Wycombe Wanderers striker Adebayo Akinfenwa has got a pretty nice Rulebreakers card in FIFA 21, and you can get your hands on it by completing four objectives. 

The second week of the Rulebreakers promo went live in FIFA 21 on Friday, October 30, bringing plenty of new cards and content for players to dig through. 

The Paul Pogba, Romelu Lukaku, and Marco Reus cards are the standouts from the second team of Rulebreakers players, but they’re so expensive, not everyone is going to have the coins to get them. 

Again, last the first week, EA SPORTS have offered up a free card through completing objectives and this time it’s Adebayo Akinfenwa. So, let us run you through his new stats and the objectives you need to complete.

FIFA 21 Akinfenwa Rulebreakers stats & objectives

As you can see, the Wycome Wanderers striker has been given a significant boost to his pace and his shooting – making him an interesting card to use now. Of course, he still has his trademark strength too. 

In terms of getting your hands on him, that revolves around the Live FUT Friendly – No Boundaries. This friendly, which requires you team to have at least five leagues in the starting lineup, is played without any rules, so no worrying about fouls or offsides. 

So, if your team matches the requirements, simply hop into a game and complete the objectives below to earn the card, some XP, and a few packs as well.

  • Loving Liverpool: Play 3 games with at least 1 Liverpool in your starting squad in the Live FUT Friendly: No Boundaries
  • Heading Up: Score a header in 2 separate matches in the Live FUT Friendly: No Boundaries
  • Championship Class: Score 3 games with EFL Championship players in your starting squad in the Live FUT Friendly: No Boundaries
  • Unleash the Beast: Score in 2 separate matches using players with min. 81 Physical in the Live FUT Friendly: No Boundaries

There are only four objectives needed for Akinfenwa.

Obviously, the new Akinfenwa card is perfect for Championship teams, but he can also fit in as a bench option for others – say if you have a corner late on and want to cause havoc. 

However, you haven’t got too long to get your hands on him. The objective will expire on Tuesday, November 3rd, so you’ll have to get your skates on if you want Akinfenwa.

Son Heung-min builds his dream “Ultimate player” in FIFA 21

Tottenham star Son Heung-Min sat down with Irish footballer David Meyer to build the ultimate Hotspur card for FUT 21, and it would be an absolute titan were it real.

Son is generally considered one of the best wingers playing today, and was named EA Sports Premier League Player of the Month for the third time in October 2020.

Along with Meyer, the South Korean concocted an Ultimate Teammate, a monster of a card combining the best stats from Tottenham players including himself, albeit a bit reluctantly.

Each of the six stats that make up a FIFA player card — Pace, Shooting, Passing, Dribbling, Defense, and Physical — were included, and the end result is a Frankenstein’s Monster of skill that you would never want to go up against (though, we’d take him on our squad).

So, let’s take a look at what Son managed to cook up, starting with Pace, and running on through the list:

Pace — Lucas Moura

EA Sports
Lucas is certainly speedy, so we can’t fault Son here.

For any fan of the Spurs, the choice of Lucas Moura for best Pace will come as no surprise, boasting a highly decent 92 on his regular gold card.

“Lucas is definitely faster than me,” Son laughed, when prodded by Meyer that he might actually have the edge in speed. EA apparently agrees, only giving the Winger an 88 Pace for his standard card.

Shooting — Harry Kane

Who else but Harry Kane? That 92 shooting will fit in quite nicely.

For shooting, the choice was none other than Harry Kane, who comes in with 92 in that category, one of the highest on Tottenham.

Again, Son was reluctant to name himself. Possibly because he’s a crack FIFA expert and was aware Kane has six more points in shooting than his 86, that, or he’s just doesn’t want to leave anyone out.

Dribbling — Lucas Moura

Despite considering Steven Bergwijn and himself (again) for best dribbling on Tottenham, Son once again went with the reliable pick of Moura.

While Bergwijn is only an 85 DRB, it could have really gone either way between the final two contestants, but an unwillingness to give himself much credit led to Lucas getting picked once again.

Passing — Giovani Lo Celso

Argentine Giovani Lo Celso was Son’s pick for Tottenham’s best passer.

For Passing, Midfielder Giovani Lo Celso got the nod, but only comes in with an 82 for his standard card in the stat. Still, we have to remember this was only Tottenham players that were able to be picked.

That, and Son has hooked with Son quite a few times for memorable goals over their careers, which could have been another factor in the pick.

Defending —Toby Alderweireld

Belgian back Toby Alderweireld’s 85 DEF got him a spot on the Ultimate card.

After joking that the upgrade to make his DEF 45 for his latest POTM card might be enough to finally make him choose himself, Son made a more reasonable choice and went with Alderweireld.

87 Defence is definitely nothing to scoff at, and put together with our sixth and final stat, it helps to make this “Ultimate Card” absolutely freakish.

Physical — Moussa Sissoko

Looking at the stats, it’s easy to see why Sissoko got the pick here.

Finally, rounding things out at Physical is Moussa Sissoko who comes in with an 89 — his best stat by far. This was one area where Son probably wouldn’t be considered either, on top of Defense.

Altogether, we get a 99 OVR card boasting 92 Pace, 91 Shooting, 82 Passing, 87 Dribbling, 87 Defense, and 89 Physical. Just imagine for a moment the price tag that would come along with the SBC for this bad boy.

EA Sports
An absolute monstrosity, in more ways than one.

Luckily, Son’s Ultimate Teammate card will most likely never make it into FIFA 21 itself, as it would be massively overpowered — if you haven’t picked up on that already.
