Sevilla’s Alex Pozo has his FIFA 20 Ultimate Team revealed

Sevilla winger Alex Pozo has had his FIFA 20 Ultimate Team revealed, and it’s a pretty impressive collection of cards, but is there room for any of his Spanish compatriots?

At just 21 years old, Alejandro ”Alex” Pozo is one of Spain’s most exciting young wingers. Despite only three appearances for Sevilla’s senior side, he has enjoyed successful loan spells at both Granada and Mallorca, and has made 19 appearances for Spain’s youth sides.

It seems the young winger is spending his time in lockdown the same way as most of us – with an abundance of video games. During the FUT Champions Weekend League for April 17-19, he came up against one FIFA fan who’s subsequently shared the impressive XI Pozo boasts.

One FIFA Redditor shared Pozo’s XI on April 18 after coming up against the young winger online. While his side is not as strong as some we’ve seen – like Juan Bernat’s 93 OVR rated outfit – it’s still pretty ridiculous.

Goalkeeper ICON Edwin van der Sar is protected by an insane backline made up of Sergio Ramos, Rio Ferdinand, Gianluca Zambrotta, and the SBC variant of MLS defender Ike Opara.

The midfield is where we begin to see some stranger picks, however. Mohamed Salah at CAM is understandable, but Hernan Crespo at CM seems bizarre, especially when legendary England midfielder Steven Gerrard is playing ST.

The front three is completed with Pozo’s own 99 rated card at LW and Lionel Messi at RW, but a number of fans were confused by the midfield and striker choices.

We also got a unique look at Pozo’s own 99 OVR card, with the Redditor securing a snap after Pozo scored against him. With defending the only statistic to fall below 96, it’s no surprise that Pozo managed to score.

 

There’s no room in the XI for any fellow Sevilla teammates, but Ramos, Messi and de Jong make up the LaLiga Santander players in the side. Pozo’s full team is detailed below:

  • GK: Edwin van der Sar – 89
  • RB: Sergio Ramos – 93
  • CB: Rio Ferdinand – 90
  • CB: Ike Opara – 88
  • LB: Gianluca Zambrotta – 87
  • CM: Hernan Crespo – 87
  • CAM: Mohamed Salah – 92
  • CM: Frenkie De Jong – 94
  • LW: Alex Pozo – 99
  • ST: Steven Gerrard – 89
  • RW: Lionel Messi – 94

There’s a couple of areas that could be improved, namely Crespo in midfield, Gerrard up-top, and Zambrotta at LB. Regardless, it’s a pretty outstanding XI, spearheaded by Pozo’s own incredible card.

EA SPORTS have released the second batch of Team of the Week players in FIFA 21 Ultimate Team, and it looks like there are some exciting cards up for grabs this week.

Following the completion of another busy game week across football’s top-flight leagues, a new set of TOTW players has been released, featuring some huge names and valuable cards.

Dexerto made a number of predictions earlier in the week, included at the bottom of this article, so let’s see how they stacked up with leaks and ultimately, the official team as well.

FIFA 21 Team of the Week 2

Just as with the first Team of the Week, the second TOTW squad is stacked with top talent, such as the likes of Lewandowski, Courtois, Kane, and Haaland. While not as high-rated as those studs, the likes of Milan’s Hernandez and Newcastle’s Saint-Maximin should also draw a lot of attention as being “meta” players.

Here are some of the players you might be interested in:

  • Erling Haaland (86)
  • Robert Lewandowski (92)
  • Harry Kane (89)
  • Thibaut Courtois (90)

FIFA 21 Team of the Week 2 leaked

Ahead of EA SPORTS confirming the full TOTW #2, the full squad was claimed to have been leaked – and the leaker even managed to get his hands on the same image that EA would end up tweeting out.

When did TOTW 2 go live in FIFA 21?

EA SPORTS revealed this next FIFA Team of the Week squad at 6PM (UK time) Wednesday, October 7, 2020. As per usual, they were announced and droped into packs at 6pm BST / 12pm CT / 1pm EST / 3am AEST.

These boosted player upgrades are now being announced at the same time as they drop in-game in FIFA 21, unlike other years where we knew about them three hours prior.

FIFA 20 Team of the Week 32 predictions

What a week! Competitions around the world have come back for the 2020/21 season, soon after the end of last year’s staggering campaign. The back-to-back nature of these seasons, it seems, is going to lead to some exciting games.

The biggest news from the Premier League this week was Aston Villa and Tottenham each dolling out huge defeats for Liverpool and Manchester United respectively. Ollie Watkins scored three and assisted one as he led the Villans to a 7–2 victory over the champions, while Heung Min Son was unplayable against United.

There were a number of other standout performances across the weekend too. Neymar Jr. was at his electric best against Angers, while FIFA 21 cover star Erling Haaland kept up his goalscoring record in a 4–0 win over Freiburg on Saturday.

Here are our TOTW 2 predictions, so let’s see how many we got right this week!
