A new FIFA 21 Flashback Squad Building Challenge is live as of February 16, and the prize for this one is Roma FC winger Stephan El Shaarawy. To commemorate his big 2012-13 season in Serie A, an 88 OVR player item became obtainable on the 16th via a SBC. So, what are the requirements for this Squad Building Challenge? Let’s go over those, plus some solutions for each lineup.

How to complete Stephan El Shaarawy SBC

To complete this Squad Building Challenge, FIFA users will need to complete three starting lineups of 11 players. Each lineup has its own unique set of requirements.

The requirements for each are as follows:

Rising Star

  • Starting players – 11
  • AC Milan players – Min. 1
  • Team Overall Rating – Min. 80
  • Team Chemistry – Min. 75
  • Reward – Prime Mixed Players Pack

Il Faraone

  • Starting players – 11
  • Italy players – Min. 1
  • Team Overall Rating – Min. 84
  • Team Chemistry – Min. 70
  • Reward – Prime Electrum Players Pack

League Finesse

  • Starting players – 11
  • Serie A players – Min. 1
  • Team Overall Rating – Min. 85
  • Team Chemistry – Min. 65
  • Reward – Prime Mixed Players Pack


Thankfully, no Team of the Week cards are required for this challenge. However, because there are three lineups, it’s going to be a bit expensive to complete. This SBC could cost you in upwards of 250,000 Coins, but it might be worth it if you’re in need of a speedy winger who has an Italian and Serie A link.
