There is, of course, FIFA 22's Team of the Week promo which continues abated and there is sure to be some highly sought after cards after this weekend's action.

Mbappé will also surely make it, his well-taken goal in the Nations League final helping the player, and France, exercise their Euro demons.
The football wasn't consigned to Europe either, Leeds' Raphinha, who made his international debut with Brazil after coming on at half-time, helped his side come back from 1-0 against Venezuela to win 3-1 - with the winger getting two assists.
