FIFA 22 FUT Birthday Team 2 Prediction: Messi drops!

Written by Stakester

The first FUT Birthday team is already in packs, so let’s take a look at the potential team 2!

FUT Birthday Team 1 items are currently some of the hottest property on the FUT transfer market – but the fun isn’t over yet! This Friday, the second set of items (celebrating 13 years of FUT) will be in packs, SBCs and objectives. As of yet, the main leakers on social media have been quiet, but here’s the team we think is going to be coming to FUT 22!

Lionel Messi

Given Messi’s quiet start to life in the French capital, we’ve not seen many special cards given to La Pulga Atomica in FIFA 22’s Ultimate Team – especially when compared to his rival Cristiano Ronaldo. That’s why we think Messi is a good shout to receive a FUT Birthday card!

At 96 overall, this card is definitely going to be a bank breaker, but even just a quick glance at his stats tells you why; some of the best dribbling stats in the game as well as ridiculously high shooting and passing – this card will cause some serious problems for keepers and defenders alike. His pace might not be what it once was, but that’s nothing the right chemistry style can’t fix.

Heung Min Son

Our second prediction is the wideman from Spurs. Here’s another player with crazy ability who has kept pretty under the radar this year. A card of this quality could really go a long way to sprucing up some of those Premier League squads out there!

Having this man out on your wing with a nice link to Kane’s 93 Flashback card would be a sight to behold! With all major attacking stats around the 90 mark, there’s not much more you want from a pacey winger!

Jadon Sancho

Sancho would have gotten his name in the papers had his goal against Man City sparked a comeback at the weekend – but now he could be in the news for something much more exciting, a FUT Birthday card (sorry, not sorry United fans)! 

The pace boost that could possibly come with a FUT Birthday card would be insane for Sancho, given that he usually sits at a sluggish 83 pace, even on his 88 Ones to Watch. A pace boost like this would definitely catapult the English wideman into the META of the game, so you can expect his price tag to rocket.

Roberto Firmino

A man who is slowly falling out of favour at Liverpool, Firmino looks set to be rocketed back into the limelight – which still isn’t as bright as his teeth – with this FUT Birthday card!

This is a centre forward card that trades out blistering pace for a much more well-rounded approach. This makes Bobby’s 90 rated card capable of everything from hold-up play with his decent physical stats, to quick build up with his passing and dribbling and of course finishing chances – which if you link him up with Headliners Salah, will surely come in abundance.

Theo Hernández

Over to Serie A now, and this mouthwatering Hernandez card! This is a great looking FUT Birthday card, that would quite honestly be comfortable in an attacking-midfield role!

97 Pace, 83 passing and 86 dribbling means Hernández will have little problem bombing forward to join your attacks. Add to the mix his incredible 89 physical and 84 defending and you have a colossal defender – just imagine him with 5 star weak foot! 

The rest of the team

our full FUT Birthday team 2 prediction

Manuel Neuer – a GOAT of the game, a FUT Birthday player card would see him remain as one of the best options in the game.

Memphis Depay – Another incredibly well-rounded card, with even better pace than Firmino!

Rafa – if you missed out on Foundations Rafa, you’ll definitely want to get your hands on this card.

Wass – probably not the most exciting player in the list, but still makes for an incredible defender.

Silas – because we were promised him in Team 1, so where is he?!

Ramsey – well we have to give the Scottish and Welsh something to be excited over don’t we…
