EA added a 96-rated Showdown version of Paul Pogba from Piemonte Calcio today in FIFA 22 Ultimate Team. This card is available by completing a themed squad-building challenge (SBC) in-game.
Showdown SBCs offer two players who will face each other in real life. Pogba will go up against Roma’s Georginio Wijnaldum, who also received a Showdown version, on Aug. 27. The player from the winning club will get a +2 overall in-game upgrade on top of this boosted version.
The devs mainly increased Pogba’s original 87-rated gold version, such as his Defending (+26), Pace (+22), Dribbling (+11), Shooting (+10), Physical (+10), and Passing (+9) for this Showdown version.
If you use this card on your team, you can apply the engine chemistry style to further increase his Pace (+4), Passing (+3), and Dribbling (+1). This will maximize his Sprint Speed, Vision, Short Passing, and Curve.
The upgrade will also leave his skill ratings ranging from 91 and 98, which is extremely high and can get higher with the +2 upgrade if he wins the match.
There are a lot of great players from various nations, clubs, and special versions that can make a strong link with Showdown Pogba, such as Zinedine Zidane, Iván Córdoba, Antonio Di Natale, Franck Ribéry from Salernitana, Dušan Vlahovic from Piemonte Calcio, and Paulo Dybala from Piemonte Calcio.
How to complete Showdown Pogba SBC in FIFA 22 Ultimate Team
You’ll have to turn in four squads to complete this SBC: Piemonte Calcio, France, Serie A TIM, and Top Form. Here’s the list of their conditions and the respective rewards you will receive aside from the untradeable Showdown Pogba card.
|Piemonte Calcio||86-rated squad with 60 chemistry minimum and one player from Piemonte Calcio.||Premium mixed players pack|
|France||87-rated squad with 55 chemistry minimum and no less than one French player.||Prime mixed players pack|
|Serie A TIM||88-rated squad with 40 chemistry minimum plus at least one player from Serie A TIM.||Premium gold players pack|
|Top Form||88-rated squad with 50 chemistry minimum and no less than one TOTS or TOTW (Inform) card.||Mega pack|
If you build all four squads from scratch, you’ll spend around 342,000 FUT coins on PlayStation, 322,750 on Xbox, and 313,450 FUT coins on PC and Stadia in total. You’ll have until Aug. 27, when the real-life game ends, to complete every segment and even craft some cards to spend fewer FUT coins.
