There are two SBCs for this special Showdown challenge, FIFA players will need to complete three different lineups, one each for En-Nesyri and Fofana. 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 Fofana card can be obtained by completing just Fofana’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 France defeats Morocco, Fofana would get a +2 boost, and vice versa for En-Nesyri should the Moroccans 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:

Youssef En-Nesyri

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