Captain America set for new Man of the Match card in FUT 21

EA has continued to release Man of the Match cards in FIFA 21 Ultimate Team, with N'Golo Kante leading the latest set of cards.

The Frenchman's performance in the Champions League final was incredible and a key feature in Chelsea's success in nullifying the usually potent Manchester City attack.

We are sure to see more MOTM cards soon, and Christian Pulisic could be top of the list of potential new stars.

Man of the Match

Man of the Match cards are selected from domestic cup competitions, or from the European knockout stages.

Each player released will have starred for their club side when it mattered most, hence Kante's new card from the Champions League final.

The MOTM card is Kante's second in the Champions League as he saved his best form for the latter stages.

Villareal's Geronimo Rulli also features after his heroics in the Europa League final having kept Manchester United at bay for large portions of the game.

After the game went to penalties, Rulli confidently converted his in sudden death before saving from his opposite number David De Gea.

The best of the rest is former Chelsea winger Lucas Piazon who has been awarded an 84 OVR for his goal in the Portuguese cup final for Braga.

National Glory

As the majority of domestic seasons have now drawn to a close, will we see EA release international MOTM cards?

There is plenty of international football coming up with EURO 2020 and Copa America both set to take place this summer.

The North American contingent will also be in action, while World Cup qualifying is also taking place across the world.

With so much to choose from, we hope to see some form of special cards to recognise the best performers each week since Team of the Week is finished.

Captain America

If EA does release performance-related special cards from international competitions, then Christian Pulisic could be the first in line.

USA's CONCACAF Nations League final with Mexico went to extra-time after the teams could not be separated in 90 minutes.

With just five minutes to go and a penalty shoot-out looming, Captain America popped up with a 115th-minute winner to clinch victory for his side.

IN THE STARS - Pulisic's late goal was like something from a Hollywood blockbuster

Success in the Nations League will give USA confidence heading into the Gold Cup this summer where they will look to get the better of Mexico once more.

Pulisic's winner could also see him rewarded with a MOTM card (we hope).

This would be his second performance-based special card of the season and would likely be rated 86 OVR.
