Saïd Benrahma named in FIFA 22’s ‘Team of the Group Stage’

Said Benrahma

West Ham United-supporting football gamers will be delighted to hear that Saïd Benrahma has become the latest Hammer to be awarded a ‘Special’ card in EA SPORTS’ FIFA 22!

The Algerian has been rewarded for his fine form in the UEFA Europa League so far this season – in which he has scored three goals in five appearances – with a ‘Team of The Group Stage (TOTGS)’ card.

Those strikes comprised an excellent brace away in Genk at the beginning of November, as well as the clincher at home to Rapid Vienna at the end of September.

The announcement marks West Ham’s seventh ‘Special’ FIFA Ultimate Team this season, with Angelo Ogbonna, Rice and Kurt Zouma all included in the FIFA Team of the Week at different stages.

Rice also received a unique ‘Numbers Up’ card, Issa Diop has received a UEFA Europa League ‘Road to the Knockout Stages’ item – which has already received one boost due to our qualification to the knockout round, and will be further boosted if West Ham defeat Dinamo Zagreb on Thursday – and Michail Antonio was reconfigured in the game in a Halloween-themed ‘Rulebreaker’ card.

Benrahma’s new European card sees his overall rating increased within FIFA Ultimate Team from the start-of-the-season 77 up to a strong 85.

The playmaker’s FIFA card now boasts a pace rating of 87 (up from an initial 77), with a shooting rating of 82 (up from 72), passing rated 83 (up from 73) and dribbling rated a whopping 90 (up from 81).

West Ham United gamers can collect Benrahma’s ‘Team of the Group Stage’ card in FIFA 22 Ultimate Team packs as of 6pm on Friday 3 December. There is no confirmed deadline for collecting the card, but the event is likely to last a fortnight.
