The next FIFA 21 Team of the Week, TOTW 8, is now live in Ultimate Team — here’s the full squad and everything we know about the new upgraded team.
International games are in focus this week, as a number of European squads looked to solidify their spots for Euro 2020. The feel-good story of the weekend was Scotland, who qualified for an international tournament for the first time since making the World Cup in 1998.
In regards to potential in-form cards, there were a number of standout stars; Sadio Mane, Georginio Wijnaldum, Timo Werner, and Riyad Mahrez all shone this weekend.
Not every domestic competition was on break though, either. Shun Nagasawa could well have booked himself a TOTW spot, after scoring a hat-trick against Gamba Osaka in the J1 League early on Saturday evening at Suita City Stadium.
Here’s everything we know about the mid-week promo so far, including the newest Team of the Week lineup in FIFA 21 Ultimate Team and Dexerto’s weekly TOTW predictions.
Team of the Week 8 – full TOTW squad
Overall, this is one of the better TOTW squads released so far in FUT 21. Headlining the team are the likes of 91-rated Sadio Mane, 89 N’Golo Kante, and a trio of 86-rated cards, including Insigne, Goretzka, and Mahrez.
There’s a handful of hero cards as well, although none of them seem too usable except for Alex Teixeira, whose Brazilian nationality makes him a viable choice.
Team of the Week 8 start time
On November 18, FIFA publishers EA SPORTS released the eighth batch of Team of the Week cards for this year. The TOTW 8 promo began at 6pm (UK time), as per usual. That means 6pm BST, 12pm CT, 1pm EST, 3am AEST for those around the world.
These boosted TOTW 8 player upgrades are now announced at the same time as they drop in-game in FIFA 21. Keep your eyes peeled on our official Twitter account — we always make sure to share the team as soon as it’s live.
