FIFA celebrates its birthday again. The first week of the FUT Birthday event started last Friday. This year, the FUT Birthday was not concerned with changing positions, which fell to the shapeshifters. Instead, the values of weak feet and skill stars are improved in the FUT Birthday. Van Dijk, for example, has five stars on his weak foot as a FUT Birthday card, whereas his regular gold variant only has three.
This is the FUT Birthday Team
These are the new special cards: The new cards from Mbappe (94), Hazard (94), Griezmann (92) and Rashford (90) are really strong.
Players with Bundesliga teams can also look forward to strong cards from Havertz (90), Hernandez (88), Guerreiro (87) and Bellarabi (88).
