Is there a FIFA 23 World Cup FUT mode?

In the past, EA have released a World Cup Ultimate Team mode where players could build another squad from scratch with all the players competing for their nations. However, this sadly won’t be the case in FIFA 23, and all Qatar 2022 FUT content will be part of the normal Ultimate Team experience.
