Xavi receives a 94-card from Spain's World Cup win in 2010, with Brazil legend Garrincha featuring after winning a second World Cup in 1962.

Worth it?

Compared to similar players, this is a very reasonable price for Xavi.

It's around 200,000 coins more expensive than his 93-rated Icon item, with it crucially increasing his pace by two.

Some recent alternatives that have arrived in the game would be Marcos Acuna's Festival of FUTball item, which has all six FUT stats above 88, and Marcos Veratti - with both players 94-rated.

With these cards being Path to Glory items, they can improve to a 97 rating with five tournament wins this summer - they perhaps offer slightly better value, but you best get in quick before Argentina or France pick up any more victories.

Garrincha (OVR 95)

Worth it?

2 million coins is a lot of cash, and given Garrincha only has 92 pace, the Brazilian isn't worth the cash or effort.

TOTS Mohamed Salah is priced at 490,000 coins, Angel Di Maria at 315,000 and a 93-rated Luis Figo for 400,000 coins.
