EA SPORTS have released a new Flashback SBC for Turkey/Werder Bremen midfielder Nuri Şahin in FIFA 20 Ultimate Team (FUT), and we’ve got the requirements, cheapest solutions, in-game stats, and everything else you need to complete it.

One of the more popular and oft-released SBCs in FIFA Ultimate Team, Flashback cards are meant to celebrate a highlight-worthy season from a player’s career, whether domestically, internationally, or both.

The latest Flashback SBC, released on April 23, honors Nuri Şahin’s 2010-11 campaign, in which he played an instrumental role in Borussia Dortmund winning the Bundesliga title.

Şahin Flashback SBC in-game stats

This is only Şahin’s second card in FIFA 20, following his base gold version that’s 78-rated. Overall, he’s gotten monumental stat boosts in every category, most notably pace (+46) and physical (+23).

His passing and physical are impeccable, with the former featuring all six in-game stats over 90 and the latter having three that are 90+. On top of all that, EA have also upgraded his weak foot from three stars to four, which is something usually reserved for the FUT Birthday cards.

All in all, while his default position is CDM, he looks more suited to be a box-to-box midfielder that can make the final pass, critical tackles, and put the ball in the back of the net when needed.

There are two squad building components in this SBC – Past and Present and Bundesliga, each offering their own pack reward in addition to the Flashback item.

PAST AND PRESENT

  • Players from Borussia Dortmund + SV Werder Bremen: Min 1
  • In-Form or TOTW Moments players: Min 1
  • Squad Rating: Min 83
  • Team Chemistry: Min 80
  • Players in squad: 11
  • Reward: Jumbo Premium Gold Pack

BUNDESLIGA

  • Players from Bundesliga: Min 1
  • Squad Rating: Min 85
  • Team Chemistry: Min 75
  • Players in squad: 11
  • Reward: Prime Mixed Players Pack

FIFA database website FUTBIN estimates that this SBC currently costs around 137,000 coins on PlayStation 4, 140,000 on Xbox One, and 142,000 on Origin.

Here is the cheapest current solution for the Past and Present component, without requiring loyalty or position-change cards.

It’s worth noting that the volatile nature of the FUT market means that player prices are always fluctuating, so the cost of doing this SBC could go up or down depending on when you attempt it.

Is Nuri Şahin’s Flashback SBC worth doing?

It’s hard to determine if this card is worth trying to get; while the stats are impeccable and top-tier, Şahin is not an easy player to link, and putting over 100,000 coins into an untradeable SBC always comes with some sort of risk.

If you have a good Bundesliga squad that needs a box-to-box midfielder or CDM, or a team full of ICONS that make links less relevant, then this is worth doing, especially if you have cards in your club that can further cut down the cost.

Other than that, it’s probably better to pass on this one, especially with Team of the Season So Far around the corner, chances are there will be plenty of Bundesliga midfielders with comparable stats to Şahin’s.

Either way, you’ll have to decide quickly because this SBC is only around for a very limited time and will be expiring on Tuesday, April 28.

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)
