collectionfifatips | FIFA 18 Gheorghe Hagi Prime Icon SBC Cheapest Solution

This is the cheapest solution to use your FUT coins in FIFA 18 Ultimate Team to gain the prime icon Gheorghe Hagi in the squad building challenge. Easily the most decorated Romanian footballer of all time, Hagi is a very lucrative player to acquire into any team. Check out the full HD video guide below that showcases the cheapest way to get the card.

Now there are a few SBC’s to get through and they are the following:

  • Real Madrid
  • Brescia & FC Barcelona
  • Galatasaray
  • 84 rated team
  • 85 rated team
  • 86 rated team
  • 87 rated team

It goes without saying that the 87 rated is by far the most expensive and will cost close to 235K to complete. The rest are relatively easy and it is best to do these over time especially when there are market crashes in FUT. This is when you should snipe the most expensive players at the best times.

In total it should cost you around 650,000 coins which is by far the cheapest you’re going to find. Look out for more icon SBCs and general FIFA 18 gameplay tips by subscribing to the official YouTube channel to stay right up to date on all video publications.

FIFA 18 Roberto Carlos Prime Icon SBC Cheapest Solution –

This is the cheapest possible solution for the Roberto Carlos Prime Icon SBC on FIFA 18 Ultimate Team. This will cost you roughly 900K coins in FUT but that is by far the cheapest you are going to get this card for. Take a look at the full video below that details how to get it by completing all the squad building challenges.

There are a total of 8 SBCs to complete and each one will reward you with a pack, below shows all that need to be completed in order for you to obtain this very special LB card.

  • Real Madrid
  • Fenerbahce
  • 83 rated squad
  • 84 rated squad
  • 85 rated squad
  • 86 rated squad
  • 87 rated squad

It goes without saying that the two hardest ones in terms of using up most of the coins to acquire the icon are the 87 rated SBC and the exchanging of an icon. You can of course complete the Peter Schmeichel or Marc Overmars squad building challenge and get them for around 350K mark and submit them which would save you a ton of coins in the long haul.

It’s always best to do these rather expensive icons over time and not in one really big swoop! You want to gradually do it and the best time to complete it and get players cheap is obviously when a market crash happens.

collectionfifatips | FA apologises to Tottenham, Man United for tweet mocking Harry Kane

Craig Burley examines the difference in approach from Jose Mourinho and Mauricio Pochettino in Man United’s FA Cup semifinal win over Tottenham.

The Football Association has written to Tottenham and Manchester United to apologise for a tweet sent from the FA Cup’s official account that mocked striker Harry Kane after Spurs’ defeat on Saturday.

Both Spurs and United were left angry by the joke at Kane’s expense and sources said the striker, who could captain England at this summer’s World Cup, was bemused and disappointed by the tweet, which came at the end of a difficult week for the player and his club.

Just minutes after United’s 2-1 win in the FA Cup semifinal at Wembley Stadium, in which Kane was unusually subdued, a tweet was posted from the competition’s official account with the message, “What’s in your pocket, Chris” — and a video of United defender Chris Smalling saying “Harry Kane.”

The account is run in-house by the FA and the tweet also left senior figures at the organisation furious. It attracted a huge response, being retweeted over 20,000 times, before it was deleted.

An FA spokesman told ESPN FC: “We have written to both clubs to apologise for any offence caused.”

Kane has been the subject of light-hearted ridicule after claiming a goal that was originally credited to Christian Eriksen in Spurs’ win at Stoke on April 7.

A source told ESPN FC that Spurs were also left angry by comments on Sunday by Professional Footballers’ Association chairman Ben Purkiss, who poured further derision on Kane at the PFA Awards.

“Harry Kane is so prolific that he is able to score without touching the ball,” Cambridge defender Purkiss joked.

It was the latest jibe aimed at Kane by fellow professionals — which have also included his England teammates.

Kane came third behind Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah and Manchester City’s Kevin De Bruyne as PFA Player of the Year and was runner-up to City’s Leroy Sane in the young player category.

Spurs sources said it was an evening to celebrate another fabulous season for Kane, who remains in contention for the Golden Boot, rather than continue to mock him.

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has already said Kane, who has struggled for sharpness since returning from an ankle injury at the beginning of this month, was left disappointed by the furore.

collectionfifatips | Arsene Wenger will have plenty of offers – ex-Arsenal chief David Dein

Arsene Wenger delivers his verdict on Arsenal’s win over West Ham, what the future holds for him after his 22-year tenure ends and more.
‘One of the best.’ ‘He moved the goalposts.’ Premier League managers are full of praise for outgoing Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger.

Arsene Wenger will have “no shortage of offers” for new jobs and is already taking calls from interested clubs, former Arsenal vice-chairman David Dein told Sky Sports.

Dein, who hired Wenger in 1996 when he was an unknown figure in England, also said that he debated with his old friend last season about whether he should stay on, and predicted that the 68-year-old will find life away from football “like a bereavement.”

Wenger announced on Friday that he will quit at the end of the season despite being handed a new two-year deal last summer, with Arsenal limping toward their worst Premier Leauge finish of his 22-year reign.

“He will have no shortage of offers. I personally had calls from various people yesterday, asking to speak to him,” Dein said. “So he won’t be short of offers from clubs, if he wants the job.

“He’s going to be 69 in October, but he keeps himself extraordinarily fit. He is the same weight as when I met him, 75 kilos. He keeps himself so fit. He’s got a very active mind, such a knowledge of the game.

“And over the last few years, he has been approached by some of the biggest clubs in the world, Real Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain, the England national team wanted him at one stage.”

