EA Sports have released yet another Summer Heat squad-building challenge in FIFA 20, this time focusing on Inter Milan attacking midfielder Christian Eriksen, who boasts 5* weak foot and 5* skill moves. 

FIFA 20’s ongoing Summer Heat event has thrown a host of seriously impressive cards into the mix. The latest of these is Christian Eriksen, the Danish CAM who moved from Tottenham to Inter Milan in January.

The upgrade has given Eriksen both 5* skill moves and 5* weak foot, as well as a 6 OVR boost, making him one of the best Serie A attacking midfielders players can get their hands on.

Eriksen’s Summer Heat upgrade features a 6 OVR boost compared to his base card. However, some stat boosts go way beyond an increase of 6 – his shooting is up 14 on his base card, while his dribbling has risen 11.

His pace has also had a significant boost to 88, including 90 acceleration. Eriksen should also be an absolute monster when it comes to shots from outside the box, boasting 99 positioning, 98 shot power, and 99 long shots.

Summer Heat Christian Eriksen SBC – cost & solutions

There are two squads players need to complete in order to unlock the Summer Heat Eriksen card. The first is an Inter Milan squad, that has to contain 1 Inter player, a minimum OVR rating of 85, and team chemistry of 70 or above. This squad currently costs between 120-138k, depending on your platform.

Thanks to the people over at FUTBIN, we’ve compiled a couple of the cheapest options to complete the Eriksen SBC, not reliant on loyalty.

The second squad is a top performer squad, that requires a minimum overall of 86 and chemistry of 65 or higher. However, it also requires one TOTSSF or TOTW player, taking its cost up to 150-165k depending on the platform.

The total cost of the two squads comes out at 270-300k coins, making it more expensive than some of the other Summer Heat challenges we’ve seen, but also considerably cheaper than the one featuring Roberto Firmino.

So, finally, is the Eriksen SBC worth it? In short, it’s a tricky one to call. Other top-tier Serie A options are available for cheaper – like Luis Alberto’s 97 OVR TOTSSF card. However, other options like Paulo Dybala come in far more expensive, so it’s ultimately up to you.

If your Ultimate Team could do with a creative, long shot talent at CAM then go for it. If you want a player to be surging to the box and playing alongside your strikers, you’re probably best off going for a cheaper option.

The wait is finally over ⁠— FIFA 21 TOTY (Team of the Year) is here, with EA SPORTS confirming the long-awaited FIFA 21 promo team is about to be revealed. One player has already been confirmed as well, Manchester City’s Kevin De Bruyne.

EA has taken a bit of a different road to get to the midway point of FIFA 21 promos this release, bringing in “Headliners” early, and swapping FUTMAS to “Freeze” and the popular Halloween promo Ultimate Scream to “Rulebreakers” instead. However, all roads lead to Team of the Year eventually.

Now the iconic FIFA promo is here, bringing with it the absolute best cards Ultimate Team has to offer. These blue and gold cards are always the most sought after of the year, and often cause a massive market crash when they arrive.

This year should be no different too. Superstar names like FIFA darling Kylian Mbappe, unstoppable goalscorer Robert Lewandowski, and midfield maestro Kevin De Bruyne have been touted for inclusion – and one has now been confirmed.

Last year's Team of the Year was loaded to the brim with world-class players.

FIFA 21 TOTY confirmed players

Only one TOTY player has been confirmed and that’s Manchester City midfielder Kevin De Bruyne. The news was posted by their official Twitter account on the morning of January 22.

 When will Team of the Year 2021 be revealed?

A number of EA SPORTS countdown graphics show the whole team will release on Friday, January 22.

The iconic FIFA promo should ⁠— as in previous years ⁠— run through releases for strikers, midfielders, and defenders, before adding them all to packs for one final hoorah. 

We’ll get our very first look at the promo at 6pm on Friday (GMT). Keep your eyes peeled on our Twitter accounts, @UltimateTeamUK and @FutWatch, to see the news.

Ronaldo has gone from strength to strength at Juventus — does he get into TOTY 21?

TOTY predictions: who makes the 2021 lineup?

The annual TOTY team is the best of the best; eleven world-class footballers who transcended their peers and teammates across the 2020 calendar year.

The Ultimate Team promo begins with a lengthy list of around 70 nominees. Those contenders are then whittled down with a fan vote. This year, stars like Messi, Ronaldo, De Bruyne, Neymar, Van Dijk, Lewandowski, and Mbappe headlined the choices.

In 2020, two teams reigned supreme: Liverpool and Bayern Munich. The former were crowned English champions for the first time in 30 years, while the German heavyweights defied a much-changed Champions League format to stake control over European football in a near-perfect campaign.

Each club defined a stop-start season, lifting trophies despite challenges.

Hopefully your Guaranteed Bundesliga TOTSSF SBC pack contains Robert Lewandowski.

Many think Lewandowski was robbed of a Ballon d’Or this year. His stellar year with Bayern Munich should make him a shoo-in for TOTY.

Here’s the TOTY picks the Dexerto team submitted this time around:

Possible Team of the Year lineup

  • Alisson Becker (Liverpool)
  • Alphonso Davies (Bayern Munich)
  • Sergio Ramos (Real Madrid)
  • Virgil Van Dijk (Liverpool)
  • Trent Alexander-Arnold (Liverpool)
  • Heung-min Son (Tottenham)
  • Joshua Kimmich (Bayern Munich)
  • Kevin De Bruyne (Man. City)
  • Robert Lewandowski (Bayern Munich)
  • Cristiano Ronaldo (Juventus)
  • Mohamed Salah (Liverpool)
