Brazilian defender Miranda has been awarded a 91-rated flashback card in FIFA 20 Ultimate Team that can only be unlocked via a new squad building challenge (SBC). So, here’s how you can get your hands on it. 

Since FIFA Ultimate Team first began back in FIFA 09, overpowered Brazilian defenders have been the bane of many players. You have names like Felipe Santana, Dante, Naldo, Juan Jesus, and David Luiz  – with Miranda joining that illustrious group on occasion.

The former Atletico Madrid and Inter Milan defender now plies his trade for Jiangsu Suning in the Chinese Super League, meaning that you might not see him all that often in Ultimate Team anymore. Though, for anyone who remembers how good he was for Atletico, EA SPORTS have dropped an insane Flashback card.

Flashback Miranda in-game stats

The 91-rated card comes well equipped with all of Miranda’s classic stats – pace, strength, tackling, and heading – meaning it’ll feel like you dropped right back into FIFA 13.

His in-game pace is solid at 83 sprint speed and 79 acceleration, while 95 strength means he will be ultra-tough to get past as an attacker. If a player does manage to beat him, though, the Brazilian can make up for it with 90 sliding tackle. The only real downside is his stamina as it only clocks in at 73.

Flashback Miranda SBC requirements

As for the challenges you’ll need to complete, there isn’t a whole host of them that you will need to tick off – EA SPORTS have only added two SBCs for Miranda’s Flashback challenge.

One of the squad building challenges will require you to build a Brazilian-focused lineup while the other has to clock in with at least an 85 overall rating. 

Brazil

  • Number of players from Brazil: Min 1
  • Squad Rating: Min 84
  • Team Chemistry: Min 80
  • Number of players in the Squad: 11

85-rated Squad

  • Squad Rating: Min 85
  • Team Chemistry: Min 75
  • Number of players in the Squad: 11

Miranda Flashback cost and SBC solutions

Despite only having two teams to builds, the Flashback Miranda SBC isn’t all that cheap. According to FUTBIN, the card will set Xbox players back around 157k, PS4 players in the region of 144k, while Origin on PC clocks in at close to 160k.

Though, to make things a little easier on your FUT coin balance, we’ve got a solution for each challenge that isn’t too expensive and doesn’t require player loyalty.

Though, if you want to get your hands on the Flashback card, you haven’t got all that long. The Miranda SBC will conclude on Monday, April 20

So, you’ll have to act fast and get those challenges completed if you want the Brazilian to have a home in your club.

FIFA 21 TOTY promo LIVE: De Bruyne confirmed & team release time

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)
