Next up we have Bournemouth holding midfielder, Jefferson Lerma.

The Colombian is a well-rounded card to have at the foot of your midfield. His defensive capabilities outshine his attacking threat, but he'll pitch in with a goal or two.

The cream of the crop as far as the Championship Objectives players go is Norwich winger, Emiliano Buendia.

Objective Tips

You'll have to play a minimum of 18 matches in order to unlock these three players.

Here are our tips to complete them as quickly as possible.

The main objective that will cause you difficulties is 'Assistance Required' as this requires you to score from crosses, which aren't great in the FIFA 21 meta.

We'd recommend using a formation with wingers in order to maximise your chances in this department, 433(4) would be our recommendation.

Using your bench is key too. Whilst you have to have 11 EFL Championship players in your starting XI, you can use whoever you want on your bench. You'll have three subs, use them wisely.

Finally, just remain patient, and try and see if your opponent is willing to help you boost. If they are, take full advantage.
