Zweback explains why Boateng’s Fifa 20 Flashback SBC is a ‘must-do’

YouTube star Zweback has got his hands on FIFA 20’s new Jerome Boateng Flashback card, and after playing a handful of matches with the Bayern defender’s SBC upgrade, he’s dubbed it a “must-do.”

Boateng’s new limited-edition card sees the German world champion’s FIFA card boosted from an 84-rated gold to an “elite” 91-rated Flashback. After its release on March 12, FIFA YouTuber Zweback got his hands on the new upgrade.


Despite a few dodgy moments as he got his eye in with the rare defender, Zweback was soon raving about the Bayern star’s upgrade ⁠— especially the fact the squad building challenge will last until the end of this FIFA cycle.

Boateng’s Flashback SBC was released on March 11, and will be available until the end of FIFA 20.

The first thing Zweback said stunned him about Boateng was his price. The new rare card goes for just over 300k coins on console, and a small chunk more on PC, which immediately shot him to “top tier” in the YouTuber’s eyes.


“He’s forever? That’s huge, he’s going to be there until the end of the game. Is this the first Flashback card that we’ve seen get this treatment?” he said, before adding it was a “huge dub.” “I like that there’s no expiry, that’s very good.”

An initial rocky game with Boateng nearly shook Zweback’s faith in the German defender’s elite card though. After two or three strong tackles, the Flashback card was responsible for two goals in a row. However, things soon turned around.

“He feels decent on the ball, close dribbling feels really good,” the FIFA star said, and added Boateng was “always the first to trackback” when he lost possession.


In particular, though, the Flashback card’s “elite” 94 long passing, and the distribution that comes with that, was the standout, Zwe said. “His distribution is really good. If there’s one center-back that deserves that, it’s definitely Boateng.”

Zweback surrounded Boateng’s new card with some of the best Bundesliga stars FIFA coins can buy.

There were a few concerns Zweback voiced too ⁠— the card’s 74 stamina was “relatively low” for an endgame card, and when controlled by the AI he regularly tried to pull off slide tackles ⁠— but overall the YouTuber said he was impressed.

“After that first one, Boateng had a near-perfect few games. I think he’s probably a four out of five for performances… very, very strong on the ball, and ball control was good. And that top level passing was very nice to see as well,” he said.


“Honestly, I’m kind of regretting Hummels ⁠now, I’m kind of regretting his Flashback SBC. It wasn’t super expensive, maybe around 100k, but this Boateng is just nuts. Just make sure you do him before Team of the Season rolls around.”

Boateng was awarded his Flashback upgrade to celebrate his role in the German club’s treble-winning 2012/2013 season. The German champions claimed the Bundesliga, DFB-Pokal and Champions League, all in the same year.

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

The full Team of the Week #2 in FIFA 21 Ultimate Team!

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)
  • Ben Chilwell (84)
  • Theo Hernandez (83)
  • Jack Grealish (83)
  • Ollie Watkins (81)
  • Allan Saint-Maximin (83)
  • Renato Sanchez (82)
  • Marcel Halstenberg (84)

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.
