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.
