Bring out your red, white, and blue ⁠— Chelsea’s American star Christian Pulisic is the latest footballer to get a Summer Heat SBC card in FIFA 20 Ultimate Team, after beating Kramarić and Rabiot in a recent ‘Real World’ fan-vote.

Pulisic has had the eyes of the United States upon him since he made a bumper £58 million transfer to the English giants in 2019. So far, the Pennsylvania-born winger had delivered too, scoring eight in 23 in the Premier League.

His recent shining performances ⁠— as well as votes from every American fan, let’s not beat around the bush on that ⁠— have earned him a new FIFA 20 Summer Heat SBC card. He beat out Adrien Rabiot and Andrej Kramarić for the honors.

Here’s everything you need to know about the Chelsea striker’s challenges, from how much the SBC will cost, how strong the new Summer Heat card will be, and how to get the puzzles done on the cheap.

Pulisic Summer Heat in-game stats

The 21-year-old Premier League star has been handed an absolutely monster upgrade in the Summer Heat promo! His last performance-based card in FIFA 20 was a Gold In-Form, all the way back in TOTW7. That was a humble 82-rated left winger card.

This July 21 release has been shot to the upper echelons of the Premier League’s attacking stock. Pulisic has been given a +12 overall boost in the new SBC, including an eight-point increase in pace, and a whopping +17 bump in shooting and passing.

The Chelsea forward seems to be an ideal wide-out striker. He boasts a ‘99’ rating in balance, acceleration, agility, dribbling, shot power, jumping, and stamina, and is just one off a top score in both ball control and short passing.

Pulisic is a must-do if you can slot him into your team. There are only a few downsides, namely his weak physicality, but if the defenders can’t catch him it doesn’t matter. Americans across FIFA 20 will be loving this upgrade for sure!

With the launch of FIFA 21 seeing millions of football fans across the globe start competing to try and become the best in FIFA Ultimate Team, the first Ones to Watch promo team is fast approaching. Here’s everything we know about it.

Ones to Watch follows players that have transferred to other teams, promising them upgrades for every time they make a new promo such as Team of the Week, Team of the Tournament and more.

As such, OTW cards are highly desirable, and if you get a decent one at the start of the year, you could see a lot of improvements as the season unravels.

So, here’s everything we know about Ones to Watch in FIFA 21, including release dates and times, the players included and more.
