@FUTSheriff and @Trustyfuttrader give us an early look at the TOTY Honourable Mentions, including 90 Rudiger, 90 Martínez and a 91 TOTY Kjaer SBC.

Whether you love it or hate it, you can’t deny the excitement that is generated as soon as the FIFA 22 leak whispers begin. The FIFA 22 TOTY Honourable Mentions promotion is no different, and we already know all of the names that are going to be appearing in packs!

Who is the TOTY 12th Man?

The one and only Cristiano Ronaldo! The stats have been confirmed by @FUTSheriff and @MitchTrading, so we’ll be seeing a 97 overall rating for Manchester United’s Ronaldo. CR7 managed 47 goals and 7 assists in the 2021 calendar year – this meant he averaged a goal every 116 minutes in his 65 appearances, outperforming his main rival Messi!

Who is in the Honourable Mentions team?

Here’s the full list of TOTY Honourable Mentions for those without Twitter access:

  • Salah
  • Haaland
  • Bruno Fernandes
  • Benzema
  • Rudiger
  • Goretzka
  • Insigne
  • Mendy
  • Chiesa
  • Alaba
  • Foden
  • Kounde
  • Walker
  • Bonucci
  • David

Antonio Rüdiger

There were 2 Chelsea men who made the official Team of the Year, and now Rüdiger joins them in the honourable mentions. It’s understandable given that he helped the blue side of London to their first Champions League trophy in 9 years. With blistering pace and overwhelming physical and defensive stats, it’s going to be a task for your opponent to break you down!

Lautaro Martínez

The first official leaked name is Lautaro Martínez and he’ll be appearing as an SBC! The Argentinian forward had a solid year, but it wasn’t anything to write home about; the likelihood is EA are making up for the fact that Serie A hasn’t featured in TOTY, and since Martínez has a great base card in FIFA 22, he’s the ideal candidate to upgrade.

Simon Kjaer

The second leak is a TOTY Kjaer SBC, courtesy of @trustyfuttrader. Another Serie A player to help bolster the numbers, except this time the Denmark captain had a really impressive Euros run and a solid season for AC Milan. He was also named male footballer of the year for Denmark for the second time in his career!

Mohammed Salah:

This one was always going to make the HM squad. There’s no denying the incredible run of form that Mo Salah has been on, he’s cemented himself as part of the conversation when it comes to debating who is the best in the world. Salah was probably unlucky to miss out on a TOTY card this season and it’s only his team’s lack of silverware in 2021 that kept him off the list.

Karim Benzema:

Since Ronaldo left Real Madrid, this man’s career seems to have gone from strength to strength and 2021 was arguably the best individual year of his playing career. Even with 43 goals and 14 assists, the French sharpshooter still didn’t manage to bag a spot in the TOTY squad, but his place in the Honourable Mentions team was always guaranteed.

Save your packs

You might be tempted to rattle through all of your saved packs in the hope of packing an elusive Team of the Year player, however, you can see for yourself the caliber of player that is about to be released tomorrow – our advice: SAVE YOUR PACKS!

When will the FIFA 22 TOTY Honourable Mentions be released? 

The full Team of the Year squad will be released into packs today and, if the usual schedule is followed, that means the 12th Man card will be released tomorrow alongside the FIFTEEN HM cards!

How long are TOTY players in packs?

TOTY, 12th Man and Honourable Mentions cards will remain in FIFA 22 Ultimate Team packs until Friday the 4th of February. That means they’ll still be in packs when Division Rivals milestone rewards are released – bonus!

Bonus Tip

It’s a great idea to do PL upgrade packs, with 6 TOTY including the CR7 12th man and 6 honourable mentions, your chances of packing an end-game card are much higher!
