Union Berlin’s goalkeeper Loris Karius has had his Ultimate Team starting XI revealed and it’s packed with Team of the Year players.

With the FIFA 21 Team of the Year squad being revealed recently, it’s no surprise FIFA players everywhere are doing their best to pick up one of the winners.

The TOTY cards are some of the best-rated items on the game and can seriously step-up any lacking Ultimate Team squad. However, as they cost so much to buy, only the most dedicated and luckiest FIFA 21 players have the chance to use a number of them in one team.

Well, Union Berlin’s goalkeeper Loris Karius has five TOTY cards, two ICONS, and two Player Moments cards. So, for a professional footballer, it’s fair to say he’s got a pretty stacked starting XI.

FIFA 21 was released back in October of 2020.

Loris Karius’s Ultimate Team squad was posted to the FIFA subreddit after a player went up against him in an online match. From just a glance at Karius’ squad, you can tell he takes FIFA 21 extremely seriously.

With the likes of TOTY, Alexander-Arnold, Van Dijk, and Davies in defense and TOTY Fernandes and Ronaldo up front, it’s fair to say Karius has got a squad any FIFA player would be proud of.

That’s not even counting the ICONS, Gullit and Girrancha, that make up his impressive midfield. Of course, he’s even rounded of his squad with his own 99 rated Pro Player card between the posts.

  • CB: Jerome Boateng (90)
  • LB: Alphonso Davies (93)

  • CM: Ruud Gullit (90)
  • LM: Marcus Rashford
  • RM: Garrincha (94)
  • CAM: Bruno Fernandes (97)
  • CAM: Paulo Dybala (91)
  • ST: Cristiano Ronaldo (98)

Karius has one of the best Ultimate Team squads we’ve seen from a professional footballer so far. Unfortunately, it doesn’t quite top Erling Haaland’s full ICON starting XI just yet.

We’ll have to keep an eye on Karius’ team to see if he makes any upgrades in the upcoming months to his already stacked squad.

FIFA 21 Team of the Week 22 has been revealed by EA SPORTS, with a number of new TOTW 22 players being added to Ultimate Team. 

Fans of Everton and Borussia Dortmund will have been waiting all week to see if their Derby heroes, Richarlison and Jadon Sancho, lead the charge with upgraded cards. Of course, that expectation comes after ousting their opponents Liverpool and Schalke 04 in local clashes over the weekend. Real Madrid maestro Casemiro also looked like a shoe-in based on many people’s predictions.

Lautaro Martinez is another one fans have claimed should be in TOTW 22, after the Inter striker dismantled local title rivals Milan in yet another February grudge match. The 3–0 win, which saw Martinez score twice, put Inter in first place.

Here’s everything we know about the mid-week FIFA 21 promo, including when the Team of the Week lineup go into packs, and how the confirmed team matches up against Dexerto’s weekly predictions.

Jadon Sancho missed out last week, but the young Englishman may be included in TOTW 16 instead.
Jadon Sancho may have earned his spot in TOTW 22 after demolishing Dortmund’s local rivals Schalke.
