EA Sports has added a new squad-building challenge (SBC) to FIFA 21 Ultimate Team’s menu today. It’s an End of an Era 93-rated version of Wayne Rooney, a striker who used to play for Derby County.

The 39-year-old retired on Jan. 15 to become the club’s manager. EA released this card to celebrate his legacy with a Premium SBC version.

Rooney played most of his career on Manchester United and holds the title of record goalscorer for both United, where he scored 253 goals between 2004 and 2017, and the England national team with 53 goals.

EA has incredibly increased all of Rooney’s skills, including Pace (+34), Dribbling (+15), Defending (+15), Physical (+15), and Shooting (+14) when you compare this new card to his 77-rated gold version.

This massive upgrade transforms End of an Era Rooney into a spectacular card to use in FIFA 21 Ultimate Team because of his Acceleration, Agility, and Balance stats, which are all rated above 80. If you apply the engine chemistry style, most of his skills will be above 90.

This SBC costs around 373,750 FUT coins on PS4 and is a bit more expensive on Xbox One (378,900) and PC (433,900). But this is a fair price for such a good card with skills that go through the roof.

If you want to complete this SBC, you’ll have to turn in three squads: Rising Star, Legend in the Making, and Three Lion Kings. The first team asks for an 84-rated squad with 80 chemistry minimum and at least one player from the Premier League. The second solution requires an 84-rated squad with 80 chemistry minimum, at least one Inform, and one player from Manchester United. The third one must be an 86-rated squad with 65 chemistry minimum and at least one player from England.
