The only reasonable way to celebrate the anniversary of the game mode is to release massively boosted cards, with upgraded skill moves and weak foot abilities.
Although there are already some brilliant looking leaked cards coming in Team 2, one that has really caught the attention of the FUT community is a returning favourite.
Despite not having a FUT card upon FIFA 22's release, Dani Alves is set to gain an insane-looking FUT Birthday special.
After his return to Barcelona, fans were eagerly awaiting some kind of special card to be handed to Alves, and it has now come.
FUT Camp announced that Dani Alves will be released in Team 2 of the FUT Birthday promo - his first card in FUT 22 - also showing off his 'official' stats.
With 90+ in pace, passing and dribbling he will certainly be a very attacking option at right-back, with five-star skill moves and weak foot the cherries on top!
If you're a skill move merchant, then Alves looks like the right-back for you.
As mentioned, he has maximum skill moves and weak foot ability and coupled with his 93 DRI he should be able to tear it up getting forward and embarrass the opposition.
Alves doesn't currently have a card in FUT but has been added to FIFA 22 offline modes, where he has a 77 OVR rating, so EA has handed him a massive rating in comparison.
When we look at the best RBs/RWBs currently in FUT22, ratings-wise it is joint between Icon Moments Carlos Alberto and Cafu, both on 94 OVR.
However, the Team of the Year Achraf Hakimi is definitely the best around, despite a slightly lower rating of 93 OVR.
When you compare Hakimi and Alves they are very similar, Hakimi has better pace, defending and physicality, Alves better shooting, passing and dribbling.
Hakimi still looks like he has the edge over Alves, especially given his 99 PAC stats, but we think Alves still comes in at the second-best right-back in the game.
He is set to receive a promo card that is better than Icon Moments in the same position and is nearly TOTY level, that's pretty damn good!
