none more so than Ronaldo’s new 95-rated right-wing card. CR7 hasn’t had a card at that position in FIFA 20, and not only can players now slot him on that right side with full chemistry, but this version is also left-footed, which is the first time in FIFA history that’s ever been the case.

Alaba is the perfect card to shore up your defensive line. His 85-rated LB card has been turned into an 88-rated CB, and his work rates are now MED/HIGH instead of MED/MED, making him ideal in central defense.

Real Madrid’s Ferland Mendy is another gem in this lineup – his 80-rated LB card is normally HIGH/MED, but this new 86-rated CDM version is MED/HIGH, which is great for central defensive mids. You can pair him up with Future Stars Valverde and ShapeShifters CAM Marcelo to turn your midfield into a brick wall.

How to complete James Tavernier FIFA 21 Headliners SBC: Solutions & cost

EA SPORTS have released a brand new Headliners SBC for an 86-rated version of Rangers defender James Tavernier. So, here’s how you can complete the Squad Building Challenge. 

Headliners have been in FIFA Ultimate Team for a few years, and they work in a similar way to One to Watch cards. If a player who has a Headliners card then gets a new special card which is higher rated, the Headliners version is automatically upgraded.

In FIFA 21, there have been two teams of Headliners released so far, with a few Squad Building Challenges – SBCs – thrown in for good measure too.

The newest SBC centers around Rangers right-back James Tavernier. The 29-year-old defender, who has had two in-forms in Ultimate Team already, has been bumped all the way up to an 86. So, here’s how you can get your hands on him.

James Tavernier Headliners SBC in-game stats & requirements

As you can see above, the boosted stats make Tavernier a pretty decent card to pick up, even if you haven’t built an SPFL or Rangers team. He can seamlessly fit into any team with English defenders, or ICONS, of course.

However, as you might expect, he doesn’t come all that cheap. You’ll have to build two teams to get Tavernier – each containing at least one Team of the Week player.

You can find the requirements for both, below:


  • Number of English players: Min 1
  • Number of in-form players: Min 1
  • Squad Rating: Min 83
  • Team Chemistry: Min 75

Top Form:

  • Number of in-form players: Min 1
  • Squad Rating: Min 85
  • Team Chemistry: Min 65

James Tavernier Headliners SBC cheapest solutions

Speaking of his actual price tag, according to FUTBIN, the total cost for Headliners Tavernier is between 180-190,000 coins, depending on whether you’re on Xbox, PlayStation, or Origin on PC.

However, to try and get you under that somewhat lofty price tag, we’ve got the cheapest solution for each part of the SBC below.

Now, unlike the Player of the Month SBCs like Bruno Fernandes, you won’t have a full month to get the coins and cards needed to get yourself a Tavernier.

The card is only available in Ultimate Team until January 21, so make sure you act fast. And, let us know how you find Tavernier in-game by tweeting us a review over at UltimateTeamUK.
