FIFA 20 Ultimate Team: Best English side – Kane, Sterling, Rashford & more

There is some great young English talent, who makes it into the best English side in FUT this year?

Whilst there is some quality English talent making a name for themselves abroad, like Jadon Sancho, most English talent stick to their home nation and the Premier League.

The Three Lions brought the passion back to English international football last summer when they made the semi-finals of the 2018 World Cup and for a little while, it looked like it actually was coming home.

For the best England side on FUT we have selected a 4-1-2-1-2 formation in order to accommodate the attacking talent that the nation has to offer. Here is our ultimate England team from those available in FIFA 20.

GK – Jordan Pickford (OVR 83)

Age: 25

Position: GK

Club: Everton

Country: England

Price: 1.9k PS4 / 2.8k Xbox One

In goal for the England side is England’s current number one, Everton’s Jordan Pickford.

The 25-year-old has come under fire in recent weeks for his performances for his club, and whilst his long-term England future may be in doubt, at 83 overall, he is the best option for the English side on FIFA 20.

Alternative option: Nick Pope (OVR 79)

RB – Kyle Walker (OVR 84)

Age: 29

Position: RB

Club: Manchester City

Country: England

Price: 71.5k PS4 / 65.5k Xbox One

The right back slot belongs to none other than Manchester City’s Kyle Walker.

The dream right back on FIFA for many a year, the now 31-year-old may be starting to reach the peak years of his career, but he hasn’t lost his trademark lightning pace just yet, which sits at a cool 91 on this years game. 81 defending and 81 physical show he’s still got it defensively too. As good a RB as you’ll get anywhere on FIFA 20.

Alternative option: Trent Alexander Arnold (OVR 83)

CB – John Stones (OVR 83)

Age: 25

Position: CB

Club: Manchester City

Country: England

Price: 7.5k PS4 / 7.4k Xbox One

Alongside Kyle Walker in the England back four is his Manchester City teammate and fellow Yorkshireman John Stones.

Injuries have hampered the progress of the 25-year-old over the past couple of seasons, however his card on FIFA is still the best that England has to offer. His pace may have taken a hit since FIFA 19, however it is still a respectable 68. 84 defending makes him a solid choice for this side.

Alternative option: Conor Coady (OVR 77)

CB – Joe Gomez (OVR 80)

Age: 22

Position: CB

Club: Liverpool

Country: England

Price: 1.2k PS4 / 1.8k Xbox One

Playing alongside John Stones in the English centre back pairing is Liverpool youngster Joe Gomez.

At just 80 overall, there are higher rated options available to fill the second position on the side, however in terms of what you want from a CB on FIFA, Joe Gomez fits the bill. 81 pace, 68 dribbling and 64 passing make him a solid ball playing centre half, and the perfect partner to John Stones.

Alternative option: Harry Maguire (OVR 82) 

LB – Luke Shaw (OVR 81)

Age: 24

Position: LB

Club: Manchester United

Country: England 

Price: 2.5k PS4 / 2.8k Xbox One

The final spot in the English back four belongs to Manchester United’s Luke Shaw.

The 24-year-old has seen his career plummet since his move to Old Trafford back in the summer of 2014, losing his first-choice spot for both club and country in recent months. However, on FIFA, he is the best choice for an English left-back and he won’t set you back too much of your budget either. 

Alternative option: Danny Rose (OVR 80)
