EA SPORTS have signed two new partner clubs in the form of Italian giants AC Milan and Inter Milan, and it looks like former players from Inter may soon arrive as new Ultimate Team ICONs. 

The deals were unveiled on August 3 and will be a welcome one for all football fans. Usually, these exclusive partnerships see the arrival of new face scans, stadium content, and all of that was packed into two bite-size trailers for players to see.

The first, for AC Milan, showed off several players who have previously been added to the ICONs list. These include Kaka, Clarence Seedorf, Ronaldinho, Alessandro Nesta, and more.

On the other hand, a few players were afforded a decent deal of time in the Inter Milan trailer that fans haven’t been able to play with for some time. They could be the next legends.

New FIFA 21 ICON cards revealed?

As seen in the trailer above, posted to our UltimateTeamUK Twitter account, there are a few Inter greats that made it into the video. These include Javier Zanetti, Juan Sebastian Veron, and a few others.

However, eyebrows will definitely be raised at the inclusion of two others who have been linked to FIFA 21 ICON cards in the past. Samuel Eto’o and Maicon featured in the short clip, but if you blink you might miss them.

Eto’o and Maicon coming in FIFA 21?

As seen in the screenshots below, taken from the trailer, both the former Cameroon and Brazil internationals can be seen.

They are not involved in any gameplay segments, though.

FIFA 21’s ICONs list will comprise 100 players this year, which is 12 more than last year’s offering. Eric Cantona has already been confirmed, while Diego Forlan has been teasing the possibility of his inclusion on social media.

Once more are announced, we’ll be the first to let you know.

EA SPORTS have released the second batch of Team of the Week players in FIFA 21 Ultimate Team, and it looks like there are some exciting cards up for grabs this week.

Following the completion of another busy game week across football’s top-flight leagues, a new set of TOTW players has been released, featuring some huge names and valuable cards.

Dexerto made a number of predictions earlier in the week, included at the bottom of this article, so let’s see how they stacked up with leaks and ultimately, the official team as well.

FIFA 21 Team of the Week 2

The full Team of the Week #2 in FIFA 21 Ultimate Team!

Just as with the first Team of the Week, the second TOTW squad is stacked with top talent, such as the likes of Lewandowski, Courtois, Kane, and Haaland. While not as high-rated as those studs, the likes of Milan’s Hernandez and Newcastle’s Saint-Maximin should also draw a lot of attention as being “meta” players.

Here are some of the players you might be interested in:

  • Erling Haaland (86)
  • Robert Lewandowski (92)
  • Harry Kane (89)
  • Thibaut Courtois (90)
  • Ben Chilwell (84)
  • Theo Hernandez (83)
  • Jack Grealish (83)
  • Ollie Watkins (81)
  • Allan Saint-Maximin (83)
  • Renato Sanchez (82)
  • Marcel Halstenberg (84)

FIFA 21 Team of the Week 2 leaked

Ahead of EA SPORTS confirming the full TOTW #2, the full squad was claimed to have been leaked – and the leaker even managed to get his hands on the same image that EA would end up tweeting out.

When did TOTW 2 go live in FIFA 21?

EA SPORTS revealed this next FIFA Team of the Week squad at 6PM (UK time) Wednesday, October 7, 2020. As per usual, they were announced and droped into packs at 6pm BST / 12pm CT / 1pm EST / 3am AEST.

These boosted player upgrades are now being announced at the same time as they drop in-game in FIFA 21, unlike other years where we knew about them three hours prior.

FIFA 20 Team of the Week 32 predictions

What a week! Competitions around the world have come back for the 2020/21 season, soon after the end of last year’s staggering campaign. The back-to-back nature of these seasons, it seems, is going to lead to some exciting games.

The biggest news from the Premier League this week was Aston Villa and Tottenham each dolling out huge defeats for Liverpool and Manchester United respectively. Ollie Watkins scored three and assisted one as he led the Villans to a 7–2 victory over the champions, while Heung Min Son was unplayable against United.

There were a number of other standout performances across the weekend too. Neymar Jr. was at his electric best against Angers, while FIFA 21 cover star Erling Haaland kept up his goalscoring record in a 4–0 win over Freiburg on Saturday.

Here are our TOTW 2 predictions, so let’s see how many we got right this week!
