FIFA 17 Ultimate Team: Lahm & Xabi Alonso lead second batch of FUTTIES

The pair hung up their boots after the 2016-17 season with Bayern and have been awarded huge stats boots as a parting gift from EA sports

FIFA 17 released their second batch of FUTTIES cards on Friday, with End of an Era cards for Philipp Lahm and Xabi Alonso the big headline items.

Lahm's original Ultimate Team card boasted an already impressive rating of 88, though poor physical stats and poor acceleration and top speed had players thinking twice about using the German icon as their first-choice right-back.

His 95-rated EOAE card, however, sees both areas given big boosts, while his shooting has been upped to a respectable 74 from an original score of 56.

Alonso's original card had similar issues, with drastically poor pace and stamina meaning the Spain legend could only be used sparingly.

No longer, though, as the former Liverpool man's new 94-rated card now looks a must-have for any FUT Bundesliga fanatics.

Also included in the update is the next set of nominees, with the right-wing/midfield position now in focus.

Pace is paramount on the wings, and gamers have been given the chance to pick their favourite from a choice of Manchester City's Leroy Sane, Bayer Leverkusen's Karim Bellarabi and Paris Saint-Germain's Lucas.

In addition to the FUTTIES update, United States' Jordan Morris, Mexico's Elias Hernandez, Jamaica's Andre Blake and Costa Rica's Marcos Urena have been awarded Man of the Match cards for their international exploits at the Gold Cup.
