I bet EA will do an objective group with 4 or 5 players and maybe an SBC... So I thought it might be fun to speculate who these players might be. I'm only gonna focus on Republic of Ireland players because typicallyl that's what EA have done. I basically think there will be one of every level;one attacker, one midfielder, etc. With maybe an extra midfielder or defender thrown in. Think they'll give them some big boosts up to 85+
At striker I think it's most likely to be Callum Robinson (robbed of IF earlier this FIFA) or Adam Idah (had a really good run of games before he got injured, and also BPL helps). A few wildcards would be Scott Hogan, Michael Obafemi, or David McGoldrick. McGoldrick would be an interesting inclusion, but I think the others are more likely.
At CM I think Josh Cullen and Jason Knight are good looks.
Wingers: Jack Byrne (if you can call him a winger) or Michael Duffy I think would be fairly likely if EA are to include a League of Ireland Player. Would love to have one of those boosted. Also at winger you can never write off McGeady or James McClean as well.
Defenders: John Egan would be a good shout (also robbed of an IF). Would also love to see Andrew Omobamidele included. Cyrus Christie and Seamus Coleman are usually in the mix as well.
Finally at GK there are 4 solid options: Darren Randolph is the obvious one. Gavin Bazunu was somehow robbed of a future stars (maybe next year?). Kelleher would be decent, though he could receive a MOTM for his recent heroics, and finally Mark Travers doing quite a job in the championship. Good thing is if he and Bazunu don't get cards for St. Paddys then they are odds on to get a TOTS since they're having such good years at club level.
