FIFA 21 FUT Birthday card design
The official card design for this year’s FUT Birthday has been revealed as well, as part of the promo’s teasers and loading screens.
Based on the final screen, it looks like our predictions may be a little bit off – as the only two Brazil players we picked were defenders. Imagine a 95 pace Militao running around in FUT Champs…
