FIFA 22 Team of the Group Stage mini-release went live Dec. 5 adding four new players to the promotional team in packs.

Team of the Group Stage celebrates the best players from the group stages of the three UEFA competitions. As far as promotional squads go, this is one of the best released so far in FIFA 22. Items like Vinicius Junior, Cristiano Ronaldo, Mohamed Salah and more are high-end meta items. Some players complain that most items are repeats of previously released items, but the players are still meta.

FIFA 22 Team of the Group Stage Mini-Release Adds Four Items

As is tradition now, EA Sports released four new items as part of a mini-release. Here's a look at the items:

  • Bruno Fernandes - 90 CAM - Manchester United (Champions League)
  • Trent Alexander-Arnold - 89 RB - Liverpool (Champions League)
  • Antony - 86 RW - Ajax (Champions League)
  • Karl Toko Ekambi - 84 LM - Lyon (Europa League)

This is the first special item released for Bruno Fernandes, Antony and Karl Toko Ekambi. This is the second special item for TAA, but it's also the same rating as is Rulebreakers item. It also lacks the pace that makes the Rulebreakers item so popular.

Still, that brings the total up to 18 promotional items in packs for the duration of the promotion. It doesn't seem like there will be a Team 2 as EA Sports didn't market this team as Team 1.
