Team of the Week Moments 5 is officially upon us, bringing fresh upgrades to TOTWs from previous FIFA titles, celebrating some of the best weeks of previous seasons.

TOTW Moments has been a necessary change to the regular Team of the Week format, with the ongoing global crisis putting an end to major football leagues the world over, as no players are able to earn In-Form status.

Moments instead renews TOTW in-forms from previous iterations of FIFA, and over recent weeks we’ve seen some real wildcards get upgrades thanks to their good performances from the 2015/16 season onwards.

Some of the top talent of the past few years are seeing their stock rising in-game again.

In the previous four weeks, we’ve seen upgrades from FIFA 17, 18 and 19 come to FIFA 20, with some very mixed responses from players.

While some are pleased to see certain cards become available and get upgrades once again, some fans have questioned EA SPORTS’ decisions with certain weeks, especially in TOTW Moments 3.

FIFA 20 TOTW Moments 5 in-form cards

As always, Moments provides a healthy variety of players here, straight from FIFA 17’s TOTW 32. Some will be excited to see the likes of Lionel Messi, Anthony Martial and Andre ter Stegen turn up, but inclusions such as Christian Benteke and Max Kruse might raise some eyebrows.

In recent weeks, we’ve seen the likes of 95-rated Kevin de Bruyne in TOTW Moments 2 and 94-rated Robert Lewandowski in TOTW Moments 4.

It remains to be seen how players react to this week’s Moments, but it definitely looks like an interesting one — and there are a couple of cards to be excited about.

TOTW Moments 5 cards will be available in FUT 20 packs from 10:00 AM (PST) / 1:00 PM (EST) / 6:00 PM (BST) on Wednesday, April 15.

The wait is finally over ⁠— FIFA 21 TOTY (Team of the Year) is here, with EA SPORTS confirming the long-awaited FIFA 21 promo team is about to be revealed. Some players have already been confirmed as well, including Manchester City’s Kevin De Bruyne and Real Madrid’s Sergio Ramos.

EA has taken a bit of a different road to get to the midway point of FIFA 21 promos this release, bringing in “Headliners” early, and swapping FUTMAS to “Freeze” and the popular Halloween promo Ultimate Scream to “Rulebreakers” instead. However, all roads lead to Team of the Year eventually.

Now the iconic FIFA promo is here, bringing with it the absolute best cards Ultimate Team has to offer. These blue and gold cards are always the most sought after of the year, and often cause a massive market crash when they arrive.

This year should be no different too. Superstar names like FIFA darling Kylian Mbappe, unstoppable goalscorer Robert Lewandowski, and midfield maestro Kevin De Bruyne have been touted for inclusion – and one has now been confirmed.

Last year's Team of the Year was loaded to the brim with world-class players.

Last year’s Team of the Year was absolutely loaded to the brim with world-class players.

FIFA 21 TOTY confirmed players

Kevin De Bruyne

Only one TOTY player has been confirmed and that’s Manchester City midfielder Kevin De Bruyne. The news was posted by their official Twitter account on the morning of January 22.

Sergio Ramos

On top of that, Real Madrid have confirmed their captain Sergio Ramos once again makes the TOTY.

When will Team of the Year 2021 be revealed?

A number of EA SPORTS countdown graphics show the whole team will release on Friday, January 22.

The iconic FIFA promo should ⁠— as in previous years ⁠— run through releases for strikers, midfielders, and defenders, before adding them all to packs for one final hoorah. 

We’ll get our very first look at the promo at 6pm on Friday (GMT). Keep your eyes peeled on our Twitter accounts, @UltimateTeamUK and @FutWatch, to see the news.

Ronaldo has gone from strength to strength at Juventus — does he get into TOTY 21?

TOTY predictions: who makes the 2021 lineup?

The annual TOTY team is the best of the best; eleven world-class footballers who transcended their peers and teammates across the 2020 calendar year.

The Ultimate Team promo begins with a lengthy list of around 70 nominees. Those contenders are then whittled down with a fan vote. This year, stars like Messi, Ronaldo, De Bruyne, Neymar, Van Dijk, Lewandowski, and Mbappe headlined the choices.

In 2020, two teams reigned supreme: Liverpool and Bayern Munich. The former were crowned English champions for the first time in 30 years, while the German heavyweights defied a much-changed Champions League format to stake control over European football in a near-perfect campaign.

Each club defined a stop-start season, lifting trophies despite challenges.

Hopefully your Guaranteed Bundesliga TOTSSF SBC pack contains Robert Lewandowski.

Many think Lewandowski was robbed of a Ballon d’Or this year. His stellar year with Bayern Munich should make him a shoo-in for TOTY.

Here’s the TOTY picks the Dexerto team submitted this time around:

Possible Team of the Year lineup

  • Alisson Becker (Liverpool)
  • Alphonso Davies (Bayern Munich)
  • Sergio Ramos (Real Madrid)
  • Virgil Van Dijk (Liverpool)
  • Trent Alexander-Arnold (Liverpool)
  • Heung-min Son (Tottenham)
  • Joshua Kimmich (Bayern Munich)
  • Kevin De Bruyne (Man. City)
  • Robert Lewandowski (Bayern Munich)
  • Cristiano Ronaldo (Juventus)
  • Mohamed Salah (Liverpool)
