EA Sports launched their FIFA 21 Ultimate Team Future Stars promo last week, releasing a team of 11 bright, young players that have received extra juiced up cards to reflect their real-life future potential. Future Stars has become one of the most highly anticipated promos throughout the whole of Ultimate Team, so it has been great to see EA come to the table with some stellar content to go alongside the team itself.
With Team 2 set to be released later this week, let’s take a look at four players the FIFA community would love to see make the cut:
Bukayo Saka – Arsenal
One of the more shocking omissions from Team 1, Bukayo Saka has long been considered a lock for the Future Stars team. The 19-year old has been a rare shining light in an otherwise bleak season for the Gunners, with his pace and dribbling providing highlights for even the most pessimistic Arsenal supporter. A snub from Team 2 would cause virtual riots among the FIFA community.
Xavi Simons – Paris Saint-Germain
Another highly-touted feature in Team 1, EA, would be brave not to consider the 17-year old Dutch wunderkind from PSG for a midfield spot in Team 2. With his eye-catching hair and ability to control a game, Simons has been making waves as a star of the future ever since he signed for Barcelona back in 2010.
Ansu Fati – Barcelona
A player that has featured in most of our teams at one point or another throughout FIFA 21, Ansu Fati is known for his blistering pace and agile dribbling. Before being struck down by injury in November, he was in a rich vein of form for Barcelona. In fact, his form was so good he was named as the La Liga Player Of The Month for September. If Fati were to receive a Future Stars card later this week, it is certainly not one that I would want to be playing against.
Wesley Fofana – Leicester City
A pricey purchase by Leicester back in October, the 20-year old Frenchman has cemented himself as one of rising defensive stars of the future. Being French and in the English Premier League, Fofana would be a tasty option at centre back with links to some of the Ultimate Team’s best players.
FIFA 21 is currently available on PC, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch.
