On February 17, EA SPORTS released the third FIFA 21 Future Stars Academy challenge of 2021, with Leicester City centre back Wesley Fofana earning himself a significantly upgraded card.

Fofana has been a standout player for Leicester City in a season where they look like they could be legitimate contenders to become Premier League champions.

The Frenchman joined Leicester from Saint Etienne at the start of the 2020/21 season and has had an immediate impact as a regular starter, despite fighting through injury in February 2021.

The 20-year-old is earning fans from even outside of Leicester and is clearly one to watch for the future: and EA obviously think so too.

Fofana’s defensive stats speak for themselves.

Obviously, this challenge is going to take a while so don’t expect to complete this all quickly. The promo ends on March 17 for a reason: you will have to play a lot of matches to get this done, and hope things go your way.

With so much strong competition at center-back, it’s not quite clear whether this Fofana can become a serious asset for top players, especially with the likes of Virgil Van Dijk and Raphael Varane dominating the meta.

However, it’s clearly a good card, and should end up a solid option at the back if you’re trying to make a strong team on a budget.

A new Flashback SBC is now live in FIFA 21, with Real Madrid’s Toni Kroos getting a boosted card. Here’s what you need to know. 

Flashbacks are always a fun addition to Ultimate Team, as they let you grab powerful throwback cards for players that take them back to a special moment or a prime time during their career.

This latest standalone SBC celebrates Kroos’s prolific 2017-2018 LaLiga season playing for Real Madrid with a very nice 93 OVR card that could definitely beef up your midfield lineup.

Toni Kroos Flashback SBC requirements & price

There are three total squads all with their own sets of requirements to knock out in order to complete this SBC, and on top of unlocking Kroos’s powered-up card at the end, you’ll also get a pack reward for each set of challenges.

To grab the German midfielder for yourself you’ll need to build one Bundesliga-themed squad, one La Liga-themed one, and finally, a Top Form challenge to wrap it all up.

The catch is that all three require fairly high ratings: 83 for Bundesliga, 84 for LaLiga, and 85 for Top Form, which just might be where the high price tag is coming from.

Bundesliga

  • Number of players from Bundesliga: Min 1
  • IF Players: Min 1
  • Squad Rating: Min 83
  • Team Chemistry: Min 80
  • Number of players in the Squad: 11

  • IF Players: Min 1
  • Squad Rating: Min 84
  • Team Chemistry: Min 75
  • Number of players in the Squad: 11
  • Reward: 1 Prime Electrum Players Pack

Top Form

  • Reward: 1 Premium Gold Players Pack

Toni Kroos Flashback SBC cost & cheap solutions

Altogether, this SBC should run you around 332,000 to 370,000 FUT Coins to get it all done. Be sure to check back soon as we’ll be posting the cheapest solutions, that don’t require any loyalty or position change cards, right here as they become available.


If you want to make Kroos’s powerful new card your own, you have three weeks (21 days) until March 16 to get everything all wrapped up.
