EA Sports have released a brand new FIFA 20 Ultimate Team squad building challenge, this time focusing on Leicester City midfielder James Maddison and his victory in the ePremierLeague Invitational. 

James Maddison will be well known to all Premier League fans. Despite being with Leicester since 2018, the 2019-20 season has seen him break out in a fashion few players are capable of. He has appeared in nearly all of Leicester’s matches this season, anchoring their midfield as they aim to qualify for the Champions League.

However, it seems like he is also fairly talented when it comes to football simulation too. He won the Premier League’s recent invitational tournament, held as the division strives to restart real-life football.

James Maddison Player Moments SBC: Solution & Cost

As you can see, the card is pretty highly rated. Barring PHY and DEF, all of Maddison’s statistics come in at 87 or higher. Many fans argued that Maddison should have featured in FIFA 20’s Premier League TOTSSF, but this Player Moments card will go some way to fill that void.

In order to unlock the James Maddison card, players have to complete three squads. One is based on Leicester, one on England and the final one on the Premier League. The total cost comes in at roughly 170-185k, depending on your platform.

Detailed below, and courtesy of FUTBIN, are some of the cheapest solutions to each squad, not requiring loyalty. First off, ‘The Foxes’ squad, that comes in at roughly 35,000 coins. It requires:

  • Min. 1 player from Leicester City
  • Min. 1 player from TOTW or TOTW Moments
  • Min. Team Rating 83
  • Min. Team Chemistry 80

The second squad, focusing on England, will cost around 45-50k, depending on your platform. It requires:

  • Min. 1 England player
  • Min. Team Rating 84
  • Min. Team Chemistry 75

Finally, the Premier League squad which, coming in at around 90,000 coins, is the most expensive squad required to complete the challenge. It requires:

  • Min. 1 Premier League player
  • Min. Team Rating 85
  • Min. Team Chemistry 70

So, is James Maddison worth it? At 170,000, he’s certainly more reasonable than some of the PL TOTSSF midfielders. Jordan Henderson, for example, comes in at roughly 550,000 coins. While Mateo Kovacic comes in at 140,000, he’s far more defensive-minded than Maddison’s card.

In short, he certainly looks like a more affordable CM to boost your squad. However, his English nationality means he probably can’t be used for many hybrid squads, so it really comes down to what kind of Ultimate Team you’re building.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic blasts EA over FIFA 21 game face rights

AC Milan’s Zlatan Ibrahimovic has had the whole world talking about him due to his insane scoring run in Serie A, but has opened a new debate with FIFA 21 makers EA SPORTS over his game face rights. 

His team is sitting pretty at the top of the table in Italy’s top flight, and after scoring two goals in Milan’s 3-1 victory over Napoli on November 22, much of the talk surrounding the player was about a possible inclusion in Team of the Week 9.

That being said, if there’s one thing Zlatan does better than anybody, it’s control the conversation about him.

He certainly did that on November 23, as he took to Twitter to blast EA SPORTS for using his game face without “permission” – he says.

In a series of tweets, the player said: “Who gave FIFA EA Sport permission to use my name and face? I’m not aware to be a member of Fifpro and if I am I was put there without any real knowledge through some weird manouver. And for sure I never allowed FIFA.com or Fifpro to make money using me.

“Somebody is making profit on my name and face without any agreement all these years. Time to investigate,” he adds in a follow-up.

As expected, the move has sent shockwaves on the social media platform.

The Swede is accusing EA SPORTS of using his face to make money, though his club AC Milan actually signed an exclusive agreement this year to allow the developers to use accurate face scans for the entire team. The same goes for other EA Official Partner Clubs, such as Real Madrid and Inter Milan.

AC Milan are one of many EA Official Partner clubs.

There appears to be some confusion about the situation, between player, club and developer, and this story is likely to be a developing one. Should we hear more from Zlatan or other official sources, we’ll be sure to keep this article updated.

Fans of AS Roma will know the feeling of seeing their club restrict devs from using their player likenesses and official club branding in FIFA 21. Should Ibrahimovic pursue this further from a legal standpoint, there’s a chance his likeness could also be restricted for FIFA games in the future.
