The Man of the Match cards were created in FUT 12 to reward the best players of matches not covered by the TOTW cards. It is the case of the UEFA club competitions final stages, domestic cups finals and International National Teams finals.
This year, there are two types of MOTM cards: dMOTM, domestic man of the match cards, used for domestic cups played by clubs; and cMOTM, continental man of the match, used for continental tournaments played by clubs.
This time, after a week of action in the German DFB-Pokal, England’s FA Cup, Spain’s Copa del Rey, and the Belgian Cup, we get five shiny new orange special items from a range of teams represented in those.
One of Spurs’ goal scorers, the versatile Erik Lamela, gets an intriguing position change to CAM. His lack of pace probably will limit him outside the most ardent Argentina/Tottenham backers’ sides, but he’s an interesting collectors’ item none the less.
Arjen Robben headlines the release arguably after his missile strike for Bayern in their emphatic 6-0 win over lower league Paderborn. His 89 RM orange player item looks to be superficial at best, but it’d make for a great pack pull if you’re lucky enough to do so.Rounding out the group is Sevilla’s Franco Vazquez, Swansea’s rising star Tammy Abraham, and Genk’s Ibrahima Seck.
If you own the regular card of a player elected MOTM, your card will be kept unchanged. If you want the improved version, you will need to buy the corresponding MOTM version in the market or pull it from a pack in that day.
