EA Sports released a 90-rated FUT Birthday version of Tanguy Ndombélé from Lyon on Sunday, March 6. You can get this card by building a series of squads for the FUT Birthday squad-building challenge (SBC) in FIFA 22 Ultimate Team.

The FUT Birthday promotion celebrates FIFA Ultimate Team’s anniversary and features themed player items with a five-star update to either their skill moves or weak foot. In Ndombélé’s case, EA increased his weak foot from three to five stars compared to his 82-rated gold version.

The devs also gave a general increase to Ndombélé’s Pace (+9), Shooting (+9), Passing (+9), Physical (+9), Defending (+9), and Dribbling (+8). He has balanced and high skills all rated between 80 and 96, with his 96-rated Dribbling being the highest and his 80-rated Pace the lowest.

You can apply the shadow chemistry style to further boost his Pace (+10) and Defending (+9), which will make FUT Birthday Ndombélé an unstoppable center-attacking midfielder. All of his metagaming skills will be among his highest-rated ones.

Ndombélé is a French player from the Ligue 1, so he can make strong links to a lot of great players from France and from its elite soccer division. You can link him to the Prime or Prime Icon Moments versions Zinedine Zidane or Patrick Vieira, any version of Kylian Mbappé from Paris Saint-Germain, Team of the Season (TOTS) Lionel Messi from Paris Saint-Germain, and TOTS N’golo Kanté from Chelsea.

If you’re interested in getting this new FUT Birthday card, you’ll have to build four different squads: Ligue 1, Top Form, France, and 86-rated Squad. Here are the different conditions and rewards for each segment:

Ligue 183-rated squad with 75 chemistry minimum, at least one TOTW (Inform) card, and one player from Ligue 1.Mixed players pack

France85-rated squad with 60 chemistry minimum, no less than a TOTW (Inform) card, and one French player.Rare mixed players pack
86-rated Squad86-rated squad with 55 chemistry minimum.Premium gold players pack

You’ll spend around 325,550 FUT coins on PlayStation, 340,050 on Xbox consoles, and 346,900 FUT coins on PC if you build all those squads from scratch. If you don’t have all the coins to complete everything, there’s plenty of time for you to craft the cards you need. You have one week, until March 13, to turn in all four squads and get FUT Birthday Ndombélé.
