Marta, Alex Morgan and Megan Rapinoe are probably the best-known names from the NWSL who receive their first gold cards in EA SPORTS FC 24. But at first glance, the best properties go to others.
Sophia Smith, Mallory Swanson and Debinha are supposed to be better than a six-time World Player and a Ballon d’Or winner? In EA SPORTS FC 24’s Ultimate Team, it appears so. At least at first glance at the gold cards from the US National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL). Marta, Alex Morgan and Megan Rapinoe are the big names, but other base properties beckon.
Among them, Morgan – twice runner-up in the World Player of the Year polls – holds the card with the highest overall rating. The 34-year-old’s total score is 89 points. The basic scores are also decent, but the 83 cannot keep up with the league-leading competition. The speed of the starter items of two other strikers is more than ten points higher.
High speed for Smith and Swanson, magic foot Debinha
Smith and Swanson trump virtually by 93 speed. The former can also shine on her gold card with dribbling (88), shooting (85) and physicality (82). Swanson’s object also shows strong dribbling (84) and good shooting (82), in addition, the passing value (82) can be seen. This is also one of Brazilian Debinha’s trump cards, her gold card tackling the combination game with 87 points.
The main focus, however, is on dribbling, which comes in at 91 points. The tempo (84) drops significantly compared to Smith and Swanson – but is not so decisive for a playmaker (ZOM). It’s a different story for Marta (ST) and Megan Rapinoe (LM), whose basic objects’ 72 and 73 speed scores respectively might cost them some popularity in Ultimate Team.
The gold cards of Smith and Swanson are surpassed in terms of speed by Trinity Rodman, whose item even has 94 points for the attribute. The Washington Spirit right-winger also has 83 for physicality and 83 for dribbling. It can be assumed that some of these items will find their place in the starting teams.
