SV Werder Bremen’s hitman is just getting warmed up.
Bundesliga’s new FIFA 23 ‘Player of the Month’ (POTM) award was given to SV Werder Bremen’s established striker, Niclas Füllkrug.
Though the club currently sits eighth in the league table, 29-year old Niclas Füllkrug is Bundesliga’s top scorer, grabbing 8 goals and 2 assists in his last 10 domestic matches.
In his current hot form, the team can realistically aim for a better finish before the end of the year, maybe even competing for a UEFA Champions League spot too.
Coming back to the present, though, Füllkrug will be receiving a new POTM player card in FIFA 23, boosting his in-game stats significantly.
Here’s the official EA video announcing his selection:
When it comes to his actual Ultimate Team (UT) card, take a look at it below:
(ST) Niclas Füllkrug’s ‘Player of the Month’ Player Card: OVR 84 (+9)
- Shooting: 86 (+10)
- Physicality: 84 (+10)
- Dribbling: 82 (+12)
- Pace: 73 (+12)
- Passing: 73 (+11)
- Defending: 44 (+8)
Füllkrug is a traditional striker, using his strong physicality to beat opposition defenders before powering shots past goalkeepers.
In fact, his physique is an important element for Werder Bremen’s tactics, capitalising on his height and strength to create openings for wingers to take advantage of.
Below, you can find the complete breakdown of Füllkrug’s POTM card and its stats:
Here are other important details of Füllkrug’s latest POTM card:
- Alternative Position: CF
- AcceleRATE: Lengthy
- Skills: 4 Stars
- Weak Foot: 4 Stars
- Preferred Foot: Right
- Attacking Work Rate: High
- Defensive Work Rate: Medium
Füllkrug could be a great addition to a new UT squad in FIFA 23, especially when his POTM card can be bought as cheaply as (current average):
- PlayStation/ Xbox: 19,150 Coins
- PC: 19,100 Coins
YouTuber, AhhhSprite, summarized Füllkrug’s new player card nicely:
Niclas Füllkrug ‘Player of the Month’ Squad-Building Challenge
For those that are interested in Füllkrug’s POTM player card, it can be unlocked by completing the following Squad-Building Challenge (SBC):
- Number of players from Bundesliga: Minimum 1
- Overall squad rating: 84

(Reward: Niclas Füllkrug ‘Player of the Month’ Player Card)
This shouldn’t take too long considering many in-game cards are still priced reasonably from the Transfer Market.
Still, for those that are having trouble assembling the ideal squad, Kingflipper might have a good recommendation to follow:
Füllkrug’s new SBC will be up till 20th November (Sunday), but this shouldn’t be a problem considering how easy it is to be completed.
FIFA 23 is now available for Google Stadia, Nintendo Switch, PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
