The Brazilian wonderkid’s phenomenal Europa League debut campaign.

The Europa League Group Stage is getting closer to its end, and the Knockout Stage beckons.

In Group A, PSV Eindhoven is pegging Arsenal for top spot, with only 2 points between them.

Though Norwegian club, FK Bodø/Glimt, still has hope of qualifying for the next round if PSV fumbles throughout their final 3 matches, things are looking up for Ruud van Nistelrooy’s men this year.

Still caught up in the spirit of the Europa League, FIFA 23 has introduced a new ‘Road to the Knockouts’ (RTTK) player card for one of PSV’s most eye-catching performers.

That chosen player is PSV’s magical youth talent currently on loan from Ligue 1’s Troyes. Sàvio Moreira.

The 18-year old forward has been catching the attention of scouts all over Europe after impressing in his last 2 Europa League matches for the Dutch club.

Though the Brazilian wonderkid didn’t manage to notch any goal or assist in the competition so far, his exceptional running and dribbling has helped PSV remain unbeaten in Group A, winning 2 matches while drawing 1.

Here’s how Moreira’s RTTK player card looks like in-game:

(RW) Sàvio Moreira’s ‘Road to the Knockouts’ Player Card: OVR 85 (+15)

  • Pace: 88 (+21)
  • Dribbling: 87 (+15)
  • Passing: 85 (+15)
  • Shooting: 82 (+19)
  • Physicality: 61 (+19)
  • Defending: 40 (+10)

Moreira is incredibly fast, waltzing past opposition defences with relative ease. He is also a deft ball dribbler, following the footsteps of other samba icons like Robinho, Ronaldinho, and Kaká.

Although still just 18 years old, FIFA 23 acknowledges Moreira’s talents, and his RTTK card rivals many established players’ in the game right now.

Right now, Moreira’s SBC seems to last for the next few months, expiring on 20th January 2023 (Friday).

This might be a mistake from EA Sports, but since no official update has been given to rectify it, it’s safe to stick with it for now.

FIFA 23 is out now for Nintendo Switch, Google Stadia, PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
