EA SPORTS have added two brand new Squad Building Challenges to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day in FIFA 20, with Flashback cards and a bonus pack available to unlock for a limited time.

The game’s developers have held Paddy’s Day events in the game in the past, including tournaments where people would build Republic of Ireland teams and compete for the chance to win rewards.


In FIFA 20, though, things will be a lot different, with limited-time SBCs with incredible rewards rolled out by EA. Completing the Boys in Green challenge will give you the difficult choice of having to pick one of three Flashback cards in Player Pick format, and you can also grab a pack for completing the Leprechauns team.

So, let’s take a look at those rewards, the requirements for these challenges, how much they cost and potential solutions as well.


How to complete St. Patrick’s Day SBCs in FIFA 20

Boys in Green Player Pick rewards: Flashback Coleman, McGeady and Long

Starting with the rewards, seen below, there are three Flashbacks available to choose from, ranging from 86 to 88 overall. These are Seamus Coleman (86), Aiden McGeady (88) and Shane Long (87). This is a non-repeatable reward, meaning it can only be done once, and will be available until March 21.

Here are the rewards for completing the St. Patrick’s Day Green Boys SBC.

Boys in Green SBC cost and requirements

The Boys in Green SBC in FIFA 20 isn’t actually too expensive, considering how pacy all three of the reward cards are. They would make fine additions to teams, particularly Premier League Ultimate Teams.

According to the FUTBIN database, it costs around 86,000 on PlayStation 5, 93,000 on Xbox One and almost 89,000 on PC. Do keep in mind, however, these prices will fluctuate depending on how many players are looking to complete the SBC.


Requirements can be found below:

  • In-form players: Min 1
  • Squad rating: Min 85
  • Team chemistry: Min 75
  • Reward: Flashback Player Pick (Coleman, McGeady, Long)

Boys in Green SBC solution

Here is one way the Boys in Green SBC can be completed in FIFA 20. Just the one in-form card will suffice.

Now that the first challenge is out of the way, you will be able to pick up one of the three Flashback cards. However, there’s then the small matter of the second St. Patrick’s Day SBC – Leprechauns. Let’s take a look at how to complete it.

FIFA 20 Leprechauns SBC reward, deadline and cost

Just for completing the Leprechauns Squad Building Challenge, players can pick up one Rare Players Pack – which is worth 50,000 coins. However, you can get it for a fraction of that price for a limited time, as this SBC is only sticking around until March 20. It is also non-repeatable.


The cost of this one varies, again, depending on platform. According to FUTBIN, it’s setting PlayStation 4 players back 10,000 coins, Xbox One players 14,000 and on PC, just 10,000 as well, making it totally worth doing.

Leprechauns SBC requirements and solution

Starting with the requirements, you only have to make one team, just like the Boys in Green. However, there are a few more restrictions with this. Check it out:

  • Number of players from Republic of Ireland: Min 1
  • Same league count: Max 3
  • Same club count: Max 2
  • Rare: Min 6
  • Squad rating: Min 75
  • Team chemistry: Min 85
  • Player in team: 11

The solution for this challenge can be found below. Again, remember the market may fluctuate, so some may be more expensive than others, and having loyalty on one of two players helps as well. Here, though, you shouldn’t need any loyalty at all.

A player with loyalty adds an extra one to a team’s chemistry, but you won’t need that here.

So, there you have it! While many people across Ireland, and other parts of the world too, will be celebrating St. Paddy’s Day with a pint of Guinness, you can celebrate in FIFA 20 by reaping the rewards of these two challenges. Have a good one!


FIFA 21 TOTW 2 live: Lewandowski, Haaland, Kane, Saint-Maximin, more

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.
