Borussia Dortmund’s flying winger Julian Brandt has assembled an extremely impressive FIFA 20 Ultimate Team and, even though he has some of the best players in history at his disposal, he still managed to squeeze his own card in.
The Germany international has been spotted playing FUT Rivals, possibly in an attempt to qualify for the Weekend League, and his opponent decided to share the star-studded starting 11 with members of the game’s online community.
Brandt’s base card is already good enough to make it into some fans’ squads, but just like many other professional footballers, he’s been handed a 99-rated card by EA SPORTS. To the surprise of absolutely nobody, it leads the line in his Ultimate Team.
There seems to be a common theme emerging with pro players’ Ultimate Teams, too, as they’re always jam-packed with Brazilians. It’s not hard to see why, though, considering the qualities of the Ronaldinho and Pele Icon cards that he owns.
Virgil van Dijk, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Quincy Promes have already had their FUT teams revealed by their opposite numbers in recent times, and there were also a lot of Brazil internationals in their sides as well.
We’re not here to talk about them, though, so let’s take a look at Brandt’s. He’s gone for a 4-2-2-2 formation.

Some members of the game’s online community responded to the thread, including the uploader Kombic, who claimed the match with whoever was controlling ‘Brandy FC’ didn’t last long.
“He rage quitted in the 43rd minute after I scored one of the most BS goals I have scored in FIFA 20,” they said.
A handful of users pointed out that it might not have been Brandt playing the match, however, as his brother also plays his fair share of Ultimate Team. Whether or not that was the case here is actually unknown. Whoever plays with this team, though, has certainly got an unbelievable bunch of players on their hands.
