Another Squad Building Challenge is live for FIFA 21 Ultimate Team’s Rulebreakers promo – this time for Pierre Kunde Malong – and we’ve got the requirements, solutions, in-game stats, and everything else you need to complete it.

Rulebreakers is well and truly underway in FUT 21, introducing new cards to Ultimate Team that “defy the status quo by tearing up the pitch with unique permanent upgrades.”

The latest untradeable item to be released as part of this promotion is for Cameroonian midfielder Pierre Kunde Malong, who applies his trade in the Bundesliga for FSV Mainz 05.

In-game stats for Malong’s Rulebreakers SBC card in FIFA 21 Ultimate Team FUT.

Normally a 76-rated CDM, Malong’s base gold card has been upgraded to an 83-overall, and instead of featuring just pace and physicality, it now boasts some impressive stats that make him a great box-to-box midfielder.

While the 82 pace has been lowered to 77, all of the other categories have been significantly boosted, none more so than the +14 given to his overall defending, including massive increases in interceptions, defensive awareness, and both standing and sliding tackle.

Malong Rulebreakers SBC requirements, solutions, cost

This SBC has two squad building components, and FIFA database website FUTBIN estimates it to cost around 75,000 coins on PS4, 90,000 on Xbox One, and 90,000 on Origin PC.

BUNDESLIGA:

  • Number of players from Bundesliga: Min 1
  • Squad Rating: Min 83
  • Team Chemistry: Min 80
  • Players in Squad: 11
  • Reward: Mixed Players Pack

85-RATED SQUAD:

  • Squad Rating: Min 85
  • Team Chemistry: Min 75
  • Players in Squad: 11
  • Reward: Gold Players Pack

Here are the cheapest solutions for both SBC components, neither of which using any position-change cards or requiring loyalty.

Is this SBC worth doing?

There’s no denying that Malong’s card packs a punch when it comes to being a box-to-box midfielder, but his price might be a little too steep for a nationality that’s not really used much in FUT.

Those looking to build a powerful Bundesliga side would do well using this Rulebreakers item, but for everyone else, it might be better to shy away from completing it.

Either way, you’ll have plenty of time to decide – this SBC was made available for a whole week and won’t be expiring until Saturday, October 31.

Son Hyung-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.
