EA Sports added a 90-rated FUT Birthday version of Mesut Özil from Fenerbahçe to FIFA 21 today. This item will be available through the squad-building challenge (SBC) menu in FIFA 21 Ultimate Team.

Özil is a part of the first set of FUT Birthday cards. The FUT Birthday promo was launched last week and will feature players with a five-star upgrade to either their skill moves or their weak foot rating.

This is Özil’s third special card in FIFA 21 Ultimate Team. EA Sports greatly upgraded all of his stats, including Pace (+23), Physical (+19), Shooting (+18), Defending (+18), Dribbling (+10), and his Passing (+5), when compared to his 82-rated gold version. His weak foot was upgraded to five stars while his skill moves remained at four stars.

FUT Birthday Özil costs around 147,600 FUT coins on PlayStation 4, 142,800 on Xbox One, and 160,750 on PC. His price is surprisingly low for his high stats and when you compare it to other FUT Birthday SBCs. If you apply the hunter chemistry style, you’ll boost his Pace (+10) and Shooting (+6), basically transforming him into a 96-rated CAM player.

If you want to complete the FUT Birthday Özil SBC, you’ll need to build two squads: Real Madrid and National Duty. You’ll have until April 4 to complete these squads.

The first solution requires an 83-rated squad with 75 chemistry minimum, one Inform, and at least one player from Real Madrid. The second squad asks for an 84-rated team with 65 chemistry minimum and a player from Germany.
