Flashback Kante is the latest big card to be released in FIFA 22 Ultimate Team, here’s how to complete the FUT SBC.

FIFA 22 Flashback Kante

The latest big SBC in FIFA 22 Ultimate Team is Flashback N’Golo Kante of Chelsea, offering FUT fans another option to shore up their midfield. Here’s how to meet his SBC requirements, and whether or not the card is worth grinding for.

Ultimate Team loves to surprise players with new special cards throughout the year, and FIFA 22 is no different.

With Road to the Knockouts only just behind us and Rulebreakers set to dominate the next few weeks, EA have dropped a Flashback Kante into the mix.

How can you get hold of him? And is he worth working towards? We’ve got the lowdown below.

What are FIFA 22 Flashback cards?

Much as the name suggests, Flashbacks are a throwback to a player’s previous cards in past FIFA games.

Sometimes this may be a carbon copy of an old Team of the Season or a card with stats inspired by a past season.

In the case of N’Golo Kante, his Flashback is an ode to his success in Leicester’s title-winning season in 2015/16.

What’s interesting is that the stats on this card are technically a downgrade on his usual 90-rated cards, but it has been released as a cheaper option.

FIFA 22 Flashback Kante SBC requirements

Chelsea players in FIFA 22

Players have until 10 AM PDT / 1 PM EDT / 6 PM GMT on Friday, November 5, 2021, to complete the seven SBCs required for Flashback Kante.

At the time of writing, according to FUTBIN, the full group of SBCs is clocking in at between 290,000 and 305,000 depending on which platform you play on.

This is only if you have to buy every single player and don’t have fodder collecting dust in your club.

Is FIFA 22 Flashback Kante worth it?

FIFA 22 Flashback Kante stats

As we mentioned earlier, this is an odd Flashback card because its overall rating is three ratings lower than Kante’s usual 90 rating.

We saw this in FIFA 21 with the Flashback Ronaldo – the idea seems to be that these are toned-down versions of cards that would normally break the bank.

When comparing the two Kante’s side-by-side, there is a big difference between their defensive stats, but the drop elsewhere isn’t as large as you might expect.

FIFA 22 Kante stats comparison

The main issue with this card is that, particularly on Xbox, the difference in price between the Flashback SBC and buying normal Kante from the Transfer Market isn’t big enough.

As of October 29, for an extra 30,000 coins, Xbox players could splash on the better version of Kante and have him as a tradeable card. The gap on Playstation is more like 110,000, but the 90-rated card will likely drop in price as time goes on.

For these reasons, we only recommend completing this SBC if you have plenty of high-rated fodder already in your club and you don’t want to splash the cash on his normal card.


That was everything you need to know about how to complete the Flashback Kante SBC in FIFA 22. EA like to surprise-drop cards like this through the season, so stay tuned to Charlie INTEL for guides like this.

FIFA 23 Serie A ratings: Every team’s best players predictions

The Serie A will bring some of the world’s best players to FIFA 23, so we’ve predicted who will have the highest rating for each club.

FIFA 23 Serie A player rating predictions

New arrivals have made the Serie A an exciting league to keep an eye on in FIFA 23’s Ultimate Team. From Juventus to both divides of Milan, here are our predictions for the top Serie A ratings in FIFA 23, as well as every team’s best players.

With each iteration of FIFA, EA updates player ratings based on their performances in the previous season, and FIFA 23 will be no exception. Seria A fans received a title race for the ages during the 2021/2022 season as both Milan sides looked to conquer Italy.

When it comes to Serie A player ratings in Ultimate Team, you can expect the top performers to receive major rating boosts. However, don’t forget that new transfers are making their way to Italy over the summer and some major stars cannot be overlooked.

Who will be the best players in the Serie A? We’ve put together our predictions for the top 10 highest-rated Serie A players in FIFA 23, and highlighted the best players from each club.

Kalidou KoulibalyNapoli86
Lautaro MartinezInter Milan+186
Paul PogbaJuventus-186
Sergej Milinkovic-SavicLazio+186
Mike MaignanA.C Milan+286

There are some incredible storylines that should make for some great Serie A Ultimate Team squads in FIFA 22. Superstars Paul Pogba and Romelu Lukaku are returning to their former clubs after time in the Premier League.

Given how both of these players failed to meet expectations, their ratings are expected to drop in FIFA 23. While new faces will make their way to Serie A, some top players will be departing including Chiellini, Insigne, Kessie, and possibly more.

Fortunately, top performers from the previous season are ready to step in to fill the void in Ultimate Team. Mike Maignan won the goalkeeper of the year award last season so there’s no denying that he’s deserving of a rating increase.

Milan Skriniar was a brick wall for Inter Milan last season and will surely receive a rating increase whether he stays with Inter Milan or moves on to PSG as rumors suggest. Koulibaly is another that could depart Serie A, but if he stays at Napoli he’ll continue to be one of the best defenders in the league.

The top 10 player ratings list is dominated by Italy’s elite, but the Serie A has some hidden gems across clubs outside of the top six. EA will dish out some interesting upgrades and downgrades across the league. FIFA 23 will take into account the top performers of last season as well as the duds that failed to meet expectations.

Volland SBC stats FIFA 22

Volland has transformed from a lethal striker into a brick wall of a defender during the Shapeshifters promo. His Defending stats including Standing Tackle and Interceptions are all within the 90s.

Pace is not an issue for Volland as he maintains his speed as an attacker now playing in a defensive role. Volland will no doubt feel like an incredibly smooth CB on the ball thanks to his impressive Dribbling stats that include 85 Ball Control, 95 Composure, and 89 Balance.

FIFA 23 Premier League ratings: Every team’s best players predictions

The Premier League is set to host some of the best players in FIFA 23, so we’ve predicted who will have the highest rating for each club.

FIFA 23 Premier League ratings

The Premier League will be home to some of FIFA 23’s brightest stars, with players from the likes of Manchester City and Liverpool set to dominate Ultimate Team. Here are our predictions for the top Premier League ratings in FIFA 23, as well as every team’s best players.

Each and every year, EA updates its roster of players with new ratings based on how they performed in the previous season, and FIFA 23 is no exception. The 2021/22 campaign saw some exceptional performances, which will no doubt be reflected in the FIFA 23 ratings.

One of the biggest leagues to feature in FIFA 23 is the Premier League. Whether you’re building your dream Ultimate Team or embarking on a Career Mode, the English top-flight is likely to play a part.

But who will be the best players in the Premier League? We’ve put together our predictions for the top 10 highest-rated Premier League players in FIFA 23, and highlighted the best players from each club.

Harry KaneSpurs90
Alison BeckerLiverpool+190
EdersonManchester City+190
Erling HaalandManchester City+290
Virgil Van DijkLiverpool89
Trent Alexander-ArnoldLiverpool+288

After they two fought tooth and nail for all three domestic trophies last season, we’re expecting Manchester City and Liverpool to dominate the ratings in FIFA 23.

After winning Premier League Player of the Season, Kevin De Bruyne will likely keep his lofty 91 rating, sharing the top spot with Cristiano Ronaldo, who also enjoyed a great individual season in a struggling United team.

We’ve listed Erling Haaland as one of the highest climbers, who should receive a large bump after his high-profile move to City. Trent Alexander-Arnold is also expected to be rewarded after his best season to date, managing 12 assists from right back.

Heung Min-Son also registered his most prolific year in the Premier League so far, finishing as the joint-top goalscorer. This should be enough to see him move up a rating and join the coveted 90 club.
