On November 7, EA Sports and the FIFA 22 team dropped a brand new Flashback Squad Building Challenge (SBC) into the game. Manchester City’s Riyad Mahrez is the latest player to take players back in time. This time, we’re flashing back to his 2017-18 campaign with Leicester City. That means a solid pace boost for Mahrez, along with improved shooting. Want to slap him into your Premier League side? Here’s how to make it happen.

Solutions

Mahrez is currently coming in at right around 150,000 coins. That’s pretty steep, but he is relatively similar to Team of the Week Gabriel Jesus, who is 140,000 coins on the market. That makes it tough to call him overpriced, especially if you’re a City fan. Here are some solutions to help you finish this SBC.
