FUT 17 Brazilian Squad Builder: The poor man’s edition

Hear me out, Brazilian squads are good.

Are you an average FIFA Ultimate Team player looking for a fun squad to play with? Are you looking to spend only a maximum of 15,000 coins?

Well look no further.

Having played countless FUT matches with many squads in FIFA 17, I have yet to find a squad more enjoyable than this all-Brazilian lineup:

Representing a plethora of European leagues, this Gold squad has a casual rating of 78 overall – or four stars. In addition to its average rating, the squad boasts 100 chemistry. Thanks to the random Bronze manager I threw into the lineup, each player sits with a full 10 chemistry.

The squad possesses a certain uniqueness to it. Full of pace and aggressiveness, the Brazilians have a knack at always being at the right place at the right time.

Seeming to always back pass to one another, skills are abundant with this squad.

Certain players stand out in the squad; others do not. However, the players who do not stand out quietly perform their task consistently.

The orange link between striker Adriano and midfielder Fred is one of the best finds in my FUT career. The two small Brazilian speedsters play off each other like peanut butter and jelly. Playing one-twos, making correct runs, and dribbling flawlessly, the two like-minded attackers create an under-the-radar steal for those looking to spend little coinage.

Although I attempted to keep the squad cheap, I decided to splurge a little by buying Paris Saint-Germain right winger Lucas – and boy am I happy I did that. The Brazilian winger can blow past any defense with his immense strength and pace. Even though he has yet to score for me in eight appearances with the squad, Lucas has assisted ten goals.

Another under-the-radar steal in the team is Sporting Lisbon’s Bruno Cesar. Cesar is not the quickest midfielder but what he lacks in pace, he makes up for in dribbling. The Brazilian left winger has the uncanny ability to plow through defenses. Furthermore, Cesar has solid potential as a defender, tackling opponents left and right. Personally, I highly recommend gamers to try out this non-rare gem.

The defense is strangely satisfying. Containing no one famous or world renowned player, the backline still gets the job done. Having enough pace to keep up with pacy wingers and enough strength to deal with overpowered strikers, the four misplaced defenders flow together smoothly thanks their shared nationality.

Overall, the squad is terrific to play with. Since making the team early this week, I have won eight, drawn two, and lost zero. Although this squads entertainment may dwindle in the future, I am thoroughly enjoying my current time with them. Furthermore, with FUT’s database loaded with amazing Brazilian footballers, there are always different ways to improve this team to your liking.
