To complete this World Cup Path to Glory SBC, FIFA players will need to complete two different lineups. Each has its own unique set of requirements.

The requirements for this FIFA 23 SBC are as follows:


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

Premier League

  • Starting players – 11
  • Premier League players – Min. 1
  • TOTW players – Min. 1
  • Team Overall Rating – Min. 86


This SBC, in total, will cost around 110,000-120,000 Coins. It’s a high price, but Portugal does have a solid shot to do well in the 2022 World Cup. That will boost Palhinha’s stats, ones that already include 4-star Weak Foot, 88 Defending, and 93 Physical.
