FIFA 22 Xherdan Shaqiri SBC solutions - how to unlock this Ones To Watch card

Here's how to unlock the Xherdan Shaqiri Ones To Watch card in FIFA 22 with the most optimal SBC solutions.

FIFA 22 Shaqiri SBC solution: Shaqiri celebrates scoring a goal

 You can no longer get the Xherdan Shaqiri card in FIFA 22 because the limited-time SBC challenge has now expired.

To celebrate Xherdan Shaqiri’s transfer from Liverpool to Lyon, the winger was handed a Ones To Watch card near the launch of FIFA 22, which you could unlock by completing two fairly easy Squad Building Challenges.

This was the winger’s first-ever special Ultimate Team card, and it was later upgraded based on his performances over the course of the season. So with that in mind, was the FIFA 22 Xherdan Shaqiri SBC worth grinding for? Read on to find out.

It’s worth noting that the FIFA 22 SBCs have since expired, meaning it’s no longer possible to complete this objective in-game. Nevertheless, here’s how we did it back in the day.

FIFA 22 Xherdan Shaqiri Ones To Watch card stats

Xherdan Shaqiri’s Ones To Watch card wasn’t bad – even when you considered the stats of the best FIFA 22 wingers – but it did leave a lot to be desired.

Shaqiri only had 75 pace and 65 stamina, which wasn’t great – even for a starting squad. However, his 91 dribbling stats and the fact he had 5-star skills and a 4-star weak foot were definitely of value.

If you had the cash to do the SBC and he slotted right into your Ligue 1 team, then it was worth giving the challenges a bash.

FIFA 22 Xherdan Shaqiri SBC requirements

The FIFA 22 Xherdan Shaqiri SBC had two challenges: Tactical Emulation and Ligue 1.

Tactical Emulation was the easier of the two challenges, requiring at least one player from Lyon, a minimum team rating of 81, and a minimum chemistry of 75. Completing this challenge rewarded you with a Small Electrum Players pack.

Ligue 1 required at least one Ligue 1 player, a minimum team rating of 83, and a minimum team chemistry of 70. Finishing this challenge granted you a Gold Pack.

In total, to complete the two SBCs required to unlock Shaqiri, you could expect to spend around 20,000 coins. Of course, the costs could be cut if you used some of the players in your club or you managed to find some bargains on the transfer market.

As mentioned above, to unlock Shaqiri, you needed to complete two SBC challenges.

Tactical Emulation SBC Solution

Here were the players you needed for the Tactical Emulation SBC solution. The chemistry was slightly lower here, so we prioritised league links, blending La Liga, Ligue 1, and Serie A together.

As the chemistry was lower, we also put a couple of out-of-position players in, like Berardi. You could replace these with fodder from your club, provided you could link them with the existing squad.

  • GK: David Soria (La Liga, Getafe)
  • LB: Emerson Palmieri dos Santos (Ligue 1, OL)
  • CB: Marcelo (Ligue 1, OL)
  • CB: Dakonam Djené (La Liga, Getafe)
  • RB: Ruben Pena(La Liga, Villarreal CF)
  • RW: Domenico Berardi (Serie A, Sassuolo)
  • CM: Maxence Caqueret (Ligue 1, OL)
  • CM: Ivan Rakitić (La Liga, Seville)
  • CM: José Gómez Campaña (La Liga, Levante)
  • RM: Joaquín Sánchez Rodríguez (La Liga, Real Betis)
  • ST: Marko Arnautović (Serie A, Bologna)

Ligue 1 SBC Solution

Here were the players you needed for the Ligue 1 SBC solution. Serie A provided most of the links here as they were easy to link to the mandatory Ligue 1 players, but you could chop and change this based on the players readily available in your club at the time.

Again, since the chemistry needed was only 70, we added in a couple of out-of-position players, like Belotti and Volland, to reduce the cost.

  • GK: Salvatore Sirigu (Serie A, Genoa)
  • ST: Kevin Volland (Ligue 1, AS Monaco)
  • CB: Simon Kjaer (Serie A, Milan)
  • CB: Francesco Acerbi (Serie A, SS Lazio)
  • ST: Andrea Belotti (Serie A, Torino)
  • LM: Robin Gosens (Serie A, Atalanta)
  • CDM: Marcelo Brozovic (Serie A, Inter)
  • CM: Fabián Ruiz Peña (Serie A, Napoli)
  • RW:  Domenico Berardi (Serie A, Sassuolo)
  • ST: Duván Zapata (Serie A, Atalanta)
  • ST: Henrikh Mkhitaryan (Serie A, Roma FC)

So there you have it, the Xherdan Shaqiri SBC solutions. Although it wasn’t the most juicy SBC, it was certainly one worth adding to the collection if you had the means to do so.