Dein added that he was not surprised by the announcement and that he has had plenty of discussions with Wenger about whether it was time to step down.

“It’s been coming. At the end of last season I was discussing with him, ‘Arsene, what do you want to do? Are you going to stay? Are you going to leave?’ He was a bit undecided,” Dein said.

Arsene Wenger announced Friday that he will quit his job at Arsenal at the end of the season.

“In the end, I said, ‘Arsene, do you know what your problem is?’ He said, ‘What’s that?’ I said, ‘You love the club too much.’ He’s so attached to it. So loyal, so dedicated. He felt responsible for the players coming through.

“That was an option for him, undoubtedly. I was weighing up, ‘If you leave now, this is the situation. If you go on, you roll the dice another year or two, what’s going to happen?’

“He made his own mind up and decided to stay. I felt the last couple of weeks, it has been getting more difficult for him, particularly with the team results. I though that, on a personal level, it was unlikely that he was going to stay after the end of the season.”

Wenger admitted on Sunday that life away from Arsenal will be difficult for him and Dein said he went through a similar challenge after leaving the club in 2007.

“It’s going to be tough initially,” Dein said. “As I found myself, it’s a way of life. He’s the first one at the club, the last one to leave. It will be difficult.

“It is rather like a bereavement and the various stages, the first one is denial and finally you get to acceptance and you move on. He has to have a good holiday and decide what he wants to do next.”

Dein also paid a glowing tribute to Wenger’s contributions for the club and hailed him as Arsenal’s greatest ever manager.

“His legacy will be for global football. His style of play, the way he has conducted himself, his integrity, his honesty. The way he has handled players. What he has done for the club is immeasurable,” Dein said.

“He will go down in history as the greatest Arsenal manager ever. We’ve built a fantastic training ground, sensational stadium. It was back on the Invincible team in 2003-04 that we managed to get financing for the stadium.”

Osorio and Toronto FC ready to make history on collectionfifatips

  • Toronto FC hoping to win first CONCACAF Champions League title
  • Canadian club face Mexican giants Chivas Guadalajara in the final
  • Osorio: The first leg is going to be key​

Most youngsters growing up in Canada usually have aspirations to be an ice hockey star or reach the podium at the Winter Olympics. For Toronto FC midfielder Jonathan Osorio, his dreams led to a career in football – a sport close to his South American roots.

“It’s a huge part of who I am. I grew up in Toronto, but in my household, it was a very Colombian culture,” Osorio said in an exclusive interview with “In Colombia, football is the big sport, and it was my dad’s favourite sport. He passed that on to me and my brothers and we grew up to love the game. I believe my Colombian roots have helped me get to where I am now.”

A proud Canadian, who has made 20 international appearances for the North American nation, Osorio is happy to share his favourite Colombian footballing moment. “It was at the last World Cup, James [Rodriguez]’s goal against Uruguay in the Round of 16 and Colombia making the quarter-finals for the first time. That was huge.”

Looking to make history
Osorio can relate to scoring an important goal on the big stage. Last Tuesday in the Estadio Azteca, his early strike against Mexican giants Club America was a key moment in securing Toronto FC’s place in this year’s CONCACAF Champions League final, as they won the semi-final clash 4-2 on aggregate. The result puts the Major League Soccer (MLS) club within touching distance of the region’s top club prize and claiming CONCACAF’s berth at the FIFA Club World Cup UAE 2018. “It was amazing [to score] and an honour to play in that stadium, to represent my city and everything, and to play in such a big game,” Osorio said. “More than anything, I was just happy about what [the goal] meant in the actual game.”

Toronto FC’s journey to the two-legged final is the latest chapter in what has been a highly successful period for the Canadian outfit. They earned their CONCACAF Champions League spot by successfully defending their Canadian Championship title before claiming their first-ever MLS Supporters’ Shield (regular season champions) and MLS Cup titles in late 2017.

The focus now is on ending the dominance of Mexican clubs in the CONCACAF Champions League, having already upset the odds by eliminating the Liga MX duo of Tigres UANL and Club America. Standing in Toronto FC’s way of an historic first title is Club Deportivo (Chivas) Guadalajara, with the first leg taking place in Toronto this Tuesday 17 April before the decisive leg is played in Guadalajara on Wednesday 25 April.

Osorio believes the game plan that successfully guided the Reds past Tigres and America will be key to overcoming Chivas in the final. “Our belief is that we can play with them,” Osorio said. “In those four games, we didn’t just sit back and defend a lot. What we did was attack them. Similar to the other series, the first game is going to be key. We need to give ourselves an advantage before going back to Mexico, so that’s a huge key. If we put all our focus into the first leg, we’ll be in good shape.”

Did you know?

  • Only Mexican clubs have won the CONCACAF Champions League title since the competition’s formation in 2008
  • Monterrey is the most successful CONCACAF Champions League side with three titles, while Club America is the most successful club in the region with seven CONCACAF titles
  • Real Salt Lake (2011) and Montreal Impact (2015) are the only other MLS clubs to have reached the final
  • Osorio is one six players to lead the competition’s scoring charts with three goals​

December dreams
Should Toronto FC realise their goal of a regional crown later this month, a ticket to the United Arab Emirates and this year’s Club World Cup would also be secured by the Reds. Though his main thoughts are on the final, Osorio appreciates the potential of his side being the first from Canada and MLS to appear in the world club finals.

“I think it’s every footballers dream to play on the biggest stage,” he said. “The Club World Cup means you are representing your club and your continent, and that you are playing for a trophy that means you are the best in the world. It’s biggest tournament in club soccer, so that would definitely be a dream come true.”
