On December 12, EA Sports and the FIFA 23 team released two new Showdown Squad Building Challenges, that feature Croatia’s Mario Pasalic and Argentina’s Enzo Fernandez as the marquee rewards. How can you add both to your collection? Let’s take a look.

How to complete Pasalic & Fernandez SBCs

There are two SBCs for this special Showdown challenge, FIFA players will need to complete three different lineups, one for Pasalic and two for Fernandez. Each has its own unique set of requirements. However, the reward for each set of lineups is the card that corresponds with a player. For example, the Pasalic card can be obtained by completing just Pasalic’s SBC. If you want both cards, you’ll need to complete both.

It’s also worth keeping in mind that these players can upgrade. If Argentina defeats Croatia, Fernandez would get a +2 boost, and vice versa for Pasalic should the Croatians advance. Because this game cannot end in a tie, only one player can get a boost from this game.

The requirements for this FIFA 23 SBC are as follows:

Mario Pasalic

  • Starting players – 11
  • TOTW players – Min. 1
  • Team Overall Rating – Min. 84

84-Rated Squad

  • Starting players – 11
  • 86+ OVR players – Min. 1

There are no Chemistry requirements for either SBC.
