As we prepare for Shapeshifters Team 2, what can possibly be left to bring in FUT? Here's what we're expecting.
Last year in FIFA 19, we had a squad of 14 items released into packs, with players selected from the eight major Carnival countries, these being:
- Brazil (Rio De Janeiro)
- France (Nice)
- Belgium (Binche)
- Italy (Venice)
- Argentina (Buenos Aires)
- USA (New Orleans)
- Spain (Cadiz)
- Germany (Cologne)
Our prediction will again feature 14 players, selected from these 8 nations.
Here are some players from the 8 Carniball nations that I would like to see featured in this year’s Carniball promo.
Paul Pogba - 94 OVR - France
Pogba hasn’t seen an upgrade yet in FUT this year, due to his long term struggle with injury. What better time to give him a big upgrade, than having him represent the French in the FUT Carniball promotion!
Roberto Firmino - 93 OVR - Brazil
Having been snubbed of a Winter upgrade card, many are crying out for a higher rated Firmino card to reflect his class for Liverpool this season. The Brazilian is a perfect fit for the Carniball promo, playing with a flair that encompasses the spirit of the promotion.
Gianluigi Donnarumma - 92 OVR - Italy
A GK will have to feature in the squad released into packs, so what better player than arguably the best young keeper in the world currently.
Cesar Azpilicueta - 91 OVR - Spain
Azpilicueta as a CB card would be a fantastic addition to FUT with his pace, agility and passing. I’d love to see him included in this year's Carniball celebrations.
Kai Havertz - 90 OVR - Germany
The first of the two German inclusions in our Carniball prediction, Havertz is a hotly demanded prospect in both FUT and real-world football. What a card this would be if he were to be included!
Douglas Costa - 90 OVR - Brazil
Our 2nd Brazilian, Costa has been lacking somewhat in FUT upgrades this year, so Carniball could be his break, and being a 5* Skiller, he certainly provides the flair to the squad.
Clément Lenglet - 90 OVR - France
The Barcelona CB started the year being one of the most popular CBs in FUT, so an upgrade in the Carniball team would make a lot of people happy I think. With a link as well to Headliner Varane, you’d have quite the French pairing in defence.
Yannick Carrasco - 89 OVR - Belgium
Our first Belgian in the squad, a high rated Yannick Carrasco card at Atletico would be a very popular item I think. With a slight lack of LW options in La Liga, this card could certainly help fill that gap nicely.
Jerome Boateng - 89 OVR - Germany
Despite not being the commanding CB that he once was, Boateng still has the potential to be a monster in FUT, and a potential big Carniball upgrade could help.
Giovani Lo Celso - 89 OVR - Argentina
Representing Buenos Aires and Argentina, Lo Celso would be a very popular option in any Premier League midfields, boasting solid all-round stats.
Thomas Meunier - 88 OVR - Belgium
A CDM Thomas Meunier card is always something that’s desired in FUT, thanks to his very well rounded stats and large frame in-game. This card would certainly be in demand with Neymar and Mbappe being two of the most popular cards this year.
Andrea Belotti - 88 OVR - Italy
The 2nd Italian in the squad, representing the Venice Carnival, Belotti could be a great addition, with 5* Weak Foot and the potential for very high shooting and physical, he could be a prolific striking option.
DeAndre Yedlin - 86 OVR - United States
Unfortunately, there aren’t a tonne of options to cover in the USA, hence Yedlin’s inclusion. Always a popular choice due to his incredible pace, he should feature yet again in this year's Carniball promotion.
Ansu Fati - 86 OVR - Spain
A very hopeful inclusion this, but a big upgrade to Ansu Fati would be very sought after this year in FUT. With many hoping that he’d receive a Future Stars item, maybe a Carniball card is in the pipeline now that the wonderkid has been added into FUT.
