Who qualifies to be a FUT Headliner?

  1. What’s the best pack to buy to get a shot at these? New to FUT and I bought $60 in packs got only one walk out player 🙁 it was only a 78 rating champions league too….

    1. It’s by chance, spent about 700£ on fifa and only got 1 player rated 91 (icon Bergkamp) keep in mind that 700£ will buy a lot of packs, kinda bulls*** if you ask me…

  2. We need these cards:

    > Hirving Lozano
    > Robert Lewandowski
    > Andrea Belotti
    > Marcus Rashford
    > Ferland Mendy
    > Andy Delort
    > Patrick Bamford
    > Heung-min Son
    > Fernando Pacheco
    > Matheus Cunha
    > Ollie Watkins
    > Erling Braut Haaland
    > Dominic Calvert-Lewin

  3. My predictions for fut headliners:

    – Anthony Lopes
    – Tavernier
    – Mats Hummels
    – Bruno Fernandes
    – Milinkovic-Savic
    – Casemiro
    – Oyarzabal
    – Haland
    – Karim Benzema
    – Cristiano Ronaldo
