With Team of the Year ending on Monday, EA Sports have found a way to feed your pack addiction, like we knew they all would. Late Monday night/Tuesday morning, they released the first set of international Man of the Match cards for the African Cup of Nations.
Leicester City and Algeria’s Riyad Mahrez is the big attraction for this release. He gets an 87 rated orange card, a 2 rating increase from his base gold card. With 91 dribbling, 86 shooting, and 86 passing, it’s hard to imagine this card not being a monster in-game.
The other honoree to receive the limited edition special card is Senegalese goalkeeper Abdoulaye Diallo. He plays for Rizespor in the Turkish Super Lig and is a silver card.
These players are in packs for only the next 24 hours. With the African Cup of Nations ongoing, you can expect to see a lot more of these types of releases over the next few weeks and even possibly a team of the tournament once it concludes.
Who’s ready to try and pack an orange card?
