Tottenham Hotspur winger Steven Bergwijn has had his FIFA 21 Ultimate Team starting XI revealed again, and it’s fair to say he’s upgraded it quite considerably since we first brought it to you in November. 

Like the rest of us, Bergwijn clearly likes to play a bit of FUT to wind down, which is especially needed after coming up against a high energy Leeds United.

His earlier team was actually one of the weaker pro player XIs we’ve brought you, with a fairly standard back four. However, he has made some serious upgrades across the interim period, with 3 ICONs becoming 6. His own 99 OVR pro player still features at the LW position, but defensive changes galore mean his new XI is far better than his old one.

Steven Bergwijn became a favorite among Spurs fans, but has struggled for consistent minutes this season.

His updated XI was posted to Reddit by u/BeatySwallocks, who explained that one of his friends came up against Bergwijn on Saturday afternoon. He is still rocking the defensive 4-3-3 defensive formation, and his attacking three also remains unchanged.

Bergwijn’s pro player card is at LW, alongside R9 Ronaldo and Lionel Messi. Needless to say, it’s a very scary attacking lineup. However, behind the front three is where the changes become clear.

Patrick Vieira and Ruud Gullit join Eusebio across midfield, while the back five has been completely changed. Arsenal rival Hector Bellerin sees his 85 OVR objective card come in at RB, and Canadian speedster Alphonso Davies is drafted in at LB.

Rather bizarrely given the ICONs and superstars, Nick Pope’s standard card finds itself in goal. No disrespect intended to Nick Pope (he’s established himself as a solid GK option for any budget), but we’d expect better given the talent all over the pitch.

Below is a full comparison of his two teams, so you can see exactly what’s changed and where:

Position  Original XI New XI
GK Hugo Lloris – 87 Nick Pope – 82
RB Nelson Semedo – 83 Hector Bellerin – 85
LB Ferland Mendy – 83 Alphonso Davies – 86
CB Virgil Van Dijk – 90 Paolo Maldini – 92
CB Raphael Varane – 86 Carlos Alberto – 87
CDM N’Golo Kante – 88 Patrick Vieira – 88
CDM Ruud Gullit – 90 Ruud Gullit – 90
CM Eusebio – 91 Eusebio – 91
LW Steven Bergwijn – 99 Steven Bergwijn – 99
RW Lionel Messi – 93 Lionel Messi – 93
ST R9 Ronaldo – 94 R9 Ronaldo – 94

While other players, such as Erling Haaland, have teams stacked full of untouchable ICONs, Bergwijn has been a little more realistic with his team. We would like to see an upgrade to his goalkeeper – we’re not quite sure why he got rid of teammate Lloris in goal, perhaps he upset him in training?

It’s nice to see Jose Mourinho return in the manager role, though, even if there’s no room for any other Tottenham faces.

The forever-skillful Jay-Jay Okocha has finally gotten his Prime ICON card in FIFA 21, and you can pick him up for your Ultimate Team ⁠— if you’re willing to part way with your coins. Here’s what you need to do.

Jay-Jay Okocha really pumped flavor into football. His stylish moves made the likes of Ronaldinho household names, and the Nigerian experienced plenty of success for himself with PSG, Eintracht Frankfurt, and Bolton.

Now, he can bring success to your FIFA 21 Ultimate Team. The 90-rated Prime ICON is available through the game’s latest set of ICON SBCs, although you’ll have to be willing to part ways with a fair bit of cash for him.

Okocha’s Prime ICON card puts the legendary Nigerian into the 90s and primed for a Pace style to bump him up further theoretically.

With 87 Pace ⁠— one down from his base 85 ICON ⁠— he might not be as fast, but he makes up for it across the board with better Passing (+5), Shooting (+3), and Dribbling (+2). Throw on Hunter, and you can get up to 96 Pace and 90 Shooting. It’s a lethal card to have in CAM, especially when you take 5* Skills and 4* Weak Foot into account.

Jay-Jay Okocha ICON SBC price & requirements

Jay-Jay Okocha is the cheapest of the three new ICON SBCs, coming in at around 500,000 to 750,000 coins. If you’ve got spare cards lying around ⁠— especially high-rated untradeables ⁠— it might be worth the investment.

You’ll need to complete six SBCs for the job though. Here’s what you need to do.
